Philadelphia, Pennsylvania -- January 12, 2016 – He may be best known to Wizard World fans for his iconic portrayal of "Doc Brown" in the Back to the Future trilogy, but Christopher Lloyd's career spans 40 years, with 200 roles from blockbuster films like The Addams Family and Who Framed Roger Rabbit to classic series like "Taxi." The prolific Lloyd will make just his third Wizard World appearance, June 3-5 at Wizard World Comic Con Philadelphia, where he will join two of his Back to the Future co-stars, Michael J. Fox and Lea Thompson, who were recently announced as additions to the celebrity roster at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Lloyd has won three Primetime Emmy Awards (two for "Taxi," one for "Road to Avonlea") and an Independent Spirit Award, and has been nominated for two Saturn Awards and a Daytime Emmy Award.
