Back to the Future

Tom Wilson may not be happy about the comparisons being made between the alternate 1985 version of Biff Tannen in Back to the Future Part II and presidential candidate Donald Trump (even though it’s Bob Gale who says the character was inspired by the real-life mogul), but he did take the time to say where his inspiration for the character came from. In a rare interview with THR about Back to the Future, Wilson says:

“A thin and sickly kid, I was pushed around and beaten up by bullies throughout my childhood, until I grew bigger than everybody and it stopped. I knew very well how they operate, and specifically the joy they take in scaring people. I’d stared them in the face so often that it wasn’t particularly challenging to do an impression.”
