Bi-George, McFly

I keep forgetting that Crispin Glover didn’t play George McFly in Back to the Future II and III  

But who did?  

Someone did

That someone is… 

Jeffrey Weissman!!!!!!!!


here’s what he said about his experience with BTTF

which is a muss read for any BTFF fan…

I was honored to be a part of them, and yet it was often uncomfortable. During the casting process I was kept in the dark. I was told that I was up for being a photo double.  The make up man, Ken Chase (not the director nor the casting agents) told me that Crispin Glover was not returning to do the sequels, and that I would be playing the role… when I told my agents this, they didn’t really believe it and fight for good money or good billing for me

I ended up negotiating my shared title card with the director on the set, much to the dismay of the producers

I had not been included in any readings or rehearsals.  I was even cut out of the making of the Trilogy’s documentary.  The story was that the producers couldn’t work out their problems with Crispin – he apparently wanted script approval and a million dollars.  Because he had been a pain to work with on the first film with unusual demands and eccentric behavior, they wrote his part smaller and did things like having 77 year old George hung upside down to torture him, which I ended up having to endure in the McFly home of the future

They needed to have Crispin to recreate scenes believably for the sequels to work. When I first came on the set as young 17-year-old George, made up in prosthetics to look like Crispin, Michael J. Fox looked at me and said, “Oh man, Crispin’s not gonna like this!”, which made me feel like a scab worker

Eventually I got along alright with Michael and others like Billy Zane on and off the set, but I was rarely referred to as Jeffrey — Robert Zemekis and Lea Thompson would call me Crispin, which was a bit uncomfortable

I had worked with Crispin on a project at American Film Institute (AFI) early in the 1980’s and considered him a good actor. When I heard I was up to be his photo double, I called him to see if he remembered me and ask if he would say a good word for me as his stand in so I could get the job to help pay for my recently-born second son.  He didn’t call me back until he wanted to sue Universal for my work

Apparently my presence in the movie was kept a secret so as not to call attention to the mistake the producers made in trying to use Crispin’s likeness without paying him. Things started going terribly wrong – I had the plug pulled on a 10-city promotional tour for Universal, Florida.  I wasn’t allowed to promote myself on the film, and I was put off by the producer’s office on requests for my footage, among other promises, such as having a part in part III without the heavy makeup

As things would have it, Crispin contacted me and told me a sob story of how he felt abused on the first film and how they were swindling him by using his likeness and only paying him scale for a few days of re-use footage from the first film

Feeling compassion for him, I inadvertently gave him and his attorney fuel for their fire with stories of how Steven Speilberg came up to me during shooting and said, “So Crispin, I see you got your million dollars after all.”  Crispin’s suit named John Doe 1-100 as defendants, where he didn’t have to name all of the persons he was suing, and I think that drove the producers, director and the Universal attorneys crazy, so Universal ended settling out of court for $765,000

Crispin’s attorney revealed during a deposition that we had met, so Universal had me blacklisted.  I learned about the blacklisting when I was specifically excluded on a casting call for an episode of a television show they produced.  It was bad, it turned my life upside down.  I ended up going into avoidance behavior and having a nervous breakdown over the shock, and that resulted in the break up of my first marriage

bless you Jeffrey Weissman, for doing the impossible, by acting like another actor and how they acted, playing one of the most iconic of iconic characters, but so well that no one will even notice or care [or apparently remember anything] about you.  seriously, you are amazing, and thank you.  it’s not your fault you’re not Crispin Glover


Brolin With The Homeboys

Men In Black 3
Third Is The Word
Official Website | Trailers & Mo
PG-13 | 106 min

No one usually asks for thirds, but that never stopped Hollywood from serving triple helpings of anything that will automatically bring in the bucks.  You can’t fault the cash grab of a third Men In Black, with all the principal players in place, but is this something people really need?  Turns out we do.  Apparently there’s more to the relationship of Agent J and K than any of us could have ever imagined, which makes Men In Black 3 not only watchable, but totally watchable!!!  IT’S TRUE!!!

MiB3 starts off with the usual inane silliness of J & K hunting down gross aliens and then returning to their stark white offices to do office stuff, but then things get more interesting.  Main bad guy alien Jemaine Clement jumps into the past with aims of maiming the man (Tommy Lee Jones) who done him wrong, so Will Smith has no choice but to follow him back in time so things don’t go bad in the future!!!  Fish out of waterness ensues, Mad Men clothes are sported, and Michael Stuhlbarg acts weirderer than his screen brother Richard Kind did in A Serious Man  

This means Tommy Lee Jones is younger, and Josh Brolin brilliantly plays/imitates him as young version of Tommy Lee Jones.  Genius!  Will Smith imitates himself and it’s all basically juss a MiB movie that takes place in the 60s.  So far, so passable.  BUT then things get really really interesting!  They do!  Not gonna say how or why, but it comes at the end, and makes the whole thing well worth sitting thru.  Even if we have to endure the brief presence of toothy Alice Eve and her toothy teeth, pretending to be a younger Emma Thompson.  What is it about Alice Eve?  Why is she becoming a go to actress? Does she have dirty pictures of every studio head in Hollywood?  Or do these studio heads have a teeth fetish?

moral of the story – we didn’t need it, no one really asked for it, but as third movies go, Barry Sonnenfeld semi-sorta has us asking for more!  how is this possible? these movies are really nuttin but stupid fun.  But #3 is more than stupid fun.  WHY?  we’ll tell you why – this movie ends up having more heart than Mola Ram’s hands done does in a year!!  AND THAT’S A LOT OF HEARTSES!!!

Warhol of Fame: it was the 60s, so of course Andy Warhol makes an appearance in the flick, with the help of Bill Hader.  Below is our movie Warhol of Famers who have admirably donned the leather jacket, sunglasses and white wig, including new member Hader

watch Guy Pearce + Jared Harris + David Bowie + Crispin Glover pop art
