History alum stars in Jeep commercial, new movie

Ex-longhorn belts "Rock Me Gently" in popular ad

Posted: December 4, 2007

The spot features Bartholomew driving a Liberty and listening to '70s pop hit "Rock Me Gently." Soon a squirrel, two birds and a wolf jump into the car and join a group sing-along. Adweek magazine named the ad one of October's best spots.

Bartholomew previously starred in episodes of "Without a Trace," "Yes, Dear" and "The Riches." He can be seen next in the feature film "Charlie Wilson's War," starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts.
