Michael J Fox doesn't rule out the possibility of returning to the screen

“I might come back as an actor, if something comes up.”

Last February, the actor Back to the future, made a surprise appearance at the BAFTA ceremony to present the award for best film. Heralded by the British David Tennant as a legend, Michael Fox, aged 62, arrived in a wheelchair to thunderous applause. Nothing therefore indicated a potential return…. towards the cinema.

However, on April 4, interviewed by the American media Entertainment Tonighton the occasion of a charity event organized by the Michael J Fox foundation to finance research, and as part of Parkinson's disease awareness month, the actor who lent his features to Marty McFly declared that he would be ready to take on roles again if something were available to him:

“I could come back as an actor, if something came up where I could include my realities, my challenges, if I could find a solution.”

Suffering from Parkinson's disease, against which he has been fighting for more than 30 years, Michael J Fox retired in 2020, when he proved incapable of retaining his texts, he confided at the time to magazine Empire. He added that Tarantino's film, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywoodhad also helped him in his approach.

“I thought about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. There is a scene where the character played by Leonardo DiCaprio can no longer remember his texts. He returns to his dressing room and screams in the mirror while looking at himself. This is completely crazy. I've had times where I looked in the mirror and said to myself 'I can not do this anymore'.”

If Michael J Fox found success thanks to Back to the future released in 1985, it was first in the series Sacred Family that he is causing a sensation. Subsequently, he starred under the direction of Tim Burton in Mars Attack or that of Brian de Palma in Outrages.

During his interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor looked back on his career and his completed projects. The documentary Still: the life of Michael J Fox, which looks back on the actor's daily life, was released in May 2023 on Apple TV + and is still available.
