FRINGE Casts Christopher Lloyd

Christopher Lloyd

In a piece of inspired casting, Christopher Lloyd will be guest starring in the tenth episode of FRINGE this season.

Fringe star John Noble (Walter Bishop) told TV Guide that Lloyd will play one of Walter’s musical heroes. “We all know how much Walter loves music, right? Well this fellow was one of his icons. He adored this man. So Walter gets to be a bit of a fanboy.”

There are no details available about how Lloyd’s character will fit into the episode, but Noble told TV Guide it’s “a beautiful role” and he’s obviously very happy about the casting of Lloyd. “When I read the script I thought ‘I hope they get someone great.’ And Christopher Lloyd exceeds my expectations!”

Best known for playing Doc Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy and Fester Addams in the Addams Family films, Christopher Lloyd has recently guest starred in shows like Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Chuck.

Fringe airs on FOX Thursday nights at 9pm/8 central.
