Marty McFly’s Original Girlfriend Goes Back to the Future



Michael J. Fox wasn’t supposed to be Marty McFly. The Back to the Future role originally belonged to Eric Stoltz, a hot young actor who got booted from the movie after weeks of footage were shot.

Stoltz wasn’t the only loser in this Hollywood story: Melora Hardin, the actress originally hired to play the skateboarding protagonist’s girlfriend, also lost the Back to the Future gig when Stoltz got the hook.
