Michael J. Fox Career

Fox’s first roles in full-length motion pictures were in the films Midnight Madness (1980) and Class of 1984 (1982), in both of which he was credited as Michael Fox. Soon after that, he started playing the role of “Young Republican” Alex P. Keaton on the NBC sitcom Family Ties, which ran for seven seasons from 1982 until 1989.

Fox revealed that he discussed the position at a payphone located at Pioneer Chicken during an interview that took place in April 2014 with Jimmy Fallon. Only because Matthew Broderick was unable to fulfill his obligations did he get the part. Family Ties had been offered to a television network using the pitch “Hip parents, square kids”  and the parents were originally planned to be the major characters in the show.

Despite this, the reception that Fox’s performance received was so favorable that, beginning with the fourth episode, his character became the primary focus of the show. One-third of the homes in the United States watched each new episode of Family Ties when it was at the height of its popularity.The television series Family Ties brought home three Emmy Awards for Fox in 1986, 1987, and 1988. In 1989, he was honored with a Golden Globe Award.

In the 1985 film Back to the Future, Eric Stoltz’s role of Marty McFly, a teenager who is sent back in time from 1985 to 1955 by accident, was played by Michael J. Fox, who replaced Stoltz in the role in January of that year.

Gary David Goldberg, the creator of Family Ties, on which Fox was working at the time, refused to allow Robert Zemeckis even to approach Fox because he believed that the show needed Fox’s character Alex Keaton to carry the show in the absence of Meredith Baxter, who was on maternity leave at the time.

Robert Zemeckis initially wanted Fox to play Marty, but Gary David Goldberg, the creator of Family Ties, refused to allow Robert Zemeckis even to approach Fox. Stoltz was given the role, and production on Back to the Future had already begun, but Zemeckis believed that Stoltz was not producing the kind of performance that was appropriate for the humor that was involved.
