Michael J. Fox and Jason Bateman got some screentime at a recent New York Rangers game and fans were simply loving it,

Fox, who starred as a werewolf in the 1985 movie Teen Wolf, and Bateman, the lead in the 1987 sequel Teen Wolf Too, were spotted together cheering on their Rangers as they faced the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 1 Sunday.

The team’s official Instagram account shared the moment with fans.

Bateman looks a little bit like he might be preparing to reprise his role in the franchise.

Fox And Bateman Together

Fox and Bateman, despite both being in the Teen Wolf movie franchise, have never been on screen for the same project before.

Fox was very prolific as a child actor and was a bonafide Hollywood star early on with such credits as Back to the Future and Doc Hollywood, after launching to fame in the series Family Ties, in which he played the iconic role of Alex P. Keaton.

Bateman, meanwhile, well, what hasn’t he been in? He got his big break as a child actor in the series The Hogan Family and has gone on to star in such hits as Arrested Development and Ozark.

Not to mention probably his most notable role – in this house anyway – as commentator Pepper Brooks in the movie Dodgeball.

Family In The House

The Rangers captioned their post, “Family in the House” which may have been a subtle reference to Family Ties and New York fandom in general.

Whatever it is, cheers to these two. They were able to see their Rangers get an impressive opening series win and made their fans smile in the process.

It’s great to see these guys out having a great time. Especially Fox, who has had a long, difficult battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Fox was diagnosed at the age of 29, just as he was hitting his stride in Hollywood. In recent comments to the Guardian, however, he remained a defiant fighter.

“I hate it. It sucks,” he said. “It’s a piece of s—. It’s tough to get up in the morning and keep going,” he said. “But I have a beautiful family and this office with trophies.”

He added, “It didn’t defeat me.”

Fox is a true inspiration, and both he and Bateman are true living legends. Here’s hoping they enjoyed their time at the Rangers game together!
