The performer is ill. He speaks candidly about both his acting experience and Parkinson’s disease.
Michael J. Fox, 29, was devastated by Parkinson’s disease.
Instead, he played up his illness. He portrayed an OCD physician on House in 2004. He portrayed lawyer Louis Canning in The Good Wife, who tricked jurors by claiming to have a neurological condition.
The 60-year-old actor feels that acting is becoming more difficult. He claimed it was getting harder to learn lines.
He can no longer memorize lines quickly due to his sickness, which makes acting challenging.
The actor had no trouble recalling his lines. “I understood it right away, and I continued to feel that way. Knowing that a pricey Steadicam shot depends on me remembering the lines without breaking a sweat, I would have 70 pages of speech in a [Brian] De Palma film.
He rejects parts with much of discussion.
There were five pages of dialogue. He admitted it. He seems to be accepting it, knowing he can’t change it.

I did everything, he claimed. I had a job in August. I tripped and fell in the kitchen. My arm snapped. One plate and 19 pins. It was disastrous.
I avoid discussing how everything happens “for a purpose.”
Why, after six months in a wheelchair, would I skip down the hallway to the kitchen? I had high hopes for myself, but I also made mistakes. Failures weren’t given the same weight by me.
. His fourth autobiography was it. Actor first wrote, “My guitar playing is no good. All of my acting, dancing, and sketching are terrible. I’m writing now. Thankfully, it’s enjoyable.
The actor has kept a positive attitude despite his condition. In order to find a cure, he established the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, which has raised more than $1 billion.
“Optimism is perpetuated if you can discover something to be grateful for,” he told AARP. I enjoy my life, my wife, and my children at the age of 60 despite the monstrosity I carry around every day. Parkinson’s affects my life. The driver, not…
