October 28, 2009|David Ng

The upcoming production of "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" at Hollywood's Pantages Theatre has lost its Grinch.

Actor Christopher Lloyd -- best know for playing Doc in the "Back to the Future" movies -- has withdrawn from the lead role due to a family illness, according to the show's promoters. He'll be replaced by Stefan Karl, who has performed in the musical in Boston and Baltimore.

"Grinch" is set to open Nov. 10 and run through Jan. 3.
