    I don't really mind having a new, younger crop of Ghostbusters, but I can't say I'm crazy about any of the suggestions above.

    I think Steve Carell's deadpan style of humor might fit though. Or someone like Aasif Mandvi from the Daily Show. Or one of those stoner comedians like Doug Benson, who could probably bring a fun new perspective to the thing.

    [COLOR=#003399]Brian Posehn[/COLOR] would be a great as a guy with the helmet one, reading whether he is stelling the truth or not, like in the scene from the first film with Dana.

    Andy Richter could pull off being a Ghostbuster, I think.

    Can't see that where I am, sorry. It's geolocked. My point however is that the movies aren't built on a foundation of low-brow humour. And I just saw GB on Halloween, and there was nothing remotely low-brow about it.

    The fact that it was written as a vehicle for John Belushi should give an indication of the type of humor they were going for. I believe I've posted my picks for a new crop of Ghostbusters but in case no one saw those:

    Eliza Dushku or Alyssa Milano (or both)
    Seth Rogen
    Will Smith
    Zachery Levi

    Will Smith is definitely out of the question considering his salary (and probably unwillingness to appear in someone else's franchise), but way back when GB3 was first being tossed around, the proposed idea was for Will Smith, Ben Stiller and Chris Farley.

    Now they should consider maybe Paul Rudd and Elizabeth Banks.

    Well, there is that, but I still wouldn't call the GB movies low-brow. It's rather tame by comparison. It's not like they were going out of their way to write something crass.

    Damn those are excellent choices...especially Elizabeth Banks. She'd make an excellent Ghostbuster.

    Emma Stone will be fairly busy over the next few months filming "Spider-Man".

    Here's mine:

    Shia LeBeouf (Oscar Venkman)

    Christy Carlson Romano (character similar to Egon Spengler or Kylie Griffin)

    Seth Rogen (character similar to Ray Stanz)

    Nick Cannon (character similar to Winston Zeddmore-can be a younger nephew of Winston!)

    Great choices, or what?

    I've had a mild crush on her for awhile.
    Now, having seen her shower scene for Mirrors 2 its upgraded to infatuation.

    Cast her.

    I have had a crush on Christy since I saw her as Shia's older sister on "Even Stevens" and then cemented it when I discovered she was the voice of Kim Possible! I could see her as playing maybe a student or Egon's protege that he has met through some physics teaching job he has taken at Empire Sate or Columbia.

    Then Kyle Massey (Corey In The House) can play him, or some other unknown black actor can do it.

    Bill Murray did an interview with Howard Stern where he revealed he's yet to read the latest draft of the "Ghostbusters III" script that Ivan Reitman sent him. Doesn't consider it a priority, knows that he is the main holdup in getting this finally greenlit, still seems bitter and disappointed in how "Ghostbusters II" turned out and this might be one of the reasons why he's hesitant about doing another one. He feels kind of bad and realizes that fans and the studio want another movie. Bill also states that he knows that the studio would prefer doing a complete reboot. It's pretty interesting.
