Chances are that if you’ve been watching television over the past couple weeks you may have noticed the new AT&T ad campaign for its latest Blackberry phones.

Shortly after the campaign started, MMA fans began to notice that one of the commercial’s stars looked very familiar.

With an unmistakable gruffness, chiseled jaw line, and trademark mustache it became clear that the commercials were the latest foray into acting for former UFC and Pride star Don “The Predator” Frye.

“I got lucky, the luck of the Irish,” said Frye of his recent acting exploits. “Michael Mann likes me for some reason. He’s put me to work three times; on Miami Vice, Public Enemies, and then he chose me for the AT&T commercial.

For some reason I can't remember Don in Miami Vice, I'll have to watch it again.

He needs his own weekday talk show. Remember kids, Don Frye Tells It Like It Is.

don frye is a classic personality of the sport. anybody that has heard him talk or read any of his interviews remembers him forever. i would like to see frye stay around the sport just to hear what hes got to say about the latest events. him and tank abbot.

My dream commentary team would consist of Don Frye,Bas Rutten, and Kevin Randleman.

The only commentary team that would be more interesting than any of the fights they did play by play for!

I want Don Frye to get one more fight against Kimbo Slice. Now that's a novelty fight worth paying for!
