Rick Moranis isn't Retired; Turned Down Ghostbusters Cameo


-Basically did this interview due to being surprised at people being so vocally upset that he's not showing up in the new Ghostbusters. "I hope [the reboot] is terrific. But it just makes no sense to me. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago?"

-He's thinking about returning to film/tv but admits that he's picky. "I took a break, which turned into a longer break," he says. "But I'm interested in anything that I would find interesting. I still get the occasional query about a film or television role and as soon as one comes along that piques my interest, I'll probably do it. [But Ghostbusters] didn't appeal to me."

-He has no regrets about taking that 18-year long break in order to raise his kids. He doesn't keep up with comedy trends so doesn't know who the big names are, and he has no plans on joining social media. He wishes he knew how to edit his Wikipedia page so that it wouldn't say he's retired.

-Spends his time on various writing and voice projects. Spent three hours in an Apple store because he downloaded iOS 9.1 to an old iPad.  Lives in the Upper West Side and still gets recognized on the street.

favorite Moranis role?
