People are searching the web for the phrase "Michael J Fox's obituary," oddly enough in conjunction with his return to TV for the first time in more than a decade. The actor is alive and well and no reports have caused concern for his well being for an obituary to have been written.
The actor who left tv to concentrate on fighting Parkinson's disease, which he has been very open about, was on the hit TV shows "Spin City" and got his start in the 80s with "Family Ties."
He is set to star in a comedy developed by Sony Pictures Television for 2013.
Fox who also starred in the classic "Back to the Future" m franchise is working with director Will Gluck who directed, the film "Easy A" and Sam Laybourne who helped write "Arrested Development."
Fox or his publicist have failed to comment on the show's release.
Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991 and left the show "Spin City" in the year 2000 when he said he wanted to focus on helping find a cure for the disease. The uncurable disease targets motor skills, may cause dementia and targets the nervous system. His foundation, the Michael J. Fox Foundation has raised over $297.
In May, Fox said to ABC News that a new drug regimen helped him control the tics that result from Parkinson's disease and allows him to take on more acting roles.
Fox met his wife Tracy Pollan on the set of "Family Ties" and the duo has been married since 1988. They also have 4 children.
He has written three books: "Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist," "Lucky Man: A Memoir" and "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future: Twists and Turns and Lessons Learned."
