Until he became the Allstate Guy in 2003, actor Dennis Haysbert was known for his role in the action series 24. In 2003, he was elected as the spokesperson for Allstate Insurance, and since then, he’s most famously known for being the Allstate Guy. He appeared in a series of Allstate commercials which all end with one of two slogans by Haysbert: “are you in good hands?” and “that’s Allstate’s stand.”
Haysbert has appeared in other commercials, including a national television ad to raise awareness and warn the public against lending discrimination. Since 2015, Haysbert serves as the opening introduction voice for NBC’s news show Meet The Press.
