There are so many things we may not know about one of the most familiar faces in Hollywood – Michael J. Fox. For instance, did you know that Fox, who was born in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, to William and Phyllis Fox in 1961, adopted the “J” as his
middle name (his real middle name is Andrew) in honor of his favorite character actor, Michael J. Pollard?
In an interview, he said he tried to register with the Screen Actors Guild as “Michael Fox” but the name was already taken. So, he replaced the “A” with a “J” because he “didn’t want the teen magazines to use headlines such as “Michael A. Fox!”
