Back to the Original - Silent Rogue
Remember that old 1985 movie about the teenager that travels through time, makes out with his mom, and help his dad find some confidence while changing his life for the better? It was called "Back to the Future," and it starred Michael J. Fox as the pseudo apprentice of Doc Brown. Well, you'd be surprised to learn that Michael J. Fox was not the first choice actor for the film. Spielberg and Zemeckis had shot five weeks worth of footage with Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly. Unfortunately, despite his acting ability, the comedic sense the filmmakers were looking for did not translate with Stoltz. That was when Fox was found to replace him as lead actor. Footage of the original scenes with Stoltz was released with the "Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy" on blu-ray last month. Take a short glimpse at the footage in the video excerpt from the special features below:
