Michael J. Fox

He was on for the second week in a row on Boston Legal. As many of you know, he is suffering from Parkinson's disease. You can see it. It's heart breaking.

I didn't watch it, does he really look bad? That is so sad, I have always loved Michael J. Fox.

....great example of a person who wants to work as long as they can despite serious illness.

..Fox is a neat guy.

He had done an admirable job on the show even though the effects of Parkinson's are obvious. I applaud him for his desire.

I told my husband last night that when he does die that it will be a tragic heartbreaking time for all, as did when John Ritter died. I love Michael J. He is a great person and seems like no matter what the odds he is going to try to conquer it. He knows he is dying and it's sad cuz that's the storyline he has on the show except his character has cancer. My prayers go out to him.

He is an actor not Jesus Christ!!!!
Enjoyed his work but the effect on my life little to none.

I missed last night's episode...did he & Carol-from-'Ed' end up together? I did notice that he really has noticeable symptoms, although he masters them seemingly well. I'm not sure that I'd notice, apart from the obvious media reports, etc. because Michael J. Fox has always been animated in his mannerisms. I understand that it's always been liked to the Parkinson's, but not knowing, I'd be in the dark...

Brave guy.

They did end up together...last night was a great episode. Michael J. Fox is very courageous and even with his noticeable symptoms, he's a good actor. Just can't live without BOSTON LEGAL...I love it!

Heartbreaking is the perfect word. I wish I could take him in my DeLorean and travel back to healthier times.
