Michael J. Fox Says Parkinson's Disease Has Helped His Acting

Sep 17 2013, 6:58am CDT | by ABC News Radio

Jim Spellman/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- For some, the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease can be debilitating, but for Michael J. Fox he says his diagnosis has improved his acting.

The 52-year-old actor tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I used to be really nervous and sit in my dressing room and fret about a scene that was coming up and sweat it out and say 'What am I going to do?  You say action and I have to do something.  What am I going to do?  And what's that actor going to do?  And how do I respond to that?'"

"And now...I don't worry about that bit I was going to do or the look I was gonna give because when I get there I may not be able to give that look or do that thing or move that glass," he explained.

"I had a certain fluidity to my movements and rhythm of speech and a physicality that I had depended on," he continued.  "It served me really well, but when that was taken away, I found that there was other stuff that I could use. That hesitation, that Parkinsonian affect, is an opportunity to just pause in a moment and collect as a character and respond to what’s happening and just gave me this kind of gravitas.  It really gave me a new view of things."

Fox is making a TV comeback in the new NBC series, The Michael J. Fox Show.  He plays a newscaster with Parkinson's who returns to work after a long time away from the business./>/>/>/>/>/>/>/>
