Re: RIP Harold Ramis

One of those deaths where, when you hear of it you just deflate like a balloon. Obviously he had an impressive CV outside of Ghostbusters (I was only watching Groundhog Day on Saturday, fantastic film), but to those of us of that right age he's a childhood hero, and when one of those goes it always hits you hard.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends. Very, very sad news. He was Egon to me and he made some wonderful movies.

Just saw the news of Mr. Ramis' passing over at Entertainment Weekly.

Very sad, indeed. R.I.P. and thanks for the laughs....

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

This sucks. Harold Ramis was a seriously talented actor and director. Much of my childhood can be found in his movies. May he rest in peace.

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

To say this man's work was a comic presence in my life at an early age would be an understatement. Two of my absolute favorite movies as a kid were Stripes and the original Ghostbusters, and I was also a devoted and regular viewer of SCTV after the show wrapped production and went into rerun syndication. Ramis wasn't the biggest nor best cast member on the show but he was brilliant and funny all the same.

Rest in peace. You were the biggest Twinkie of them all.

^ In one of the later seasons there was a great "power struggle" at SCTV when Ramis as "Crazy Legs" was trying to fire Guy Caballero... I'm laughing aloud just thinking about it now.

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

His part in As Good As It Gets was also pretty great. The man could turn a brief role into gold and be little more than himself. He was amusing just sitting or standing.

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

Ugh, this hurts. I was raised on "Ghostbusters" - I've seen that movie more times than any human should ever see the same film. I still remember getting the VHS for my 4th birthday; it's one of my earliest memories!

I really, really hope this is some horrible cruel internet hoax. I know it's not, it's confirmed by too many varied sources, but still... :'(

When The Ice Harvest came out, Ramis did and interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air. Worth a listen.

Another fine talent gone. I think I first saw his name on articles in the pages of National Lampoon in the early 70s.
