The new Netflix original comedy series Pretty Smart is here, and it’s one of the funniest Netflix shows of 2021. There’s no doubt that it will grow into a fan-favorite series because of the witty writing and excellent cast chemistry.

Pretty Smart stars Young & Hungry star Emily Osment as Chelsea, a Harvard grad and aspiring novelist, who finds her intellect challenged when she moves in with her comparatively low-brow sister Claire and her three equally free-spirited roommates.

While assimilating into this new group, which also includes the handsome physical trailer Grant and the lawyer-turned-spiritual healer Solana, Chelsea learns a thing or two about what she actually needs to achieve happiness.

Although you’ll see some familiar faces in the series with Osment and Gregg Sulkin in the main cast, you might also recognize a few other familiar faces without putting a real name to their face. Specifically, was that Jake from the State Farm commercials in Pretty Smart?

Who is Jake from State Farm in Pretty Smart?

Yes, your eyes did not deceive you: That was Jake from State Farm in the new Netflix sitcom! However, this time, he’s not representing one of the leading insurance firms in the country. He’s merely acting in a recurring role in a Netflix comedy series.

If you didn’t know, Jake from State Farm is played by the actor Kevin Miles, who has also appeared in such shows as S.W.A.T., Underdogs and Criminal Minds. In July, Miles posted a photoset on Instagram for his birthday, which featured a glimpse of the Pretty Smart set.

In the new sitcom, Miles plays Claire’s new boyfriend Dave, who she meets while attending a pottery class with Jayden. She’s soon smitten with Dave, and their relationship heats up quickly before she breaks up with him to figure out her feelings for Grant.

Miles appears in three episodes of Pretty Smart’s first season, but we hope to see the actor otherwise known as Jake from State Farm back as Dave in season 2, if Netflix should decide to renew the hilarious series for more laughs.
