Ronald Reagan Auditions For The Role Of George McFly In Back To The Future

Ronald Reagan

Los Angeles – March 12, 1985
Director: Robert Zemeckis
Scene: Marty arrives home to find out that Biff wrecked the family car
Take 79

George: (Well) I know what you’re gonna say, son, and you’re right, you’re right. But Biff just happens to be my supervisor, and I’m afraid I’m not very good at confrontations. (Unless we’re talking about the Communists. I’m very good at dealing with the Communists. Did I mention that I’m going to tell Gorbachev to tear down that wall?)

CUT! CUT! CUT!!! Ron, I mean, Mr. President. With all due respect sir, that last part is not even in the script. For the 80th time, PLEASE STICK TO YOUR LINES! Now let’s try it one more time. Everyone take your positions. In 5…4-3-2-1. ACTION! (Get Crispin Glover on the phone.)
