Doc Brown Is Now a Pitchman for an Argentine Electronics Retailer

You might think that you saw the last of Doc Brown as he flew off in his time travelling locomotive with his new family at the end of Back to the Future Part III. Turns out that's not the case! Everyone's favorite lovable mad scientist apparently travelled to the year 2011 at some point, avoiding Hill Valley this time, and discovered Garbarino.

The Lost Roles of 'Back to the Future'

One of the most popular movies ever made and one that seamlessly fused sci-fi and comedy, Back to the Future turned 25 just over two years ago. In honor of the film’s 27-year-and-3-month anniversary, we’re looking at some of the potential casting choices that almost happened back when Back to the Future came out two decades (plus seven years and 3 months) ago. Most movies and TV shows go through an exhaustive casting process before production begins, but Back to the Future is unique in that part of the movie was filmed with different actors in some of the main roles before the filmmakers decided it wasn’t working and [...]
