Never-before-seen footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly in Back To The Future

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Back To The Future, we've got never-before-seen footage of original star Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly. Plus Robert Zemeckis, Steven Spielberg and Bob Gale all explaining why they replaced him with Michael J. Fox.

Don't get us wrong, we're Fox fans through-and-through, but it's exceptionally shocking how perfect Eric Stoltz looks in these scenes! But producers and directors are right, this would have been a much more somber franchise with Stoltz at the wheel of the DeLorean.

This clip is just a snippet from the Back To The Future 25th Anniversary trilogy DVD and Blu-Ray box set, which comes out on October 26, 2010.

Wow.

I just can't (nor want to, really) begin to imagine being replaced after being selected for a job and THEN the 'replacement' riding the wave of BO history with a multi-billion dollar hit that became a franchise.

I would not have blamed Stoltz if he had quit acting or got physically ill everytime he saw "Back to Future" in all it's incarnations.

My respect for from him as a professional- as a person- has risen significantly.
