So it was Ghostbusters Day yesterday – the original movie turned 32 – and in celebration the stars of the originals and the reboot appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Show (below). Oh, and check out the new official poster above.
So, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts and Ernie Hudson joined the new cast of Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones on the hot seat(s) and everyone was looking at Bill Murray.
Murray famously for years put off starring in Ghostbusters III, so Kimmel asked him why he decided to star int his movie in which he plays a character not related to his original Ghostbuster, Peter Venkman.
Murray, as always was calm and collect: “I thought about it for a very long time. Like, many, many months. No, that’s not right. I was seriously thinking about this for years, really … It kept eating at me, and I really respect those girls.
“When you see the film, and you’ll delight in the film, it sort of rumbles along in the beginning. You’re going, ‘Oh God, are they going to pull this thing off?’ I felt like a stepfather to the whole thing. There is no quit in these girls. This is a tough movie to pull off, because it’s a big concept. There’s a lot on the plate – there’s a lot of expectation.”
You can see the video below but does Bill Murray’s endorsement do enough to win you over? Or are you excited for this anyway?
