The Back to the Future movies are definitely favorites for anyone who grew up in the 80's and even the generations after.

Michael J Fox nailed the role of "Marty McFly" in the trilogy, but did you know he wasn't the original actor cast in the role?

The Hollywood Reporter has a fun clip of Eric playing Marty that will be on the upcoming DVD release. Eric Stoltz was five weeks into shooting the movie role when director and co-writer Robert Zemeckis made a drastic production decision - changing his lead actor.

Details of the shocking Hollywood switch and never-before-seen footage of Stoltz as McFly are part of the extras package for the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy to be released on Blu-Ray on Oct. 26.

Stolz went on to star in Some Kind of Wonderful, Mask, and Say Anything.

What do you think the Back to the Future trilogy would have been like without Michael J Fox?
