Bill Murray, Or Maybe A Bill Murray Impersonator, Talks Ghostbusters: Afterlife And Harold Ramis
Bill Murray has made an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ live-streamed website, EllenTube, to talk about his role on the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife–maybe.
The famously unpredictable comedy star showed up for his long-distance interview wearing a panda mask, so the viewer never gets to see his face–and as such, it’s impossible to tell if it was actually Bill Murray, or someone doing a Bill Murray impression. For the sake of this news, we’ll give Bill the benefit of the doubt and assume it’s him talking about Harold Ramis, the star and director of the original Ghostbusters, who passed away in 2014.
Asked about the cast reuniting, Murray says, “we’re missing two great people–we’re missing Rick Moranis and we’re missing Harold Ramis.” He points out that Ramis’ influence is still felt. “They’re greatly missed for so many reasons…but Harold is featured in the story of the movie, so it’ll be very interesting.” Elon Spengler, Ramis’ character, will be integral to the film’s story.
The plot of Ghostbusters: Afterlife concerns the families of the original team, and as Murray points out, Ramis’ own son, Jason Reitman, wrote and directed the film. Whether or not this is really Bill Murray, he seems very fond of Reitman.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is still a while away–originally scheduled for a July 2020 release, it’s now been knocked back to March 5, 2021.
