Actors have to begin their careers somewhere, and many got their start in commercials.
One of the earliest gigs for Christian Slater was in a Star Wars toy commercial, which was unearthed for an interview on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'. Check it out!
The commercial is great, but the best part of this clip is seeing Slater talk through some of his own fandom for Star Trek, and the generally genial ease he displays in the conversation. Not what we would have expected from the mean-eyed rebel from Heathers and the anarchist from Mr. Robot, but that's what makes the interview all the more satisfying.
