Fans of Fringe already know that Eric Stoltz was originally cast in Back to the Future, thanks to a scene in the show’s alternate reality featuring a movie marquee advertising a viewing of Back to the Future starring Eric Stoltz. The twin towers also still stand, in this alternate reality.
BTTF superfans like moi (it’s my ultimate favorite movie) are counting down the days until the upgraded trilogy set on blu-ray which comes out October 26, just one day after the 25th anniversary of the date when Marty journeyed back in time in 1985, drops. For five weeks in 1984, Eric Stoltz was Marty McFly and you can see the deleted scenes in the new set. Check out the video Nymag.com has posted to see poor Eric playing the part in a far more dramatic interpretation.
Can you IMAGINE BTTF without Michael J. Fox? It’d be like… the Alternate 1985. And, if Eric Stoltz’s Marty McFly met Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly would there be a time paradox that might destroy the universe?
I can’t wait to get my damn hands ON this trilogy set.
