Back to the Future comic book reinstates Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly



I'm not sure I can say it any more clearly than the headline does: A Back to the Future comic book has, yes, reinstated Eric Stoltz (yeah, the guy from Mask) as Marty McFly. Stoltz was originally cast in the part and even played Marty for the first four weeks of filming. But eventually the filmmakers decided Eric wasn't the right Marty, and reshot the scenes with Michael J. Fox.

ANYHOO ... Slashfilm reports that David Guy Levy‘s comic Back to Back to the Future has gone the other way and features Stoltz as the animated McFly.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Levy says he's never met Stoltz, but called both him and Fox "talented actors." After consulting with attorneys about parody and fair use law, Levy went to work on the comic book. Go to this link to download an issue for free.
