Hello, McFly? Eric Stoltz in his brief 'Back to the Future' role

By Jen Chaney

In not-so-breaking news from 25 years ago, Eric Stoltz was originally cast as Marty McFly in "Back to the Future."

But in pseudo-breaking news from this decade, we're finally getting a chance to see Stoltz in the role, now that footage from his five weeks on the job will appear on the upcoming 25th anniversary release of the "Back to the Future" trilogy on DVD and Blu-ray.

I'm a huge fan of Stoltz. But he definitely looks out of place peering at George McFly and making time travel plans with Doc Brown in the clip, courtesy of the Hollywood Reporter, below. Then again, it's pretty impossible for me to imagine Michael J. Fox screaming "Prank caller! Prank caller!" into a telephone receiver in "Pulp Fiction." So maybe they're even.

Here's hoping we get to see footage of Stoltz delivering some actual lines on the DVD.

Comments

I've loved Eric Stoltz since Some Kind of Wonderful, and while I would have loved to see his career take off the way MJF's did, I think he was a bit too intense and serious for this role.

I'm happy to watch him in Caprica now - huge BSG fan as well, so lucky me! He still has the same intensity and you are able to see the pain in his eyes while mourning the loss of his daughter as you did when Watts told him that she couldn't stand it if he hated her so they had to spend more time apart.

Yes, I am a *proud* geek.
