Actor Michael J. Fox, who suffers from Parkinson’s, said at the Television Critics Association press tour that he’s adjusting to the rigorous schedule of a 22-episode season, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
Fox, who will star in "The Michael J. Fox Show" on NBC, said he has taped six episodes so far.
"I knew one of two things would happen over the year: I would atrophy or I’d rebuild the muscles — and I’m rebuilding the muscles," he said.
Questions about Fox’s health were predominant in the panel on the show at the TCA press tour, the story notes.
"Sometimes it’s frustrating, and sometimes it’s funny," he said of his battle with the disease. "I look at it that way, and I think other people need to look at it that way. … If someone wants to be outraged, they can be outraged. I don’t think it’s that outrageous."
