For you Back To The Future Fans..You'll remember Norman as Lou Caruthers, the owner of the coffee shop in Back to the Future!









Born in 1924, Norman Alden served in the Army during World War II. At the end of the conflict he had the opportunity to benefit from the Montgomery GI Bill program meant to help returning soldiers to start or resume studying. That is how, while attending Texas Christian University, he discovered on the boards of on-campus theater that he had a talent for acting. This was the beginning of a long long career.



 

For you Transformer fans, you'll remember Norman as Kranix and Arblus from the 1986 animated film!
