This is heavy, Doc!
On Monday, Josh Gad hosted another new episode of his movie and TV reunion series “Reunited Apart”, this time bringing together the cast and crew of the 1985 classic “Back to the Future”.
Both Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd attended remotely, along with Lea Thompson, Mary Steenburgen, Elisabeth Shue, Claudia Wells, director Robert Zemeckis, writer Bob Gale, singer Huey Lewis and composer Alan Silvestri.
Plus, in an extra surprise, J.J. Abrams showed up to ask questions of the group.
Zemeckis and Gale once again shut down ideas for another “Back to the Future” sequel, but Thompson did have the perfect idea for another time travelling storyline.
“I’d like to go back to January to warn us about coronavirus,” she said.

Gad teased the reunion on social media last week, blocking out the images of all the other guests set to appear, and celebs like Kate Hudson and Joel McHale commented in anticipation of the event.
In the previous, inaugural “Reunited Apart” episode, Gad brought together the stars of the similarly Steven Spielberg-produced ’80s classic “The Goonies”.
The series is also raising funds for coronavirus relief efforts around the world.
