Yesterday, the cast of Back to the Future gathered for a press event to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the BTTF films (and the Blu-ray release). By coincidence, I was wondering how the film affected Michael J. Fox’s popularity, even though I though he was already on top of the world with Family Ties. In this clip from the Q&A, Fox sets the record straight.
Take the jump for more bits from the event.
