Fox, one of Hollywood's biggest stars since a seven-year run as "Alex P. Keaton" in the 80's situation comedy "Family Ties," also headlined "Spin City" from 1996-2001 and The Secret of My Success and Casualties of War. He is one of the world's foremost advocates for Parkinson's disease research and had a recurring role in the series "The Good Wife" and its follow-up "The Good Fight" last year.
Thompson first gained attention starring opposite Tom Cruise in 1983's All the Right Moves before being cast in the role as Marty's mother Lorraine (and Maggie, wife of Seamus in the third installment of the BTTF trilogy). She also played the lead role in "Caroline in the City" and "For the People" among more than 100 big and small screen credits.
Lloyd stole scene after scene in "Taxi" as "Rev. Jim Ignatowski" before roles in Star Trek III and Back to the Future lifted him to stardom. Some of his other prominent credits among more than 200 TV series and films include Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Addams Family, Duck Tales the Movie and Anastasia.
Wilson has nearly 150 films, television shows and comedy specials to his credit, showing his versatility in playing numerous characters in the BTTF trilogy, including "Biff," "Griff" and "Buford" Tannen. Fans also remember his memorable roles in "Freaks and Geeks," "Ghost Whisperer" and The Heat and voice acting spots in "SpongeBob Squarepants,"
