Watch Now: Footage Of Eric Stoltz As Marty McFly In ‘Back To The Future’

For those of you who aren’t aware — yes, before Michael J. Fox became the iconic Marty McFly in Back to the Future, the role belonged to Pulp Fiction and Caprica star Eric Stoltz.

Fox was wanted for the role all along, but with previous commitments to Family Ties, he simply was unable to take the job. Because of this, Stoltz was cast and even took part in five weeks of shooting. Ultimately, director Robert Zemeckis realized that while Stoltz was doing a great job, he wasn’t delivering the subtle humor that was so crucial for the Marty character, and the decision was made to go back and re-shoot all of the scenes with a new actor. Thankfully for us, they were able to work out a way to score Michael J. Fox after all.

Many geeks have known all of this stuff for years now, and we’ve even seen plenty of images of Stoltz as Marty, but we’ve never actually seen him in action…until now! For the 25th anniversary celebration and the release of the Back To The Future Trilogy Blu-ray Edition, a small clip from one of the special features talks a little about this monumental decision in cinematic history, while giving us a peek at footage of the actor in character.

Be sure to hit 88 and jump over to the other side to check out Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly now!
