Someone had the brilliant idea of featuring a location scout in a national Chase Sapphire Reserve ad with comedian James Corden. Someone had an even more brilliant idea to cast location pro Leo Fialho, LMGI in that role.
An occasional actor, holding a SAG card, Leo’s name was entered in the casting pool by a commercial producer he sometimes works with. Next thing he knew, he was ad-libbing with Mr. Carpool Karaoke at locations in downtown Los Angeles.

Fialho enthused, “It was the latest call time I have ever had—7 a.m.! It was a great experience, with a lot of opportunity for improvisation.”
And yes, he even offered to pick up the yellow directional signs for the location manager when they made a company move.
