It was a cast reunion as Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson joined Michael J. Fox at the Back To The Future 25th anniversary Trilogy Blu-Ray release celebration at Gustavino’s in New York City on Monday (october 25).
No need for time travel for Michael. On the red carpet, the Canadian-born actor said he’s happy with his life just the way it is.
In fact, he says if he could jump in a DeLorean time machine — like his Back to the Future character Marty McFly — and share any advice, he would say “keep doing what you’re doing.” Michael says the role brought him to where he is now and he “wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.”
He says the 1985 film gave him worldwide notoriety and that he could “walk down the street in Bangkok” and hear “Marty McFly!”
Michael was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991. He no longer acts regularly, but will appear on an upcoming episode of The Good Wife on CBS.
