Actor Chris Waters
Actor Chris Waters is finding himself in the middle of a couple controversial projects lately.
In an ironically accurate commercial, Waters stars in a spot for Beats by Dre opposite the polarizing NFL player Richard Sherman. The ad positions the Seattle Seahawks star as himself getting grilled by reporters, including Waters, in the locker room. Of course, no one knew the commercial, which premiered the same day as Sherman’s real-life outburst, would be so timely.
Waters explains, “This all happened so quickly. The spot came out and I was obviously excited about it. Then Sherman makes the play to win the game, and goes on his little post game rant. Suddenly, it seemed like everyone in the country was talking about him. Next thing you know, I start seeing the spot all over the internet on various news outlets, such as CBS, Perez Hilton, Mashable, AdWeek, Business Insider, USA Today, etc. It was insane!”
As if that wasn’t enough, just days later the anticipated Joe Carnahan film “Stretch,” which Waters also appears in, made news when Universal announced it was dumping the action-comedy from their distribution lineup.
Originally set for a March 2014 release, the flick stars Patrick Wilson, Chris Pine, Brooklyn Decker, Ed Helms, Jessica Alba and Ray Liotta. “I'm sure that Joe Carnahan will find a way to get this film released. It's his baby, and I have no doubt he will figure out a way,” Waters commented.
Waters previous, and less controversial, credits include Spike TV’s “1000 Ways to Die” and “Diagnosis: Dead or Alive” on Discovery Fit and Health. He’s also appeared in numerous indie projects and commercial projects, including Mercedes Benz, Toyota and Qualcomm.
