The 67-year-old has a role in upcoming comedy movie "A Friggin' Christmas Miracle" starring Joel McHale, Robin Williams and Lauren Graham.
Grodin, meanwhile, is mostly remembered for his portrayal of George Newton in the 1990s John Hughes comedy franchise, "Beethoven".

On "The Michael J. Fox Show" inspired by his true life, Michael J. Fox stars as Michael "Mike" Henry who put his career on hold to spend more time with his family and focus on his health after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's. But now five years later, with the kids busy growing up and Mike growing restless, it just might be time for him to get back to work.
