Skinhead was one of three high school boys who made up Biff Tannen's gang in 1955. He got his nickname from a distinctive character trait; "Skinhead" had very short, close-cropped hair.

Along with Match and 3-D, the adult version of Skinhead served as one of Biff's bodyguards at Biff Tannen's Pleasure Paradise Casino & Hotel in 1985A.

It is possible that Skinhead was still living in Hill Valley in 1985 (however, it is unclear as to whether this was still the case in 2015), as one of the boys in Needles' gang in 1985 looked like Skinhead, and quite possibly could have been his son.

Behind the scenes

  • He was never referred to by his real name or his nickname. However, Biff briefly refers to Skinhead as "Joey" while outside of the Enchantment Under the Sea dance. His nickname is only given in the films' novels, screenplays and credits.
  • Skinhead was portrayed by J.J. Cohen in Back to the Future and Back to the Future Part II.
  • Cohen also played the role of the boy in Needles' gang in 1985, although with long hair instead of a crewcut.
