What If Eric Stolz Played Marty McFly In “Back To The Future”?
So, apparently, Eric Stolz was originally cast as Marty McFly in “Back to the Future.” And the footage has surfaced. Director Robert Zemekis and producer Steven Spielberg decided after five weeks of filming that Eric just wasn’t making the magic happen as Marty. So they started over with Michael J. Fox. Good call, because the movie turned out just right. No offense to Eric, who is a great actor (he scared the crap out of me in “Mask”); he just may not be as funny as Michael J. Fox. Or look as adorable sitting in a DeLorean. [NY Post]
