You might not believe it, but Nintendo used to have some pretty cool commercials. (I know, it's easy to forget that when this is what you're used to during the Wii U era.)

But, back in '91, Nintendo was at the top of its game with the SNES. And for one of their ads promoting the console—and now classic games like F-Zero, Pilotwings, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past—the company recruited 22-year-old Paul Rudd. The commercial happened four years before Rudd would break out in 1995's Clueless, and more than two decades before he was cast as the superhero Ant-Man. Rudd's 45 now, and he still looks the same. 

But he's not the only actor to have starred in a video game commercial when they were younger. Jack Black was in an ad for the Atari 2600 back in 1982. While we're at it, here's another famous Paul Rudd commercial.
