Despite his "retirement" he has guest starred on various television shows and also some voice acting work, most notably ''Film/StuartLittle'' and ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'', where his distinctive child-like voice adds to the generally benign nature of his characters. Some of his guest spots have him [[DisabledCharacterDisabledActor pigeon-holed as a man with an illness]], when he guested on ''Series/BostonLegal'' he had lung cancer, when he guested on ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' he had OCD and when he guested on Series/TheGoodWife he had a neurological disorder.

He started off as a TeenIdol in TheEighties, making a dual hit on both film and television as Marty [=McFly=] from the ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' trilogy (1985-1990) and Alex P. Keaton from ''Series/FamilyTies'' (1982-1989), for which he won three Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe Award. A rather popular but generally less famous role was the main character in ''Film/TeenWolf''. He also did [[TomHanksSyndrome some serious stuff]] that almost no one remembers, and he's acknowledged that he isn't an actor who can "blend" into a wide variety of roles.

* TeensAreShort: He's around 5'4", which allowed him to play teenage characters into his late twenties. The producers of ''Series/FamilyTies'' actually thought he was too short to be the son of 6'4" Michael Gross.

* {{Determinator}}: He did the first ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' film while simultaneously working full-time on ''Series/FamilyTies'', effectively carrying the show himself, since his ''Family Ties'' costar Meredith Baxter was out because she was pregnant, getting at most a few hours of sleep on most days. And then there's his battle with Parkinson's disease, originally told he'd have less than 10 years before the disease would overtake him, but more than 20 years later, is still working.

* ArtifactAlias: he added the imaginary middle initial J because there was already a Michael Fox in the union. (His real middle name is Andrew.) When Michael Fox died, SAG offered Michael J. the opportunity to change his professional name back to his real name, but by then he and the public were used to it.
