"For some families, some people, it's a nightmare. It's a living hell," he confessed of the disorder in a recent interview. "They have to deal with realities that are beyond most people's understandings."

Fortunately, "my life is set up so I can pack Parkinson's along with me if I have to," the Family Ties alum explained.

The Back to the Future lead noted that looking at the glass half full is what keeps him going.

Daily Mail published photos of Fox and Pollan at the basketball game.
