A few weeks ago, Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) guest starred on an episode of Fringe. He played Walter’s (John Noble) musical hero. He and Noble both spoke with the press, not only about that episode and character, but the show and their careers in general.
Set in Boston, the FBI’s Fringe Division was introduced when Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) enlisted institutionalized “fringe” scientist Walter Bishop (Noble) and his globe-trotting, jack-of-all-trades son, Peter (Joshua Jackson), to help in the investigation of an airline disaster that defied human logic.
After the defining case was solved and revealed to be one of a series of unusual incidents linked together, the unlikely trio, supervised by Special Agent Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick) and assisted by Junior Agent Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole) was formed.
Check out the great questions and answers from the interview!
John, on whether or not he was excited about having Christopher on as his musical hero

We had an amazing time together these two old guys reminiscing and getting the music back up again. It was the best fun.
