Tom Wilson, the guy who played bully Biff Tannen in the “Back to the Future” movies, has come up with a nifty way to handle the most-asked fan questions about the beloved trilogy: by writing all the answers down on a postcard.
Although it’s been 22 years since the last film was in theaters, Wilson’s still fielding queries about what it was like to work with Michael J. Fox (“Michael J. Fox is nice. I’m not in close contact with him”), hoverboard stories (“The hoverboards didn’t really fly, we were hanging by wires from a cane”) and what the maure was made of (“The manure was made from peat moss, cork, dirt and a food agent that made it sticky”).
Oh, and what about Biff’s famous catchphrases? “Among the many improvisations on set, I termed the coin ‘butthead,’ as well as ‘Make like a tree, and get out of here.'”
Wilson, whose other credits include “The Informant!” and “Action Jackson,” says he created the FAQ because “Nobody had any idea that the movies would become a cultural touchstone, but the themes of friendship and adventure moved the audience so powerfully that I felt the need to create this postcard as a timesaver.”
