Back to the Future Stars Where Are They Now

Some of the actors from Back to the Future have been busy in the real world. Here are the career updates of Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson, Christopher Lloyd and Tom Wilson.


Christopher Lloyd played the part of Dr. Emmett ‘Doc’ Brown, the character who turned a DeLorean car into a time machine in Back to the Future. Fans may recognize Lloyd from such classics as Clue, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and The Addams Family. But the actor has remained busy with on-screen work in recent years and has at least eight projects cooking. Lloyd has amassed an estimated $40 million in total wealth.

Besides the perfect script the trilogy's success is due to Zemeckis ever so beautiful direction and his eye for detail, and of course the great cast. Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Thomas F. Wilson and Lea Thompson, all shamelessly underrated actors, are once again brilliant. It's a REAL pity that Crispin Glover didn't return for the sequels, but as I've said before, Gale & Zemeckis did a great job writing their way around his memorable character. The only other actress that didn't come back was Claudia Wells, who played Jennifer in part one and was appropriately replaced by Elisabeth Shue here. (Source: www.imdb.com)


Now: Fox has become a credible voice on Parkinson’s research since going public with his diagnosis in 1998. In subsequent years he retired from acting, launched what is today the world’s largest nonprofit sponsor of Parkinson’s drug development and then made his acting comeback as a newscaster in NBC’s “The Michael J. Fox Show,” which ended in 2014. He also has a recurring role on CBS’ “The Good Wife.” Fox will lend his voice to the robotic dog and star of “A.R.C.H.I.E.,” a live-action/CG hybrid kids movie coming soon.

Back to the Future is a 1985 American science fiction film directed by Robert Zemeckis. Written by Zemeckis and Bob Gale, it stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover, and Thomas F. Wilson. Set in 1985, the story follows Marty McFly (Fox), a teenager accidentally sent back to 1955 in a time-traveling DeLorean automobile built by his eccentric scientist friend Doctor Emmett "Doc" Brown (Lloyd). Trapped in the past, Marty inadvertently prevents his future parents' meeting—threatening his existence—and is forced to reconcile the pair and somehow get back to the future.
