Michael J. Fox

Because an actor named Michael Fox was already registered with the Screen Actors Guild, Michael Andrew Fox was required to add a middle initial to his name. He adopted a J in honor of character actor Michael J. Pollard because he did not want teen magazines using headlines like "Michael, A Fox!"

[Fox was so poor when he first arrived in L.A. that he sold his sectional couch piece by piece to cover his expenses.]
