Cool Videos: Watch Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly in Back to the Future outtakes!
By now, most movie buffs know that Eric Stoltz was originally cast as Marty McFly in BACK TO THE FUTURE and had actually completed about a month of filming before being recast with Michael J. Fox. But up until this point we had never seen any footage from Stoltz in the film (there were a few photos but that was about it). But Stoltz generously gave his approval for footage from his work to appear on the upcoming BTTF Blu-ray.
The below clip is a look at never-before-seen footage from BACK TO THE FUTURE showing Stoltz in a number of classic scenes from the film. It's just an excerpt from a documentary on the making of the film and sadly doesn't feature any spoken dialogue. I'd be curious to see exactly how Stoltz's interpretation of Marty was so different than Fox's (Zemeckis has said that as talented an actor as Stoltz is, he just wasn't getting the laughs from his delivery).
Check out the clip below and expect much more when the Blu-ray is released later this month.
