When you’ve been in entertainment for decades, yet are only remembered for three movies you did almost twenty years ago, a sense of humor is a must. Tom Wilson most certainly has that. The actor who played all manor of Biff Tannen, the villain in all three Back to the Future movies, makes his living these days as a stand up comedian. In addition, he’s a big fan of the parody song and his latest one hits close to home.
The Sci-Fi Convention Song tells the story of what it’s like being incredibly recognizable but not as rich as those people think. Check it out below. Read More »

It’s oddly fitting that the actor who played Biff Tannen doesn’t really talk about Back to the Future. Biff was the outcast in the films, the villain, always plotting and the butt of the joke, sometimes literally. That actor, Tom Wilson, now makes his living doing stand up comedy and music and because he gets asked about the classic trilogy so often, he’s apparently created a card he hands to people that answers all the same questions he gets asked over and over again.

In the 25 years since the release of Back to the Future, and with the recent release of the comprehensive Blu-ray set, one might think there wasn’t any video from the film series that isn’t, or hasn’t been, readily available. At this point, we’ve even seen Eric Stoltz play Marty Mcfly!
However, until now, no one had seen the full three and a half minute clip reel that runs outside of The Biff Tannen Museum in the alternative 1985 in Back to the Future Part II. Marty does look at it, and the audience gets to see a good portion of it, but who knew how much more there really was or how deep the history of Biff (Tom Wilson) really went? Well, BTTF.com has uncovered a transfer from a VHS that was saved by a fan who had ties to someone working on the film and loaded it online. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
Most people know comedian Tom Wilson as the guy who played Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future trilogy, which probably explains why he is consistently questioned about his experience on the films wherever he goes. Wilson decided to turn the answers into a song as part of his comedy act, so that it might save him time next time you catch him walking down the street and get the urge to ask him about Michael J Fox.
The video was recorded at one of Wilson’s gigs a few years back, but we’re reaching into the archives as this is a slow week for content. Watch the video now, after the jump. You can read more about Tom and his upcoming appearances on TomWilsonUSA.com.
