Tom Wilson

We all know Tom Wilson for playing Biff in all 3 BTTF movies plus he reprised the role for the now deceased BTTF ride and the animated series but I was wondering, do you think TellTale could pull it off and actually get him to voice Biff again?

The reason why I ask is cause of recent years, Wilson has been distancing himself from the series, he won't sign memorabilia, he doesn't like been asked questions about it, he admitted in an interview years ago he was embarrased about his role which is a real shame cause I don't understand why?

Some say its cause hes afraid of typecasting but to be honest he is been typecast in a way cause he does a lot of voiceover work and most of the characters he plays are like bully types very much like Biff, I've seen this a lot on Spongebob Squarepants when he voices an episode.

    Bob Gale stated in an interview that the 1st episode would be out in early November
    "I think they're looking towards the end of October, beginning of November to release the first level." - This is not a confirmation of any release schedule. In fact, it's Bob Gale making assumptions. Also, at PAX, the original, non-commital time frame "this winter" was repeatedly stated and confirmed by Dennis Lenart from TTG.

    Weren't we talking about Tom Wilson just now?

    On-topic:

    I'm checking Tom's blog every day, but it's still the old but fabulous "Voice over" video (which I could watch three times a day).

    Actually, it would be great if no more announcements were made concerning voices, and then, with the first episode, we'd wonder where Biff is... and in the last stages of episode 1, we'd have a great surprising Biff introduction with Tom Wilson's voice. Wouldn't that be great?

    Triple-post, uh-oh. Nonetheless:

    Tom finally has a new video up! Nothing about the BTTF game, although the words "Hello McFly" are uttered at a certain point... but see for yourself. ;)

    Haha, the face of Tom Wilson was brilliant when the guy said: "Hello McFly"

    Really makes me doubt we'll see him doing any voice cast for BttF adventure game.
    I'm still hoping he'll do it though.
  • O_o

    Kinda hard to believe he's pesting about the role, I personally find it the most enjoying of the Trilogy!

    IMHO to find him in TTG BTTF would be epic!

    ...and welcome to the forums, ionreflex! ;)
  • Sorry to hear that Tom is now so ambivalent about his BTTF roles. He was great, as he was in the Wing Commander games.
  • I emailed Tom Wilson to thank him for allowing his likeliness in the game. Don't know if he really appreciates that :D
  • He likely has no idea. The merch/likeness rights are probably all in Universal's hands. :p

    MJF was different as he specifically didn't let Universal get his likeness rights when he signed the movie contracts. And if Telltale did indeed asked Lloyd for his likeness, it was probably more out of courtesy than any legal obligation.
