And Almost Starring

Episode 32 - Back to the Future

January 5, 2021

For our first film of the new year (woo hoo!) we’re looking at everyone almost cast in the time travelling comedy classic Back to the Future! Which method actor was fired after filming as Marty for six weeks? Which Oscar-winning actor/director was up for Biff? Which star of The Office originally signed a two-picture deal before being let go? And what would the raunchy teen comedy version that studios wanted have looked like? Also – let’s go to the movies to see the new Michael J. Fox hit: Spaceman from Pluto!


Back to the Future stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover, Thomas F. Wilson, Claudia Wells, James Tolkan, Casey Siemaszko, J.J. Cohen, and Billy Zane; directed by Robert Zemeckis
