Crispin Glover got quietly replaced for the second two films aswell - rumours abound. The replacement guy wore prosthetics to look like him.
He successfully sued the studio after BTTF II for $760k for using his likeness without consent, which led to a strengthening of actor's image rights generally, so fair play to him..

I guess this is well known, but having recently listened to the Blank Check podcast episode about the first Back to the Future, I didn't realize they had shot a pretty big chunk of the movie with a different lead actor (Eric Stoltz) prior to Michael J Fox coming on board. From the handful of clips of it that are available it looks like he would have been more of a gloomy gothy version of Marty:

I also didn't know about Fox's insane shooting schedule.. he was only allowed shoot Back to the Future on condition that he fulfilled his Family Ties TV obligations, so he was shooting the sitcom from 6am til 6pm, then travelling across town to shoot the movie until 2 or 3am, then getting between 2-4 hours sleep per night, for three whole months..

Weird I don't remember Eric Stoltz looking like that but then I googled him and he did
