Q: Did you vet the concept, or even the pilot script, of “The Michael J. Fox Show,” with others in the Parkinson’s disease community?

A: No, I didn’t. I don’t vet creative instinct; I just go with it. I feel that this is a reflection of my experience ... and certainly, in the pilot, it was more prevalent than it is in the (subsequent) scripts.

The way I look at life, the way I look at the reality of Parkinson’s, is that sometimes it’s frustrating, and sometimes it’s funny. I need to look at it that way, and I think other people will look at it that way.

But beyond that, I think we all get our own “bag of hammers”; we all get our own Parkinson’s. We all get our own thing. We’ll look at this through the filter of that experience, and we’ll say, “Yeah, I need to laugh at my stuff, too.” I mean, if someone wants to be outraged, they can be outraged. I don’t think it’s that outrageous.

Q: How much did your guest turns in recent years on such shows as “Rescue Me,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “The Good Wife” do to convince you to return to weekly work?

A: The guest shots were great, and they really brought me to a place of, “This is what I do, this is what I was built and programmed to do.” And so, I wanted to do it.

I mean, it’s what I love to do, and what I’ve enjoyed throughout my life, and I just thought, “Why can’t I?” I mean, there’s no reason not to do it.
