Creator: Christopher Lloyd
Christopher Lloyd (October 22, 1938-) is an American character actor best known for his "quirky" roles as "Reverend" Jim Ignatowski on the 1970's TV series Taxi, Dr. Emmett Lathrop Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy, and Uncle Fester in The Addams Family theatrical films. Also played the evil Judge Doom in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Most of Lloyd's recent roles have been guest starring appearances or minor parts most likely due to his age. In contrast to many of his onscreen characters, Lloyd is quiet and reserved in real life and rarely gives interviews.He is not to be confused with an Executive Producer on Frasier and Modern Family with the same name.Still Needs a Better Description.
