Eric Stoltz was originally hired to star in Back to the Future, and apparently the shoot was pretty far along before director Robert Zemeckis decided that Stoltz just wasn't working in the role. By various accounts Stoltz was "too serious" as Marty McFly, and wasn't clicking right with Christopher Lloyd. He was replaced by Michael J. Fox, and for many years the footage with Stoltz in the role was locked away in a vault somewhere. Today a little bit of that footage has finally turned up online.
