Back To The Future: Then And Now that Will Make you Reminisce Your Life

With Back To The Future day having passed recently, many people have been spending the month of October reminiscing on the beloved franchise and everything pop culture surrounding it. I thought this would be a good time to take a look at where the stars of the series are now and what they’ve been up to recently.

Along with various guest appearences and voice acting in films such as Stuart Little, Fox also starred in the sitcom Spin City until he was forced to leave due to the onset of Parkinsons Disease. Since his semi-retirement he has focused on philanthropy, putting his time and effort into pushing for a cure for the disease he has suffered with since 1991. The work towards this includes the creation of the Michael J. Fox foundation.

Christopher Lloyd is likely remembered alongside the Back To The Future Series for his role in the television series Taxi. Along with this he has appeared in video games and various films such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Addams Family and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. His face and voice have become synonymous with the character of Doc Brown, something which has led to his appearance in certain productions as a cameo.

After playing the mother of Marty McFly, Thompson appeared in the often pilloried Howard the Duck, Some Kind Of Wonderful and the Beverly Hillbillies. Apart from that, she has also appeared on television shows included Switched At Birth which she has appeared in since 2011.

Crispin Glover

Crispin Glover is often seen portraying some incredibly eccentric characters, which along with his persona in the media has led to him being seen as quite an eccentric character himself. Apart from his fairly extensive film work in productions such as Charlie’s Angels, River’s Edge, Rubin and Ed and Willard, Glover created his own company Volcanic Eruptions. Through this company he produces surrealist films and books which he then tours with, offering a Q&A afterwards.

Thomas F. Wilson

For those who haven’t seen Freaks and Geeks, the sadly short lived television series, I suggest that you find a way to do so now. I mention it because Wilson himself was in the series playing Coach Fredericks, a role he is not almost as well known for in cult circles as he is for Biff Tannen from the Back To The Future series. He has also done various voice work for shows such as Family Guy while also providing voices for many video games.
