The New Maytag Man - Sheriff Carter...

...actor Colin Ferguson.



I read that he just became a father last September, so this contract probably pays well until another series comes around.

I didn't find any posts on this through a search so forgive if this is old news but I saw the commercial recently and said Damn, that's Carter!

I just saw this yesterday. I miss him. He was by far my favorite character on Eureka.

Yep, recognized him instantly. I hope the gig pays well.

He also has popped up as a guest star on a few shows lately. Damned, though, if I can remember which ones.

He'll probably end up in another series on SyFy. I think they keep all of their actors on retainer and use them for every series they produce.

I do wish he had picked a better product to hawk. Maytags suck.

Agreed. I watched my parents buy a Maytag clothes washer based on the marketing... Its "initial quality" was not at all good.

For me, he's much too recognizable as Sheriff Carter to be believable as the Maytag Repair Man!!

In 1988 When Gordon Jump took over the role he was still recognized by tv audiences as Arthur Carlson from WKRP.

The original Maytag Repair Guy did it for about 20 years.

I never watched WKRP so it worked for me

The original Maytag guy is who I always picture. Just like there will always be one Mr. Whipple, or old lady who says "Where's the Beef" or any other person who's an iconic pitch person for a specific product. It just doesn't feel right with someone else doing it.

So I guess your world was rocked when they switch Darrin's on Bewitched.

Showing my age...wasn't the original Maytag Man played by an actor who was a character named Foxy on The Ann Sothern Show?

I love Colin Ferguson and haven't seen this yet. Though I don't watch many commercials anymore.

I just did a search for these on YouTube - they are hysterical! I was laughing out loud at work. He plays it just right. Humor and serious. He can do that.



Maytag


"lazy toaster" had me rolling on the floor.

I was watching an old episode of Malcolm in the Middle the other day, and was surprised to see good old Sheriff Carter in a small role.

He sounds/kind of looks like the Dirty Jobs guy... (had to look it up, Mike Rowe.. I don't think I've ever seen more than a few minutes of that, but have heard him on podcasts and I think seen Rowe in other things.)

You've probably seen Rowe in Ford commercials.

I've been straight all my life, so I only cared who played Samantha. Although, in all honesty, Endora could have made me think about playing for the other team.

Aww, I like Agnes Morehead as Endora. She hammed it up so well.
