GOTTA SEE IT: Thornton Does Another TV Commercial

Joe Thornton, actor?

The San Jose Sharks legend, still not officially retired, was spotted again recently on TV during the NHL playoffs, not chasing a Stanley Cup, but in a Just For Men commercial.

ESPN legend in her own right, Linda Cohn, appeared with Jumbo, peppering him in the 30-second spot with questions about Just For Men 1-Day Beard & Brow Color’s role in coloring Thornton’s famous gray beard.

It’s a light-hearted ad that you can see online here.

It’s the second big commercial that Thornton has done this season. Jumbo co-starred with P.K. Subban in a similarly light-hearted ad for Apple that debuted during the Super Bowl.

Since Thornton isn’t playing and isn’t officially on the San Jose Sharks’ front office payroll – Jumbo has been spotted with management at many San Jose Sharks and Barracuda games, it appears as an unofficial consultant or advisor – is acting now his main source of revenue?

I’m here for it! They’re going to need a new Professor Dumbledore for the upcoming Harry Potter reboot.
