Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd Returned as “Back to the Future’s” Marty and Doc on “Kimmel”

They're Disappointed in the Future

Yesterday was finally the day that Marty McFly came to the future in Back to the Future Part II. In honor of “Back to the Future Day” Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd showed up on Jimmy Kimmel Live in character as Marty McFly and Doc Brown. They arrived in the DeLorean onstage and were surprised to learn that we didn’t have flying cars or hoverboards and decide they might be in an alternate 2015. Watch below as they interact with Kimmel and look out for a Huey Lewis cameo and a Donald Trump joke and stick with it until the end for one last joke. It could be the last time we ever see Fox and Lloyd as Marty and Doc together.

Michael J. Fox also stuck around to be interviewed as his real self about Back to the Future, which is also celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, and watch part of that interview below too. He showed up in Nike power-laces shoes from Back to the Future Part II. The episode, which is part of Kimmel’s week of shows in Brooklyn, also featured Bernie Sanders and Big Grams. Alas the Cubs lost to the Mets last night, meaning the Back to the Future Part II prediction that they’ll win the World Series in 2015 after not having won since 1908 won’t come true (and they even lost on the day they were predicted to win). Oh well.

Also, yesterday we posted brand new interviews with Back to the Future co-creator/co-writer/producer Bob Gale, actress Lea Thompson (who played Marty’s mother Lorraine McFly), and actress Claudia Wells (who played Marty’s girlfriend Jennifer Parker). Each reflected on their experiences making Back to the Future, working with the rest of the cast (including Michael J. Fox and Crispin Glover), and how the future didn’t quite turn out the way they envisioned it would. Links to those interviews are below again.
