RED & YELLOW M&M’S – BILLY WEST (RED) & JK SIMMONS (YELLOW) / ORIGINAL VOICES WERE JON LOVITZ & JOHN GOODMAN

Who knew that the face (or rather, the voices) of the successful M&M campaigns were such accomplished actors? The red and yellow M&Ms are voiced by Billy West and JK Simmons, respectively. Billy West is perhaps the most successful voice actor this side of Mel Blanc and JK Simmons recently won an Academy Award for his performance in “Whiplash.” Even their original voices were hugely famous – they were played by Jon Lovitz and John Goodman during the early days of the campaign in the 1990s.
