What happened to ‘To Guys’ from Sonic Drive-In commercials?

Commercial actors, such as Flo from Progressive and Jake from State Farm, can become beloved well-known names. So when they disappear, like “Two Guys” from the Sonic Drive-In commercials, it feels like someone close to you has simply disappeared. Here’s what happened to the Sonic guys and what they’ve been up to since their decade of working for the fast food business.

Who are TJ Jagodowski and Peter Grosz?

Comedians TJ Jagodowski and Peter Grosz were the faces of Sonic Drive-In for just over a decade, making them two of the most recognizable faces in America. The two were loved for their silly jokes and excellent comic timing. They first appeared in fast-food commercials, filmed exclusively in cars, in 2002. For the next 10 years, the duo could be seen spinning down foot-long hot dogs, milkshakes and various other treats that Sonic offers.

In 2020, however, the company decided to go in a different direction with their commercials, and “To Guys,” as they became known, was set aside. Most recently, Sonic has used footage of real fans to advertise their food, though commercials with “Two Guys” will continue to appear. Sonic Chief Marketing Officer Lori Abou Habib described the characters as “a big part of our voice and they will be a part of our brand going forward.”

Both boast a history career

So what do Jagodowski and Grosz do when they are not eating fast food together? Before ever working with Sonic, the two made a name for themselves as actors, comedians and improvers. Jagodowski, in particular, was praised for his improv abilities by the Chicago Improv Festival. New City Chicago once wrote of him: “If Miles Davis had pursued comedy instead of music, the results might have looked something like this.” Jagodowski also has a healthy amount of acting credits under his belt, including appearances on hit films such as Get HarHowever Oz the great and powerful.

Not to be outdone, Grosz has his own great skills, as evidenced by his successful career as a comedy writer. He worked as a writer on The Colbert Report from 2007 to 2010. He joined Late Night with Seth Meyers as a member of the writing staff in 2014. Between these concerts, Grosz showed his acting skills on popular TV shows such as Veep, in which he played the recurring character Sidney Purcell, a hard-nosed oil lobbyist. Most recently, he appeared in The wonderful Mrs. Maisel as Bernie Zucker.

What else have Jagodowski and Grosz been working on together?

The Sonic commercials are not the only time Grosz and Jagodowski have worked together. The two comic talents both appeared in the 2006s Stranger than fiction with comedian colleague Will Ferrell in the lead role as two of his IRS colleagues. By that time, they had already been working together for several years on the Sonic commercials, so it was probably a nice change of pace to see each other outside a car.
