‘Back to the Future’s’ Marty McFly, Doc Brown Time-Travel to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Back to the Future” stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in character to celebrate the day made famous by their classic film.

Oct. 21, 2015 is the date to which Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel in “Back to the Future II.” The pair made a grand entrance, landing in a Delorean as their onscreen counterparts while Jimmy Kimmel delivered his monologue on the Brooklyn stage.

“What happened to Johnny Carson?” Brown asked, gradually growing less and less impressed with 2015.

The host informed them that Carson has died, there’s no peace in the Middle East, flying cars and hoverboards haven’t been invented and when people aren’t taking selfies, they’re watching TV “on their phones on the toilet.”

“I believe we may have inadvertently traveled into an alternate 2015,” Brown told McFly. “Where human evolution has been stopped by superfluous technology … and Biff reigns supreme.”

Kimmel also managed to combine a “Star Wars” joke with a Bill Cosby dig, a one-two punch of cultural relevance.

“On Monday night, they released what they’re calling the ‘final’ trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,'” Kimmel began. “This one takes place in space, which is fun. The movie doesn’t come out until Dec. 18 and the plot is top-secret. All we do know is that ‘The Force Awakens’ — and the last thing it remembers is getting a drink from Bill Cosby.”

Jimmy Kimmel Live!” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on ABC.
