Kyle and JD give a scene by scene breakdown on the film of what they loved about the cult classic. Click here to listen.
This was probably the most challenging lists I have ever created. Not because there was a lot of competition. But because of the sheer lack of famous Martins. To be fair, I did consider any person named Marty as well. But found there to be more characters named Marty than real people (Marty McFly, Marty Johnson). I also wish I could have included Martin Crane. Alas, he didn’t make the cut. But these people did!
5) Martin Sheen
From Apocalypse Now to The Departed, Sheen’s career has spanned a few decades. He is responsible for the birth of some other famous people. And he is a flashy silver fox. I would guess that he probably smells great and has a proper appreciation for fine scotch.
4) Martin Short
Short isn’t really short. I mean, he is below average. He definitely is not tall. But really, he just isn’t that short. Maybe his parents are short. Or his grandparents. I kind of actually like Martin Short. I think he is funny. When I was young, we used to watch The Three Amigos all the time. That should be a future episode. What do you think?
3) Martin Lawrence
Martin. Martin! MARTIN! Damn Gina. Martin Lawrence’s acting range hits from action to comedy. And to be fair, he is hilarious in action movies and menacing in comedy flicks. Wait, that can’t be right? Oh who cares. Black Knight!
2) Martin Freeman
Hmm. Martin Freeman is the same height as Martin Short. That doesn’t seem fair. Wait. Martin Lawrence is the same height as well. This can’t be accurate, can it? Oh my gosh. Upon further investigation, so is Martin Sheen. Maybe I should have just done a list of my favorite people who are 5’7.
1) Martin Starr
Oh darn. He isn’t the same height as all the other Martins. Oh well. I guess that makes sense as to why he is the top Martin. He is the tallest. I saw him once at a convention. I smiled, but he was looking in the other direction. So I count that as a better time than when I met Lou Ferrigno.

Michael is more than just a movie about John Travolta’s life. it is also a name that many people have. And among the many people are these 5 amazing actors. Picking a top list of actors named Michael was quite difficult. And no, Chad Michael Murray did not make the list.
5) Michael Gross
One of America’s favorite dads. This Michael comes in a bearded version or a mustached version. Select Michael Gross’ include a clean shaven face. I don’t know if I like him better on Family Ties or from Tremors. Either way, that’s gross. No. That’s Michael Gross.
4) Michael Myers
Oh, behave. Have we covered a Mike Myers movie? I mean, we did Halloween, but does that count? I always thought he was a funny actor, but I never fully understood him. He isn’t wirey like Jim Carrey, and he isn’t off the wall like Robin Williams. And yet, here he is…included with this list.
I feel like Keaton is hitting his stride with each year that passes. I mean, those eyebrows…right? He is a perfect villain. Just like when he was the bad guy in Mr. Mom. Wait, am I remembering that correctly?
2) Michael Shannon
This is a vanity pick for me. I happen to think Michael Shannon is a tremendous actor. From film to TV, he has done an excellent job of portraying dramatic and menacing characters. Plus, I met him once and happen to know that he likes fried mac n’ cheese balls.
1) Michael J. Fox
Come on. He had to be number one. He is one of the greatest Michaels in the world. He has brought so much joy and love to the world. And in case you didn’t know, the name of our podcast is based on Back to the Future. Little factoid for ya!
