Footage of Eric Stoltz’s Marty McFly!

Finally, thanks to the release of the 25th Anniversary Back to the Future Trilogy Blu-Ray we get to see actual footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly. While Michael J. Fox was the producers original choice for McFly, conflicts with his sit-com Family Ties stopped him from being part of the production, so the producers went with Stoltz in the role. Watch this video from the Hollywood Reporter for more details…

Back to the Future is easily one of my favorite films and the trilogy really stand up to the test of time. Stoltz, while a good actor, was a terrible choice for Marty McFly and I’m so glad the producers not only saw that, but had the balls to replace him 5 weeks in (which is crazy and nowhere near the norm). Michael J Fox is Marty McFly and I think that casting was key to making the series work.
