In 1985, "Marty McFly", with the help of "Doc Brown's" time machine, travels to the year 1955. There, he meets his parents and must ensure that the two come together so that he will exist in the future!

Fox was highly successful starring on shows like Greedy or The American President. Since 1991, Fox suffers from Parkinson's disease. Nevertheless, he‘s still acting and had a great recurring role on the CBS hit show The Good Wife.

In this scene, "Marty McFly" has already travelled to 1955 and meets his father, "George McFly", played by Crispin Glover. "Marty" must now help "George" win "Lorraine's" heart.
After Back To The Future, the actor was mostly featured in independent productions. Many certainly still know him from the film Charlie's Angels.
Ever since they were kids, if was "Biff Tannen's" job to make the shy "George McFly's" life a living hell. He is in love with "Lorraine" and is doing everything possible to prevent "Marty's" matchmaking.
Thomas F. Wilson had his biggest success with Back To The Future and played guest roles on TV series, such as Ghost Whisperer. In addition, he has worked as a voice actor.
Claudia Wells plays "Jennifer Parker", "Marty's" girlfriend in 1985. The pretty actress would have been in the two sequels as well, but her mother was diagnosed with cancer, so she opted out of the role and was then replaced by Elisabeth Shue.
Michael J. Fox as "Marty McFly" is probably one the most popular eighties movie characters. Fox is still very much involved with acting and graces the red carpet regularly. But what about the rest of the Back To The Future cast? Find out here!
