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.

  1. Some of the greatest movies of my youth. I never get tired of watching them either. Awesome to see everyone together again too. Also, its worth mentioning that Michael J. Fox IMO has become one of the most inspiring people dealing with adversity. So humble as well. Stand up guy.
