Question: What's the name of the Dell dude in those commercials? Have I seen him in other things? — E. Honeycutt, Pittsburgh Pa.

Televisionary: Dude... Steven, the guy convincing the world to pick up a Dell in those ads, is played by Chattanooga-born, 21-year-old New York University acting major Ben Curtis. But unless you caught him in an off-off-Broadway production of Sam Shepard's Buried Child or passed him on the street, it's doubtful you've seen him in anything else.

Of course, his newfound fame may change all that and I'd be happy to tell you all about it, but my News &#038 Gossip colleagues already interviewed the lad and handled those duties quite nicely, so you can read about it here.
