Michael J. Fox, the first and ONLY Teen Wolf in my heart, is 50 years old. I just grew a wrinkle typing that. Luckily for you and I, the FOX still has his baby-faced good looks AND we have his vast catalogue of acting genius.
I was turned on to this article with a list of his top 20 film and TV roles.
It’s well-written and informative, but unfortunately, the author forgot his BEST and GREATEST ROLE: DENNIS BAXTER from the 1985 classic camp flick, POISON IVY!!!!!!!!
Maybe it’s because Poison Ivy went on to be the SAME title of the Drew Barrymore HOT MESS OF a movie…you know, the one where she and TOM SKERRIT make out in the rain on the hood of a car?? Don’t act like you haven’t ever seen it.
Maybe it’s because it had Jo from the Facts of Life as his straight love interest? America likes Nancy McKeon with extra diesel, no cute summer flings with Michael J. Fox, please.
True story: they dated while this movie was being shot. Sad but true story: I remember this because I was so jealous of Nancy McKeon getting to kiss Alex P. Keaton IN REAL LIFE, that every time I watched the Facts of Life, I stuck my tongue out at Jo.
Whatever the case, I urge each and every one of you to get your hands on a copy of POISON IVY (The MJFox one, not the sicko one) and watch it in honor of the Michael J. Foxiness that is Michael J. Fox.
A toast to 50 great years Alex P. Keaton! Ensure Milkshakes with Geritol Chasers for everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
