Michael J. Fox: I Was 'Drinking Heavily' Following Parkinson's Diagnosis

Originally posted 09/26/2013 11:45AM

Michael J. Fox has inspired millions with his courageous optimism and self-deprecating humor while battling Parkinson's disease.

Yet the veteran comedic actor, 52, whose highly anticipated The Michael J. Fox Show debuts on NBC Thursday, says he suffered through a tremendously dark period shortly after his diagnosis in 1991 and turned to alcohol for comfort.

"My first reaction to it was to start drinking heavily," he told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM Radio show Wednesday. "I used to drink to party, but now I was drinking alone and ... every day."

Michael J. Fox Mines His Parkinson's Disease for Laughs on New NBC Show

Originally posted 08/13/2013 01:30PM

Can Parkinson's disease be funny?

Michael J. Fox, who was diagnosed with the disease in 1991, sure thinks so.

"I have challenges that come with Parkinson's but my experience is to deal with things through humor," he explains in a first look at his much-anticipated new NBC show.

The Michael J. Fox Show stars Fox, 52, as Mike Henry, a family-oriented New York news anchor who quits after his Parkinson's diagnosis. But much like the real-life Fox, Henry eventually decides to get back to work – although he doesn't want to make a big deal about it.

Michael J. Fox's four kids might find some familiar scenes in their dad's new NBC sitcom, about a husband and father with Parkinson's disease who decides to go back to work after taking some time off.

"There are some things taken from [my] life," he tells reporters Saturday at the Television Critics Association press tour.

"For example, my youngest daughter, when she went to camp a couple of years ago, took us aside and said, 'I'm warning you, when I go camping and you see pictures on the Internet, I'm trying out a new smile.' And we transposed that to the daughter on the show, when she doesn't like the way she runs, so she rehearses a new running method. There's little snips and pieces of the experience of raising teenagers."

While the Chicago Blackhawks celebrated with the Stanley Cup on Monday, Michael J. Fox's dog, Gus, celebrated with something equally sweet in his bowl.

"Congrats to the Hawks ... this year's top dog," the actor Tweeted on Tuesday, sharing a photo of his pooch dining on a hockey puck-shaped treat emblazoned with the Blackhawks's logo.

Much like the Blackhawks's down-to-the-wire win against the Boston Bruins on Monday night, Gus's snapshot also caused a stir among Fox's followers – but for a different reason.
