Before They Were Stars (2-for-1 Special): Michael J. Fox and Pee-Wee Herman in “Midnight Madness”

I’m not sure there are many things that will make me feel older than the news that Michael J. Fox is turning 50 today and that it’s now been 30 whole years since he made his official movie debut. The film in question was a family comedy called Midnight Madness and contained one scene of “Before They Were Stars” nirvana featuring 19-year old Michael and a small role for the future Pee-Wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens! And since this scene takes place in a video arcade, nostalgic gamers will probably have a field day spotting all the old-school arcade games. Notice that Fox is standing in front of an arcade game based on the infamous cult film, Death Race 2000, which apparently allowed you to simulate running down innocent pedestrians!
