J.K. Simmons as the yellow M&M
This one might throw you for a loop! Can you believe the voice of the yellow M&M is actually J.K. Simmons? You might remember him from Whiplash, Spiderman, Oz, or Juno. In fact, Simmons took home an Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his role in Whiplash. J.K. Simmons might be most well-known for his role as Dr. Emil Skoda on the NBC series Law & Order, which makes us wonder, how did he end up as the voice of the yellow M&M?
The face you’d recognize anywhere
The commercials featuring a yellow peanut M&M and a smaller red chocolate M&M have been cracking up television viewers for years. The duo often gets into mischief, and the yellow M&M’s run in encounters with Santa Claus are classic-but who knew such a well-known actor was the voice of the candy? Simmons has also appeared on Broadway as well as in video games, so is there anything this actor can’t do? M&Ms are produced by Mars Inc. which made a whopping $35 billion in 2017.
