Oh Michael J. Fox...how I love thee!That being said, if I recall, the last time he appeared on TV he was looking noticeably sick(er) - so unless he all of a sudden is doing way better - I can't imagine that his Parkinson's won't be visible...so I wonder if they are going to write that in somehow.

From stuff that I read elsewhere, Michael J Fox's character will be in a wheelchair. That will cover for a lot of his possible symptoms. As for what they will mention his disability to be, I don't know.
