"Mac guy" leaves Apple ads
A new report claims that ads from Apple's "Get a Mac" campaign will no longer feature the "Mac guy," actor Justin Long. Despite Apple's efforts to prepare a new batch of commercials, Long -- who starred in Dodgeball and Herbie: Fully Loaded -- is no longer taking part in the commercials, according to Radar Online, which confirmed the fact with a representative for the actor. "Every ad you see Justin in is for that previous time period only," the representative said. "There's no long-term deal with him. Justin's a movie star, not a commercial guy." Apple's other participants -- Phil Morrison and John Hodgman -- are returning to shoot more spots, as reportedly confirmed by Hodgman's representative.
