Just as Revolt and Time Warner Cable announced Drake to be the headliner to the pre-Super Bowl party, – set to take place on Jan.1st at New York’s Meatpacking District – Time Warner Cable is tying Drake in even closer with the star studded weekend as he is set to be the star of Time Warner Cable’s Super Bowl commercial!
Following Time Warner Cable’s 2012 ad buys starring Ricky Gervais and their most recent in 2013 starring Breaking Bad’s Norman Reedus, Drake is set to be the superstar of this years commercial.
Time Warner Cable’s exec VP and chief sales and marketing officer, Jeffrey Hirsch refused to share any creative details of Drake’s role and the commercial, but says
“He’s not just a phenomenal performer, but a phenomenal actor. I got to watch him at the shoot, and he can really act. He’s gonna be even bigger for many years to come.”
Drake continues to grow not only as a musician but also as an actor and a business man, as he landed his first role after a long acting hiatus in Adam McKay’s “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues”.
Tune in to Fox on February 2nd to catch the Super Bowl and Drake’s highly anticipated acting performance during the commercial break! We are looking forward to seeing Drake in many more roles and make his return to acting.
