'The Michael J. Fox Show' Episode 10: Candice Bergen and Charles Grodin come to a Henry family 'Thanksgiving'

Michael J. Fox has new television "parents," and they probably look pretty familiar.Almost 40 years after they starred in the movie "11 Harrowhouse," Candice Bergen and Charles Grodinreunited as Beth and Steve Henry in "Thanksgiving," Thursday's (Nov. 21) seasonal episode of NBC's "The Michael J. Fox Show." And the couple's presence made things ... well, interesting for Mike (Fox) and others.His sister Leigh (Katie Finneran) is especially on edge, feeling she's the target of her mother's constant criticism. To save humiliation, she never revealed she didn't go to Portland with a boyfriend as planned, since they'd broken up before the move -- and she decides to fly to Atlanta before her parents arrive.Oops: The parents show up six hours earlier than scheduled. The bear hug Mike gets from his overenthusiastic dad is offset by his more reserved mom's dry greeting to Leigh (Katie Finneran), who doesn't quite make it as she tries to sneak out... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/the-michael-j-fox-show-episode-10-candice-bergen-and-charles-grodin-come-to-a-henry-family-thanksgiv.html

'The Michael J. Fox Show': Candice Bergen and Charles Grodin visit for 'Thanksgiving'

Guess who's coming to Thanksgiving dinner?Candice Bergen and Charles Grodin, at least in terms of "The Michael J. Fox Show." The veteran performers reunite -- long after being teamed in the 1974 crime-caper movie "11 Harrowhouse" -- as Mike's (Fox) parents in Thursday's (Nov. 21) episode of the NBC sitcom, appropriately titled "Thanksgiving."The holiday visit doesn't exactly run smoothly: While TV newsman Mike is trying to make the sort of connection he's never had with his dad, sister Leigh (Katie Finneran) has ongoing issues with Mom, who's something of a control freak."I think that's a tactful way of putting it," Bergen tells Zap2it. Famous for playing a TV journalist herself on"Murphy Brown," she had fun portraying Mike's mother "after I kind of found my way, but she's the mother from hell, basically.

'The Michael J. Fox Show': Christopher Lloyd reunites with his 'Back to the Future' co-star

Marty McFly and Doc Brown are getting together again.Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd scored three box-office hits with the "Back to the Future" movies. A tweet sent Tuesday (Nov. 19) by Fox indicates a reunion is imminent: Lloyd is about to do a guest shot on the Thursday NBC sitcom "The Michael J. Fox Show."In response to the query, "Do you and Christopher Lloyd still hang out/keep in touch?," Fox replied: "Newsflash: He's shooting next week's episode."That story casts Lloyd as a high-school principal who's the boss of teacher Annie (Betsy Brandt), wife of TV newsman Mike Henry (Fox). Since the new character is described as an "eccentric," he's certainly in line with other Lloyd roles -- including that of Reverend Jim Ignatowski on "Taxi," which earned the actor two Emmy Awards.Lloyd's stint makes another notable guest star for Fox's current series, which has Candice Bergen and Charles Grodin as his parents in a... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/the-michael-j-fox-show-christopher-lloyd-reunites-with-his-back-to-the-future-costar.html
