(FOX News Magazine) – Much like the rest of us, Hollywood's hottest celebrities spent their formative years stuffing their faces with flame-broiled beef, Enchiritos, and double-cheeseburger pizza. Unlike us, however, those celebrities were stuffing their soon-to-be-recognizable faces for the good of their careers. Before they hit it big, beloved actors such as Michael J. Fox and Ben Affleck were starring in fast food commercials for places like McDonald's and Burger King. Here are 16 big names to do so:

  • James Franco: When Elvis finally comes back from the dead, he's going to want one thing and one thing only: Pizza Hut. At least that's the sentiment of this Pizza Hut ad featuring James Franco as a skeptic who wrongly assumes otherwise.
  • Michael J. Fox: Michael J. Fox desperately wants his date's affections, but he's also interested in her mouthwatering French fries. Luckily, he escapes this McDonald's commercial with both.
  • Steve Carell: When Brown's chicken switched to a cholesterol-free recipe, Steve Carell was extremely excited to share the news. In fact, he was so excited that he completely disregarded the white sedan that almost ran over a motorcyclist at the 20 second mark.
