Michael J. Fox
Fox's middle initial "J" does not stand for anything. His birth name is Michael Andrew Fox but when he registered for the Screen Actors Guild, the name "Michael Fox" was already taken. Fox said he did not want to register "Michael A. Fox" because it presented a play on words, and that he was paying homage to actor Michael J. Pollard.
Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991, and disclosed his condition to the public in 1999. He semi-retired from acting in 2000 as the symptoms of his disease became more severe. He has since become an activist for research toward finding a cure. This led him to create The Michael J. Fox Foundation. On March 5, 2010, Sweden's Karolinska Institutet awarded him a doctorate of medicine degree, Honoris causa, for his work in advocating and fundraising for a cure for Parkinson's disease.
