Corey Hartman

  1. Michael J Fox, Back To The Future, 1985.     Refused by every studio in town, the now iconic role of Marty McFly was always planned for Fox. However, when his TV series, Family Ties, got in the way, his possible successors were John Cusack, Johnny Depp, C Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio and Hart – a Canadian singer who never made a movie before or since. Filming actually began with Eric Stoltz, who hadn’t got the heavy Mask out of his system. He was fired. That’s when exec producer Steven Spielberg finally brokered a deal with Ties producer Gary David Goldberg… and poor Fox worked as Alex P Keaton all day and Marty McFly all night.   Sleep? What’s that!
