LOS ANGELES - Christopher Lloyd, the actor best known for his role as Doc Brown in the "Back to the Future" trilogy, was one of many who were left homeless last week after fire tore through an upscale L.A. neighborhood.
Lloyd's $11 million mansion was destroyed. Inside the mansion was $2 million worth of stolen props from the "Back to the Future" movie sets. "Everything was destroyed - but not the flux capacitor - you'd best believe I saved the one device that makes time travel possible, Marty!" the 66-year-old actor was quoted as saying to the L.A. Times. He then added, "You know it's funny - all these years I looked homeless, and now I am! Marty!"
The actor plans to purchase the last Yugo ever produced, which rolled off the assembly line this past Thursday, as the main portal for his time machine. "I plan to go back and stop the fire from ever being started. I'll do that by not letting myself store gasoline containers next to my Zippo lighter collection. Marty!"
