One thing I love about film blogging is everyday you will learn something new and interesting. Unless of course your one of those egotistical bloggers that thinks you know everything. Today from Cinematical comes a really cool never before seen special feature from Back to the Future missing one key thing.. Michael J Fox.
Unbeknownst to me Michael J Fox did not get the role of Marty McFly he only was given the part after the lead actor was replaced because his comedic timing was not working.
Eric Stoltz was originally cast in the role and they shot for 5 weeks with him before finally replacing him with Michael J Fox. This role shot Michael J Fox to fame and is easily the most recognized role for him in film outside of perhaps The Frighteners. Checkout the clip below which includes never before seen footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly.
