Michael J. Fox has been a beloved part of the Hollywood landscape since he drove into our hearts at 88 miles an hour (if you don’t get that reference, get off my lawn), and before that, he was making conservative girls swoon with his portrayal of Alex P. Keaton on the small screen. Now, it looks like he’s headed back there in a much-needed comeback.

Rumor has it that Fox is shopping around a comedy project based on his life, and “Arrested Development” writer Sam Laybourne is attached to it, as well as “Easy A” director Will Gluck. While Fox has had several gigs since announcing his battle with Parkinson’s Disease in 1991–stints on “The Good Wife” and “Rescue Me” were particularly well-received–his career has been rather low-key, and fans want him back.

    Yay! Can’t wait. Michael J Fox is awesome. I loved Family Ties, Spin City, and ALL of his movies. Secret of my Success was one of my favorites. And of course the Back To The Future Trilogy. That is actually a series of movies where the sequels were just as good if not better then the first.

    We love Michael J Fox! He’s a tv icon. Rooting for him to knock it outta the park.

    I’ve always liked Michael J. Fox. He is a wonderful actor. While I’m sensitive to his health issues, it is distracting to watch Michael with his disability. I probably won’t be watching his new show.

    Michael J. Fox back on prime time television, why didn’t I think of that. Spin City was a fantastic show that I think could have gone 10+ yrs with Michael at the helm, it might have even given Mash a run for its money and Two and a half men as well. ( with Charlie Sheen, not Ashton ).
