One is happening, the other the world wants to happen.
In a recent interview with the Phoenix New Times, Christopher Lloyd has floated the possibility of joining the cast of Rick and Morty in a guest-starring role as Rick’s father in an upcoming episode. With a 70-episode back order commissioned by Adult Swim a couple of months ago, it’s very possible that the recently Emmy-nominated series could get the original “Doc”.:
So you’re a fan of Rick and Morty?
I don’t follow it closely, but I’ve seen a few episodes and I gotta tell you, I think it’s a lot of fun. I know it’s some kind of parody of Doc and Marty.
Would you ever want to guest star or do a guest voice on the show?
I’d like to, of course. I think it’s really fun.
Maybe as like Rick’s father or something like that?
(Chuckles) Yeah, yeah. That’d be fun.
