Harold Ramis, actor/director/writer/comedian have been directing/starring/acting in movies since the early 80’s but he first got recognized to national fame w/ his iconic role of Egon Spengler for the first “Ghostbusters” film released in 1984. After the first “Ghostbusters” movie which became a huge hit and it’s still a huge movie to this day, Harold continued acting/directing/writing for other films. He directed other films such as “Groundhog Day”, the first “Caddyshack”, “Analyze This/That”, “Multiplicity”, “Bedazzled”, “Year One”, etc. He also had acting roles in films like “Stripes”, “As Good As It Gets”, “Airheads” and “Orange County”.
This passing really is too bad. Harold had health problems for a long while now… he had something called autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis. He was a very talented and funny man. Throughout his life and career, he put his career on a positive note so that made him a great guy.
I wonder what’s the fate going to be for “Ghostbusters III” now? Him and Dan Aykroyd have been planning for years. Will Dan continue on with the film or will he cancel the whole project? I’m sure we’ll hear from Mr. Aykroyd soon.
This really sucks. Harold was a talented and funny man. I’ve been a fan of his work for a long time.
