An interview with Michael J Fox

Michael J Fox was selected by the late great James Cagney to play the song and dance man, gangster and one of the first presidents of the Screen Actors Guild in his life story. Before that film could happen, Fox fell ill. It is debilitating disease, yet he works on. He spoke with NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday. If you listen you will hear the disability he deals with every day.

While the interview does deal with his Parkinson's disease, he also talks about the need for education (he has a GED instead of a high school diploma), being young and starving in Los Angeles, what it takes to make it in the business, and what the business can do to you and for you.

The best summary of why you sould listen to this interview comes from an NPR listener:
"By the time this interview was over, I was in tears. Michael's voice,quietly shaking and breathless broke my heart, as images of him as a young actor flickered through my thoughts. His bravery, strength, and willingness to share his trials, instead of hide them, is a lesson for all of us in what makes a truly great and giving soul."

Stage Actor who began career in "Lord of the Flies" gone at 62.

He was 62
