Original Marty McFly Eric Stoltz Made It Into the Theatrical Version of Back to the Future After All

File under: this is heavy.

It’s no secret that Eric Stoltz was originally cast in Back to the Future and filmed a bunch of the movie before he was eventually replaced by first-choice Michael J. Fox. What you may not know is that a shot with Stoltz as Marty McFly still made it into the final film, which you can see in the video above.
