Who ya gonna call? According to a story that can be seen here the answer is Dan Aykroid. The actor has reportedly tweeted that he was on set of the new “Ghostbusters” movie to film a cameo appearance. The tweet was quickly taken down leading some to think that his appearance was meant to be a surprise for viewers.
The movie is a reboot of the 1984 “Ghostbusters” that Aykroid starred in and co-wrote. The newest incarnation will feature an all female team of spirit hunters in the form of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. It will also have “Thor” actor, Chris Hemsworth, joining in as the teams receptionist.
So far Aykroid is the only one of the original cast that has been confirmed with a cameo. Fans like Zeca Oliveira are excited that Bill Murray is unlikely to appear since he has been unwilling to reprise his role from the originals for years. Likewise, Rick Moranis is probably out as well due to now being retired from acting. Sigourney Weaver has stated that she would be thrilled to do a quick cameo and it is still possible that Ernie Hudson could also appear.
Aykroid’s tweet has started a number of rumors about what small role he might be playing. So far the most popular is that he will be a cab driver that yells one of the original film’s iconic catch phrases at the new team.
