Patrick Warburton is a 'top of the line' PC in the latest Mac ad

I always thought he would have been perfect as the Big Red Cheese, too.

And you left out one of my favorites, his portrayal of Eric on Dave's World.

I've always thought that Patrick Warburton would be the perfect choice to play Captain Marvel. Shazam!

Patrick Warburton is basically my favorite person ever. Always glad to see him in whatever he does, even a commercial.
