Behind The Scenes With Hollywood's Grooviest Stars
Michael J. Fox and Huey Lewis on the set of "Back to the Future," 1985.
Who’s that nerd hanging out with Marty McFly? What’s that? It’s Huey Lewis!? That’s right, when it came time to shoot Back to the Future Huey Lewis didn’t just provide the songs “The Power of Love” and “Back in Time” to the film, but he also appears in an uncredited role as one of the judges for Marty McFly’s high school talent show audition.
In 2017 Lewis said that when he was approached to write songs for the movie he’d never done it before and was just winging the material. He explained:
They asked if I could write a song for the movie told them that I never wrote for film. They say that it didn’t matter and it worked out incredibly well. Who would have ever guessed that would have worked out? It was an amazing experience.
