* DawsonCasting: He was 23 playing 17 year old Marty [=McFly=], and due to his short stature and youthful face has almost never played a character the same age. In ''SpinCity'' Michael Flaherty was established as just turning 30 just as Fox was approaching 40.

He also appeared as himself in his prime time special ''Michael J. Fox: Adventures of an Incurable Optimist (A Personal Journey of Hope)'' in May 2009. He made a surprise appearance at the closing ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics, where he declared [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming everyone attending to be honorary Canadians]] - [[CrowningMomentOfFunny which he then claims means that]] [[FridgeBrilliance Canada won every gold medal of the games]]!

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.
