MegaCon: Thomas Wilson talks ‘Training Day’ TV show, reflects on ‘Back to the Future’

Thousands of fans flocked to the Orange County Convention Center for MegaCon and Thomas F. Wilson was on-hand with the amazing line-up of guests and I was able to talk about the upcoming Training Day TV series and of course, reflect on his favorite time/moment as Biff in the Back to the Future series.

“It was an amazing experience, but nothing like my film days,” Wilson said of his appearance on the sequel to the popular 2001 film which starred Denzel Washington.

“I have a lot of memories, but it seemed rushed at times…you know how in film you could get 32 takes just to get the perfect shot, but with TV, they want it excellent but not pristine.”

A second season of Training Day wasn’t in the cards after the passing of Bill Paxton and modest ratings for the CBS show, it was officially canceled two weeks ago. Wilson appeared in episode seven of the first season.

Wilson has one of the most personable guests I’ve ever met at a convention, greeting and hugging those in line, cracking jokes yet being attentive to each fans. Wonderful, just wonderful experience.

Turning to his most famous role, Biff in the Back to the Future films, he was intense, funny and adamant about his favorite part: playing a cowboy.

“I loved getting a chance to do the West and the cowboy story. It was awesome being a cowboy, riding the horses and the set was amazing.”

During his panel, Tom Wilson wowed the fans with his high energy fun attitude, even singing songs. Check a clip posted by Nerds and Beyond below.
