Publisher's Summary

Tom Wilson, the actor, comedian, and writer best known for playing "Biff" in the classic movie "Back to the Future," goes on an unplanned adventure after meeting fellow actor Clayton Moore, the man who played The Lone Ranger on T.V., experienced the pitfalls of pop celebrity, and most notably, died over a decade ago. In stories of the past that careen from Ethel Merman on Broadway to John Belushi on his last night on earth, to fantastic tales of the present, including a showdown on horseback on Steven Spielberg's driveway, two somewhat reluctant icons form a memorable bond, and a remarkable listen.

Everything You Think, But Completely Different

If you could sum up The Masked Man in three words, what would they be?

Unusual, funny, satisfying

What did you like best about this story?

I really enjoyed the self-deprecating humor, the complete truth telling, as well as the unusual literary device of the "One Ranger." Well written, creatively presented, and if none of that matters to you, he also offers up the conventional "real story" of the "behind the scenes" that we all salivate for.

Which character – as performed by Tom Wilson – was your favorite?

The "One Ranger", but all of his characterizations are spot-on and really liven up the audio experience.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I appreciated the ending. I was skeptical following him through the journey and wondered how it would all get resolved. A great finish and I think fans of the movie, of the actor, and of good memoirs will really enjoy this.

What a fantastic book

Tom Wilson has written a wonderful account of his time as an actor with some fun fantasy as he realizes what he has really been searching for....

Entertaining and whimsical

Fans of Back to the Future will enjoy the occasional behind-the-scenes insights. Film fans in general will get an idea of the downside of one well known performance, and the superficial nature of fame.

Tom does a superb job of performing his own book (he is more than simply reading). The mystery surrounding the Ranger's purpose is not well resolved but the character was amusing enough to keep me interested.
