aka Egon from Ghostbusters and the director of Groundhog Day
As a child of the 80s ghostbusters was a big deal for me and I thought they were the fucking coolest. And apart from his acting roles he also made Groundhog Day and for that alone he's the fucking man!
and not be prematurely freed by a dickless bureaucrat.
I was never a big Ghostbusters fan (yeah, I know) but I would put Groundhog Day in my all-time top 10 films. He also made me laugh out loud when he sang Close To You in Parenthood.
If not, you'll be glad to hear that only one of the people you've described is dead.
Oh yeah - it was Rick thingy.
But he did direct Groundhog Day
Dear Mrs Ramis,
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I loved Harold. Best thing about Honey I Shrunk The Kids.
Ghostbusters 1 & 2 were my favourite films growing up, I used to watch them both every single day when I was really little. Groundhog Day is a genuine classic too.
Dan Aykroyd has always seemed determined to get it made and the plot was supposed to be more about a new team of Ghostbusters than the original 4 anyway. They were willing to make it without Bill Murray at one point and Ramis and Aykroyd had already finished the script so it could still happen but I really, really hope it doesn't.
Belated sequels+Dan Akroyd=can't go wrong
Can you imagine a world without Blues Brothers 2000?
is one of the most joyful character depictions I've ever seen. I sincerely hope he had that sunny disposition IRL in his later years (and his whole life, for that matter).
Got my share of toys and sweets and stuff, was happy with that. But, later on, we went to my aunties for dinner and got my present off my Grandad, he'd made me a Ghostbusters proton pack out of a frosties box, a dairylea packet and some other bits and bobs and one for my cousin too. We both went fucking MENTAL! Wouldn't give our parents peace for the rest of the day, zapping ghosts at the dinner table, pretty sure my cousin took his to bed with him that night.
Anyway, Ghostbusters was pretty much my favourite thing as a kid so I'm really sad to hear Harold Ramis has passed away.
