Today is...Christopher Lloyd's Birthday

Today is Christopher Lloyd's birthday.

Christopher Lloyd is most famous for playing Doc (Emmett Brown) in all three Back to the Future movies.

Lloyd gained prominence as an actor as Reverend Jim Ignatowski in Taxi, which earned him two Emmy awards.

Lloyd also notably played Judge Doom in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a live-action/animated combination movie made by Walt Disney Productions in 1988. It had a budget of $29.9 million, the most expensive animated film ever.

As of today, Who Framed Roger Rabbit is the only time Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny have appeared on screen together. It also includes a scene of Daffy Duck and Donald Duck (no relation) on screen together.

The movie spun off three animated Roger Rabbit shorts: Tummy Trouble, which released in theaters before Honey, I Shrunk the Kids and later Aladdin; Roller Coaster Rabbit, released theatrically before Dick Tracy; and Trail Mix-up, released before A Far off Place in theaters.

Robert Zemeckis directed both Who Framed Roger Rabbit and all three Back to the Future movies.
