After ABC’s much-hyped, but less than impressive “Ghostbusters” Halloween episode of Castle (in the end, it turned out to be a one-liner, no cameo), CBS snuck this bit of awesome by us on last night’s episode of How I Met Your Mother. heheh. That just reminded me of Egon attacking Peck. He’s all, “Your mother!” and…. never mind, watch the clip.
The episode, as a whole, is not a bad one, though if you haven’t been watching from previous seasons, you might not be able to make sense of all of the character interactions, but like most episodes, it’s self contained.
Big big thanks to Clay for the heads up on this one.
The omni-present LA cameras of TMZ caught up with Ernie Hudson recently, and talk turned to GB3. Hudson confirmed he’d heard all the same rumours as us, but has not as yet been made a formal offer. All in all, he couldn’t say for certain if the movie would get made, though I don’t know that anyone should expect him to know that.
TMZ doesn’t have embedded video – you’ll have to go to their site to watch it. Sorry about that.
Talking to The Miami New Times prior to appearing at this weekend’s Wizard World Miami Comic Convention, Ernie talked about about why he got into attending conventions and gives a nod to all the GB franchises out there.
You’re coming down to comic con?
I never even heard of these conventions until maybe like ten years ago, and they have them all over the world. I’ve done conventions in Europe and I’ve done them in Asia, they have them everywhere. I don’t do a lot of them. It’s almost interactive where you can literally go there and the person who you saw in Star Wars is there. You can go over, you can say hello, you can connect, you can talk to them. Years ago, if you saw a movie star, you’d never get the chance to come face to face, meet them, have a conversation.
I was in New Orleans, and there’s a New Orleans chapter, all the states have a chapter of Ghostbusters now, it’s amazing how it’s grown. So they all went to dinner, we get a chance to hang out, and get a chance to meet the fans who see the movie, and that’s really a lot of fun. I think for a lot of us actors, we get a chance to go someplace we haven’t been to meet people and it’s a safe environment to do it. If I’m on the street, and came up to me and wanted to tell me about when they saw The Crow, I tend to back up because I don’t know who these people are. I’m looking forward to coming down to Miami, and I haven’t been there in years, so it’ll be a lot of fun.
