REPUBLIC, Mo. A Republic native is the new face of Busch beer. Gerry Downey graduated from Republic High School in 1990, went on to SMSU, or now Missouri State, and is also a Little Theater alum.
He talked with KY3s Sara Forhetz via Skype-- in L.A. about his new gig. He says he's popped up in multiple movies and TV shows, but nothing of this magnitude, until now!
You can catch him on the Busch Beer commercial that airs during the Super Bowl game on Sunday night. Kickoff is at 5:30p.m.
This is the first Busch beer commercial to air in a very long time.
