Little known fact: Crispin Glover refused to be in Back to the Future 2. So director Robert Zemeckis hired a doppelgänger, put him in makeup, and used old clips from Glover's past work on set to fill in any holes. Needless to say, that pissed off the actor (who sued). And now, many years later Glover is elaborating…
We talked to Crispin Glover about going back in time 25 years for Hot Tub Time Machine, a quarter century after Back To The Future premiered. And he told us about playing Nikola Tesla's drunken nemesis, Thomas Edison.
Hot Tub Time Machine has a killer cast, including John Cusack, Chevy Chase, and Rob Corddry, and a weird premise about traveling back to your R-rated party-boy heyday. The one thing it didn't have, according to Cusack? A script.
