Michael J. Fox Wasn't The OG Marty McFly In Back To The Future! PLUS 10 Other Movies That Had A Last Minute Casting Change!

no title

Most true Back To The Future fans know that Michael J. Fox wasn't the first actor cast as Marty McFly!

Originally, up-and-coming method actor Eric Stoltz received that honor, and played the role well into the first few weeks of production!

But in the middle of filming, director Robert Zemeckis noticed a problem — Stoltz was a great dramatic actor, but he didn't bring the comedy that was needed for the film!

So, they went back to recast and eventually found Fox, who was obviously PERFECT for the role.

But Stoltz was forced to continue shooting for another few weeks, totally unaware that his days as Marty were fading away faster than the McFly kids in that picture! AWKWARD!

Back to the Future isn't the only film with a last minute re-cast — find out which other movies suffered the same fate (below)!

Back To The Past With The Original Marty McFly!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Once upon a time, in La La Land, circa 1985, a little movie called Back To Future was imagining what it would be like for a boy to travel back in time to make out with his mom and forward in time to see hover skateboards exist in 2015. (Is anyone else pissed that we are NOWHERE near that yet?!)

The movie is considered one of Michael J. Fox's most iconic flicks, but it turns out, the Fox was not the studio's first choice for the role of Marty McFly. In fact, for five weeks, Eric Stoltz played the role and even filmed some important scenes.

Don't believe?! Shun you and check out this never-before-seen footage of Eric in the role! (above)

Kind of weird, huh?
