Tell me a secret, and I promise I'll tell the world.

Eric Stoltz was the original Marty McFly on Back to the Future – not Michael J. Fox

You’ve read it, you heard it. It doesn’t matter. It is true and if you don’t believe it, Eric Stoltz said that he will release footage of the Back to the Future film with him as Marty McFly (the part made famous by Michael J. Fox in the Back to the Future Series).

A clip, released by, the co-writer of Back to the Future said that Eric Stoltz played the role of Marty McFly for five weeks until he was replaced. According the Robert Zemeckis, the movie director of the film, “this horrific decision; it was heartbreaking for everybody. He’s a magnificent actor but his comic sensibilities were very different from what I had written with Bob [Gale], he and I were never able to make that work.”

Who do you think played it best?
