Back To The Future is my favorite film of all time, hands down. I think the first film is the best, with parts two and three following closely as one big movie.
One of the things I’ve always wondered about is why Crispin Glover (who I loved as George McFly) was not in the sequels. If you’re like me, then you will definitely want to check this out.
Syfy has a very interesting article where Crispin Glover finally opens up on some of the noted Back To The Future controversies that kept him out of the sequels and fairly silent on the matter for the last two decades.
Glover had this to say to a group of reporters at this weekend’s press junket for Hot Tub Time Machine:
“On the DVD to the Back to the Future trilogy, Bob Gale has said something that’s totally fabricated. He said I asked for twice the amount of money that Michael J. Fox asked for in the first film. In the negotiation for the second film, they offered me less than half of what any of the actors that were being asked to come back in the film — Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and Tom Wilson. They had all done studio films, and they’d made a lot more money. I was being penalized.”
Glover spoke candidly on the matter, including being ultimately glad that he was in the film and how he had a good experience working with Robert Zemeckis. He also dips into the legal action he filed when he was replaced in the sequels by an actor in “false nose, chin and cheekbones in order to fool people into believing that [he] was in the film.”
