Christopher Lloyd Wants to Be on ‘Rick and Morty’

Who exactly is watching "Rick and Morty" on Hulu?

Back to the Future, where Lloyd played inventor Emmett "Doc" Brown, is the obvious inspiration here, but I hope Rick ends up being a cross of Judge Doom from Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Reverend Jim Ignatowski from Taxi. Series co-creator Justin Roiland set out to make a vulgar parody, which later morphed into the hit series that everybody knows and loves today.

"I don't follow it closely, but I've seen a few episodes and I gotta tell you, I think it's a lot of fun". Lloyd responded by saying, "I'd like to, of course".

Lloyd added: "Well, I think its a matter of, first of all, it's important if Bob Zemeckis and Bob Gale are excited about doing another episode [of Back to the Future], I think, really, the most important thing is if they can come up with the right idea". I think that's the challenge is to come up with something that really is as good as the originals.

The Doc Brown star said: "I would love to do Doc again, no question". Proposed he take on the role of Rick's father, Lloyd chuckled, affirming "that'd be fun".

Elsewhere in the interview, Christopher Lloyd was also asked about time travel and what he would do if he could go back in time.

But would the original cast ever come back for Back to the Future Part IV?

When asked about the Facebook hoax that recently confirmed Back to the Future 4, Christopher Lloyd said that he hadn't heard about it. Lloyd also revealed that there could actually be a sequel being made, but he hasn't heard anything about it.

Lloyd, a.k.a. Doc Brown from Back to the Future, told the Phoenix New Times in an interview that he's a fan of Rick and Morty and would like to be on the show. The longer hiatus from the contract disputes has made the wait for Season 4 a bit longer than anticipated.

We don't know too much about Rick, do we?
