Lea Thompson takes Mr. Media back to the future!

Actress Lea Thompson, perhaps best known for starring in the NBC sitcom “Caroline in the City”Back to the Future movies, will be the guest host at "ACME this Week" at ACME Comedy Theatre, 135 North La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90036.

To promote her appearance at ACME, she’s swallowing her pride and appearing on Mr. Media Interviews!

Here’s the Evelyn Wood version of Lea’s career, courtesy of IMDB.comm.: Her first role was in the movie Jaws 3-D (1983) as a water ski bunny, although she couldn't swim or ski, which she still can't! Her next role was in All the Right Moves (1983) where she acted opposite Tom Cruise.

Lea's biggest known accomplishment, and her big break, came from the first Back to the Future (1985). It was the biggest hit of 1985, and Lea was suddenly the most wanted actress. Director Howard Deutch offered Lea a part in his movie, Some Kind of Wonderful (1987), but she refused. Lea went on to film Back to the Future Part II (1989 but then married Deutch and starred in Back to the Future Part III (1990.

From 1995-99, Lea starred in the NBC-TV sitcom, “Caroline in the City,” the saga of a popular cartoonist with wacky friends.

She stars in the “Jane Doe” mystery series on the Hallmark Channel and is in pre-production on three new movies for 2009, including: Prettyface, Rock Slyde and Splinterheads.
