Tributes poured in for respected comedy actor and writer Harold Ramis, last night, after the Ghostbusters star passed away at the age of 69, following a long battle with an autoimmune disease. The star will probably be remembered best for playing Egon Spengler in both the Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 movies, but hardcore comedy fans will know that Harold was a veteran writer for the big screen, and along with the Ghostbusters movies , he was responsible for writing and co-writing classic movies such as ¬†Animal House, Groundhog Day, Stripes, Caddyshack, National Lampoon’s ¬†Vacation and Analyze This. He laos wrote for TV and worked on several episodes of the US version of The Office.
With the 30th anniversary of the first Ghostbusters movie coming up this summer – this is very sad! That movie was very popular in my house growing up, as were several of those he wrote the screenplay for! RIP Harold Ramis – your legacy will live on in your brilliant work!
