The Canadian born actor reveals in his new tell all memoir No Time Like the Future, that Fox is retiring from acting again due to declining health.
“There is a time for everything, and my time of putting in a twelve-hour workday, and memorizing seven pages of dialogue, is best behind me,” Fox writes. “At least for now … I enter a second retirement. That could change, because everything changes. But if this is the end of my acting career, so be it.”
Fox was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s disease back in 1991. Fox retired on 2000 from his lead role in the sitcom “Spin City”, though he continued to act, appearing in guest roles on a number of shows.
Earlier this month, the Back to the Future star opened up his decades-long battle with Parkinson's Disease, which he was diagnosed with at age 29.
In 2018, Fox underwent surgery for a noncancerous tumor on his spine and had to learn to walk again.
