taken from cracked.com:

Quote
When young Michael Andrew Fox tried to register at the Screen Actor's Guild as Michael Fox, he found out someone had beaten him to it by about 30 years. There was a prolific veteran actor of the same name, with hundreds of film and TV roles under his belt. The Guild doesn't allow duplicates, to avoid confusion between actors.

So, the future Marty McFly stuck the letter "J" in there. But the other Michael Fox guy? He debuted in the mid-50s, in the same era Back to the Future is set. In other words, if there hadn't been a Michael Fox in the 50s, Michael J. Fox wouldn't exist--which is exactly like the plot of the first movie.

Wait, it Gets Weirder:

When Marty travels to 1955, his father George McFly mentions being a huge fan of a show called Science Fiction Theatre, a knowledge his son uses to manipulate him into porking his mother. The show was most likely chosen because they needed to establish George as a huge nerd who had no chance of ever sleeping with anyone, and Star Trek wasn't around at the time.

But get this: the original Michael Fox played several roles in that same show, on the exact same year. Another episode, aired in 1955, featured a suburban couple finding out that their neighbors are time travelers from the future, hiding in the present of 1955--which is sort of like the plot of Back to the Future only seen from the opposite perspective.

Also Leah Thompson's divorced mother married Michael J. Fox's widowed father, making them real life brother and sister! Plus, Christopher Lloyd really did invent a working hover board, but the original patent was held by one Rev. Jim Ignatowski of Flushing NY. Cheers

I wonder if Michael J. ever porked Leah on the set?  That would be sort of incest by association or something.

I actually became infatuated with her through the movie Space Camp (1986), oddly enough, and not BTTF. It was not long-lasting, but pretty intense. There was a girl that I chased after like crazy who was the spitting image of Leah Thompson, and I'm sure my infatuation had a lot to do with it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
