The Fading “Back to the Future” Family Photo…With Eric Stoltz

I am loving all of the Back to the Future hype surrounding the 25th anniversary special-edition DVD, which includes the near-mythical footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly, before he was abruptly recast and replaced with Michael J. Fox. (And Caprica was just cancelled – sometimes it’s hard being Eric Stoltz).

Anyway, this has been floating around the Internet: it’s the fading family photo from the movie that Marty carries around to gauge how much time he has left to get back home. But with Eric Stoltz. Who, ironically, doesn’t actually fade away at all.

From the middle of nowhere in the Pacific Northwest, I contribute to the Retroist, write for trivia publications, and blog about music in a humorous fashion. I feel about "Back to the Future" the way you feel about "Star Wars." Also, I'm married and have a child (sorry ladies, orphans).
