RICKY DEAN'S BIO
Over the course of a career spanning three decades (and still going strong), RICKY DEAN LOGAN has proven himself a versatile, constantly evolving talent, both in front of, and behind the cameras.
With just one TV movie to his credit, Logan made his motion picture debut in one of 1989’s blockbuster, Back to the Future: Part II, playing the role of ‘Data,’ one-third of Griff’s gang who pursue Marty McFly in a hoverboard chase through the town square of a futuristic Hill Valley. The actor’s performance so impressed director Bob Zemeckis and co-creator/producer Bob Gale, they brought Logan back for a completely different role for Back to the Future Part III. Shortly thereafter, Ricky appeared in another classic film franchise, with his role as Carlos in Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare.
Since that time, the actor has appeared in a steady stream of film and television projects, with roles in such popular series including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Seinfeld, Tales From the Crypt, Baywatch, Pacific Blue, ER, Las Vegas, Days of Our Lives, My Name is Earl, Southland and The Mentalist, among many others. He has leant his voice to a number of video games, as well as the animated series, Spawn. In 2012, Logan re-teamed with his Back to the Future II ‘gang-mate’ Darlene Vogel to star, produce, co-write, and compose the original score for the short film, It Could Change Everything.
As the year 2015 approached, Logan began work on a special project for the multitudes of Back to the Future fans. With the blessing of BTTF’s Bob Gale, Ricky went ‘back,’ and produced the short film, Back to the 2015 Future, which saw Marty McFly arriving in the real version of 2015, as opposed to the more fantastical fictional version of Hill Valley. As producer, Logan was able to secure several of the
original films’ locations, including the classic Hill Valley Courthouse on the Universal Pictures back lot. He makes a cameo appearance as his cinematic alter-ego, Data in the short, and enlisted the talents of original cast members Claudia Wells (Jennifer Parker), Donald Fullilove (Mayor Goldie Wilson) and Darlene Vogel (Spike).
Back to the 2015 Future debuted on October 21st, 2015 at Universal’s Citywalk to enthusiastic fans, and was featured on more than one occasion at the “We’re Going Back” convention, a weeklong celebration for the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. The short was received with delight by the thousands in attendance at the event. It has since been seen by many thousands more on YouTube and numerous other websites.
When not in front of, or behind the cameras, Ricky travels around the globe to comic cons and conventions to meet and greet his fans. The actor lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
