From Z96.3FM: Before “Back to the Future” Michael J. Fox: I almost gave up on acting

Michael J. Fox would have been a fish boy if it hadn’t been for Back to the Future.

The 54-year-old actor played Marty McFly in the iconic 1985 film. Before landing the role, Michael was still trying to find his feet as a 24-year-old actor, and felt like it was only a matter of time before he was back in a regular job.

“I was thinking of working on the fish dock or joining the military like my dad.

The nadir and the peak of my career happened at the same time.”
