Christopher Lloyd met Michael J. Fox at the annual charity Poker Night event for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
"Wait a minute, Doc. Are you telling me you built a time machine..." It's 35 years since Michael J. Fox uttered the iconic line to Christopher Lloyd in the movie Back to The Future. The duo was reunited at Fox's charity event and clearly their bond hasn't been weathered by time. Fox and Lloyd reprised their roles in the two sequels during the 80s, playing time-travelers Marty McFly and Emmett "Doc" Brown. The duo went to become synonymous with the series of films. Christopher Lloyd attended an annual charity Poker Night event organized for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. The photos of the duo meeting up went viral on Instagram and it certainly felt like they went back in time on the DeLorean. Christopher Lloyd posted the image of them at the event with a caption referring their movie: Going 88mph for the @michaeljfoxorg Poker Night. Michael J. Fox, 58, posted the image writing, he was "all in" for Poker night with Lloyd, reported MovieWeb.
In the original, Michael J. Fox starred as a teenager Marty McFly, who accidentally travels back in time from 1985 to 1955, where he meets his future parents and also becomes his mother's romantic interest. Christopher Lloyd played the eccentric scientist Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown, the inventor of the time-traveling DeLorean automobile. Eventually, Doc helps Marty repair history and return to 1985. The movie was highly acclaimed and did spectacularly at the box office, being the highest grosser that year. The movie also featured performances from Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson, and Tom Wilson. It's unlikely we'll ever get to see a fourth installment of the series but it was certainly heartwarming for the fans to see the duo hangout.
After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s at just 29 years old in 1991, the actor launched the foundation in 2000. He talked about being diagnosed with the disease in his earlier Memoirs, Lucky Man and Always Looking Up. Earlier this week, Michael J. Fox also announced his fourth book, titled No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality. He said the book would hit the stores this November and will feature stories and notes on health, aging, and family ties. "What’s exciting for me is that this new book is less memoir and more perspective — I consider questions I believe we all have about our lives,” Fox told PEOPLE. “Who am I? Where am I? Where am I going? I don’t want to give anything away, but I think I’ve figured it out.” In an interview from 2006, he credited his family for their support. Fox has been married to Tracy Pollan for over 30 years. The couple share 3 kids. “I’m so blessed with a great family, and I’ve had success in my career. I feel this is a really unique opportunity for me to help out and try to effect change,” he said.
His new book's description reads: In No Time Like the Future, [Fox] reassess this outlook, while sharing stories and observations about illness and health, aging, the strength of family and friends, and how our perceptions about time affect the way we approach mortality. Flourished with Mr. Fox’s trademark sense of humor, he provides a vehicle for reflection about our lives, our loves, and our losses.
