'Law & Order' star Anthony Anderson re-ups his spokesman role in Novo's Type 2 effort with a tougher tone on CV risks.

No­vo Nordisk gets se­ri­ous in ‘Get Re­al’ di­a­betes cam­paign with spokesman, ac­tor and pa­tient An­tho­ny An­der­son

Ac­tor An­tho­ny An­der­son is a long-time No­vo Nordisk spokesman and Type 2 di­a­betes ad­vo­cate. As the star of the hit TV show “Black-ish,” An­der­son first teamed with No­vo for the orig­i­nal “Get Re­al About Di­a­betes” cam­paign launch in 2018. The ef­fort de­buted around a spe­cial episode of “Black-ish” in which An­der­son’s char­ac­ter, An­dre “Dre” John­son, is di­ag­nosed with Type 2 di­a­betes.

Fast for­ward to 2022, and An­der­son, who was di­ag­nosed with Type 2 di­a­betes in 2002, is con­tin­u­ing on with the next it­er­a­tion of the cam­paign, speak­ing up in a new “Get Re­al” TV ad with a dis­tinc­tive­ly hard­er-hit­ting tone about the car­dio­vas­cu­lar risks of the dis­ease.
