Adam Driver, who rose to fame playing Lena Dunham’s on-again, off-again boyfriend in the HBO series Girls, will be the star of Snickers’ 'You’re Not You When You’re Hungry' Super Bowl commercial this year.

The campaign, created by BBDO New York, has become a Super Bowl favorite since its 2010 launch starring Betty White. Last year, the candy brand’s spot featured Willem Dafoe dressed up as Marilyn Monroe.
