Rick and Morty is a weird, sort-of parody of Back to the Future, so it only makes sense that we do everything we can to get Christopher Lloyd on the show.
Lloyd, a.k.a. Doc Brown from Back to the Future, told the Phoenix New Times in an interview that he’s a fan of Rick and Morty and would like to be on the show. This, of course, is a fantastic idea.
Lloyd told the Phoenix New Times that he’s seen a few episodes of the show and likes what he’s seen.
“I’ve seen a few episodes and I gotta tell you, I think it’s a lot of fun,” Lloyd said. “I know it’s some kind of parody of Doc and Marty.”
As some Rick and Morty fans know, Rick is based loosely on Lloyd’s character Doc Brown, a scientist involved in some wild stuff including the infamous time-traveling DeLorean. Meanwhile Morty, Rick’s grandson, is based loosely on Michael J. Fox’s Back to the Future character Marty McFly.
When asked if he’d like to be on the show, possibly playing Rick’s father, Lloyd expressed interest, saying that it would be fun.
During the interview, Lloyd also said that he would be delighted to be in a fourth Back to the Future movie, whether it’s a sequel or a reboot, as long as Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale are down. Lloyd hasn’t heard any rumblings about that happening, though, so don’t get your hopes up.
