Re: RIP Harold Ramis

He was awesome.

Animal House, Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters...this guy was a comedy genius in whatever role he was playing in a production.

RIP

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

It sounds very sad that Bill Murray burned most of his bridges with the old Ghostbusters gang.

He's expressed his feelings, via lawyer, about the loss. It *is* a shame the two has such a falling out but, really, like his "Groundhog Day" character Murray is kind of a prima donna jackass.

Very sad and torn-up to hear this news. I had no hope that a sequel would ever be made to Ghostbusters and even if it did it'd come around 20 years too late. Still, Egon was my favorite of the Ghostbusters team and who I identified with the most. Even as a kid when we built "robots" in grade-school while learning about basic electronics my "robot" was modeled after Egon (granted, the cartoon version of the character.)

Rest In Peace, Harold Ramis. You certainly were a talented man, and when you made a good movie you knocked it out of the park.

If you're a ghost now, go to Akroyd's house and re-enact that "ghost BJ" scene from the first movie. (Just the first part of it, you need not actually go all the way. ) It'll really freak him out!

I was a huge fan in my teenage years. Always hoped he could replay his Ghostbuster's character. He will be missed.

Same here . I was looking forward to a third film as well. We kind of got one with 2009's Ghostbusters game though. All of the original cast is involved.

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

I know him and love him from his role as Maurice 'Moe' Green from SCTV, and I've found him, and his characters, funny as hell. This has hit me like a hit to the solar plexus, and I will miss him. RIP, Harold.

Here's some of what he did on SCTV:

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

Wow! I just found out about this, this sucks. Ghostbusters is by and far one of my favorites and is a great childhood memory, it's a classic for me. Groundhogs Day was also a hilarious movie, I was just talking about the movie a few weeks ago on the actual groundhog's day. This is a complete bummer. I just watched Monuments Men and Bill Murray did well, but Harold Ramis will be missed.

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

A Facebook friend put it well when he said Groundhog Day is as close to perfect as a movie can get. And as we all know, those kinds of movies are exceptionally few and far between to say the least.

So I guess that this means Egon's dead in-universe (comic books, novels, video games, any future TV show, fan fiction) too.
