Michael J. Fox Faces Fame in His 50s
It's been three decades since Alex P. Keaton stole America's teenaged hearts by taunting his sisters, arguing with his parents and exploring the various pitfalls of high school life on "Family Ties." Now married and a father himself, Michael J. Fox is heading back to the small screen with another series about family matters -- only this time, he plays the grown-up. The still untitled show is loosely based on Fox's life: It centers on a news anchor with four kids who wants to go back to work after a bout with Parkinson's disease. "It's based loosely on my experiences. And I don't want to say too much because I don't want my kids to think every time a kid does something goofy on the show that it's a reflection on them," Fox tells "Access Hollywood."
But with the new show, comes a new entree into the spotlight -- and a slightly different demographic. Referring to his latest magazine cover shoot, Fox notes, "I went from Teen Beat and Tiger Beat ... to AARP. There's some great tips about colon health!"
