Who’s the Actor in the New iPhone Commercial?

Great talent is so often underappreciated. You’ve seen the new iPhone commercial, but do you know the actors who starred in it?

A lot of people are asking about the man in the recent commercial for iPhone called “Nap.” In it, a man sleeps beside his dog in a deck chair in a peaceful backyard.

He’s woken up by the ping of text messages coming in on his iPhone.

His motorized chair props him up slowly, and the man opens one eye. The iPhone Face ID recognizes his unique appearance, unlocks automatically, and displays the messages, without requiring him to expend any further effort. He lays back down to sleep.

The actor in the new iPhone commercial, “Nap,” is Peter Koch. IMDb shows that he has appeared in Heartbreak Ridge, Loverboy, and Conspiracy Theory, among other films.

Here is Peter Koch’s acting reel on YouTube:
