Hanging upside down and staying in character wasn’t difficult for gifted actor Jeffrey Weissman.
Neither are directing, interacting with audiences as historic characters, teaching, or creating a one-man show.
While his international fanbase remembers Jeffrey best for his role as “George McFly” in Back to the Future: 2 and 3, he’s been involved in numerous other projects since Marty Mc Fly zoomed back and forth through time.
Jeffrey creates historic characters, including Groucho Marx and Stan Laurel, for interactive events.
He’s also writing a one-man show about an aspect of Mark Twain that most people don’t know.
Roles in environmental theatre are an area in which he excels (here he is as Mr. Jingle in the 2014 Dickens Christmas Faire). Jeffrey is currently in the pre-production process of several independent films.
As Back to the Future celebrates its 30th anniversary, he’s also coordinating an exciting project–which benefits Parkinson’s research!
Jeffrey talked about his journey as an actor, his experiences portraying George McFly in the second and third installments of Back to the Future, and the lessons he’s learned from his career (hint: one tip he shares applies, not only to acting but to practically any creative venture!).
