Hacking Into Lowe's

Admittedly, this one is a guess, although I have a strong feeling I am on the right track. Let's say 90 percent. But again, call me on it if it's incorrect.

UPDATE: This is no longer a guess; it's him. And to make it that much better, he is a recent movie called "Sex and the City"--you may have heard of it. He plays the Business Guy applicant that meets with Carrie, only to reveal he is wearing pink heels.

There is a Lowe's commercial where a dad is telling his son that he told the store they would deliver and remove the family's appliances for free; the back of Lowe's the truck then reveals that these things are already free. The commercial then cuts to an in-store view where a salesperson is helping a woman with the washers/dryers. The salesperson looks a heck of a lot like Razor or Blade from "Hackers," but you only get a split-second glance at him.

Note: I am still looking for a video of it so you all can see. No luck yet, but I will update when it is available. In the meantime, here is an image of the actor.

Actor: Peter Y. Kim (Blade from "Hackers")
Commercial(s): Lowe's (same-day delivery)
Previous work: "Hackers" and "Boston Legal" and now "Sex and the City" (the movie)
Fun(ny) Fact: For the first couple days after "SATC" (the movie) was released, the character of Business Guy was listed by IMDb as being played by Pedro Kim. Pedro and Peter are not the same person. The error has since been corrected.
