Michael J. Fox birthday

Posted on

Michael

Yes, just typing that headline made me want to build a time machine out of a DeLorean and shave a decade or so off my own age. But I also feel hopeful, because Michael J. Fox is as completely awesome and lovable today as when we first fell for him as Family Ties‘ Alex P. Keaton — just check out his fantastic turns on The Good Wife, or Rescue Me, or later this summer on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Though it’s an extremely tough choice, my favorite Michael J. Fox role has always been Ben Stone in the not-on-cable-enough 1991 comedy Doc Hollywood. That said, Alex P. Keaton will always remain the only Republican I could ever love. Check out some classic MJF moments after the jump.
