Biff Tannen from Back to the Future

Tom Wilson, aka Biff Tannen, from the Back to the Future trilogy, has been making waves lately with his comedy and radio appearances (specifically 790 The Ticket in Miami, FL) with his blunt comedy and songs.

Check out this link to his classic “Question Song” where he answers each and every question he has received throughout the years by fans who know him as one thing and one thing only.

 On a recent radio appearance Biff/Tom summed up what it was like to be known for this single reason of recognition when he said, “Imagine you played one really great volleyball game in fifth grade and that is all anyone wants to talk to you about for the next 25 years”. You can search for his full interviews on the Dan LeBatard Show here:

For some reason, however, Biff/Tom seems to have ended up on the right side of the young-movie star story, as he embraces his noteriety instead of turning it into an excuse to wind up like this guy: Bonaduce

Besides, anybody that can upstage Billy Zane in the pack of bullies (take a look at the top picture in this post at the guy to the right of the 3-D glasses guy) is ok by me!
