Crispin Glover Biography

Crispin Hellion Glover was born on April 20, 1964, is an American movie actor, director and screenwriter, avant-garde musician and self-published author. Glover is well-known for portraying eccentric people on screen such as George McFly in Back to the Future, Layne in River’s Edge, unfriendly recluse Rubin Farr in Rubin and Ed, the “Creepy Thin Man” in the big screen adaptation of Charlie’s Angels, Willard Stiles in Willard, & The Knave of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland, among others. In the late 1980s Glover started his company, Volcanic Eruptions, which issues his books and also serves as the production company of Glover’s films, What Is It? & It is Fine. Everything is Fine!. Glover tours with those films & plans on filming more at the property he owns in the Czech Republic. His breakout role was as George McFly in Robert Zemeckis’s Back to the Future, an world-wide box office  success following its release in 1985. Glover did not, however, come to an agreement with the producers to appear in the sequels. Zemeckis used some previously filmed footage of Glover from the first movie, & inter-spliced new footage of Jeffrey Weissman  who was introduced using prosthetics including a false chin nose and cheekbones various obfuscating methods to play the role of George McFly  in the sequel. Displeased with putting another actor in make-up to make that actor look like him, Glover then sued the producers (including Steven Spielberg) on the grounds that the producers did not own Crispin Glover’s likeness. Because of Glover’s lawsuit, there are now clauses in The Screen Actors Guild  (TV/cinema performer labor union) collective bargaining agreements to the effect that producers and actors are not able to do such things. According to Glover, many people still believe he was in the sequel, also.

Crispin Glover Bio

He has continued to play exceedingly eccentric types, e.g., playing Andy Warhol in Oliver Stone’s The Doors in 1991, as well as the title characters in Bartleby (2001) and Willard (2003). He got mainstream attention as the “Creepy Thin Man” in the Charlie’s Angels films; the character had initially been cast as a speaking role, but Glover, not noting that the lines as written were exposition, convinced the producers to eliminate the lines to create a darker image for the character. Glover narrated the special feature commentary for the DVD of Werner Herzog’s Even Dwarfs Started Small & Fata Morgana. Glover starred in the 2007 movie Beowulf as the monster Grendel, playing the part via performance capture technology. The movie was Glover’s first collaboration with director Robert Zemeckis since the original Back to the Future movie. Glover plays the voice of 6 in the movie 9 directed by Shane Acker, and produced by Tim Burton & Timur Bekmambetov. Glover appeared in the 2010 Tim Burton cinema Alice in Wonderland as the Knave of Hearts, alongside Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter & Anne Hathaway. Glover also came out in the 2010 motion picture Hot Tub Time Machine.
