Pretty sure Willis did those Seagram's during his Moonlighting years. Don't think it counts.

Actually, Morgan Freeman was well known as Easy Reader in the Electric Company before he made that tv commercial.

The Matt LeBlanc Heinz commercial always bugged me, since the first time I saw it, because although it was a neat trick to get his hot dog covered in ketchup like that...once he's gotten it on the hot dog, that whole bottle of ketchup will continue to pour out all over the sidewalk, hot dog cart, and anyone walking under it. And it's obvious that is a busy sidewalk. Enjoy your hot dog jerk, i have to get to the cleaners!

What about Jim Varney? I know he wasn't a HUGE star, but he was in almost 3,000 commercials before he created the Ernest character.

but what about the other cereals?, there must be another farm out there with snap, crackle and pop waking everyone up
Mike Kruk (8 days ago)
It's a rooster. Because you eat cereal for breakfast, in the morning, when the rooster crows as the sun comes up on a farm.

I live in Montana and years ago I went to deliver a lunch to a friend of ours who was cutting hay on they ranch. His wife asked me to do it. And the mosquitoes were horrible! I said to him, "C, how can you stand it?" He was really pouring sweat. And he brought up a gallon of that amber Listerine. "I use this!" "Mouthwash??" "Have you ever read the label?" "No." I did use it but I never had. Sure enough. It said to also use it for keeping mosquitoes off you." No kidding. Something like. And I'm in my sixties now and I always bring it everywhere in the summer. You will be shocked how effective it is. By the way, this kind has alcohol in it. I learned from some people that when they got desperate and didn't have very much money, they'd drink this to get drunk. So, be careful. Maybe that's what keeps the bugs off. I don't know. I switched to their non-alcoholic brand which is better tasting.

. If we're talking Matt LeBlanc in 80s commercials, I'd rather they had picked the Cherry 7up one.

I'm a fan of Jared Leto's rollerblading 90's Coca-Cola commercial 😂 It's actually pretty cute.

William Gottlieb (23 days ago)
No, no, Bryan Cranston does not look anything like Christopher Reeve. At the most, he looks like some guy who made a half-assed attempt at a Clark Kent costume for a Halloween party, which is throwing you off.
Jason Gallman (23 days ago)

+OgGarcioVega I could see that. If your co-worker follows you up a telephone pole and offers you mouth wash, you might have a problem.

I have to mention that Morgan Freeman was already well known before this commercial as a personality educator on "The Electric Company" a children's educational TV Show, along with Pat Morita who was in "The Karate Kid" Films & was also in the last few Season(s) of "Happy Days". And lastly Rita Moreno anyone who has watched "The Electric Company" as a child will remember the bellowing " HEY YOU GUY'S." Well that's none other then Rita Moreno herself. I think there where also other celebrities on that show that may have got there start or where already somewhat known but by far "The Electric Company" is the record holder for starting the careers of the big names of Hollywood we all know today. More the "Sesame Street".
