He played in the television show In voor en tegenspoed. He was in the comedy redaction of the show Spijkers (later: Kopspijkers).

For the soundtrack of the movie All Stars, the song Als Het Vuur Gedoofd Is from Acda en de Munnik was used. The film was a success in the Netherlands, so the VARA decided to turn it into a series, in which Acda starred as goalkeeper Willem. Every episode started with the song "Groen als gras" from Acda en De Munnik. Source: Article "Thomas Acda" from Wikipedia in english, licensed under CC-BY-SA 3.
