I guess that ends any hope of Ghostbusters III coming out.

I don't know if "Fat Egon" would have worked so well for me. I don't know if it had anything to do with his medical condition, but he sure bulked up a bit over the years.

Have you seen Dan Akroyd?  I think he ate the Stay-Puffed Marshmallow Man.

That whole gang (Akroyd, Murrey, Martin) are the age where weight is very difficult to control.  It started for me at around 42.  That's when just breathing seemed to add pounds.  On top of that, it is much harder to lose weight now.  Youth is wasted on the young.  8^)

They also have a number of other strikes against them when it comes to weight gain.  Over 60, not as active as they used to be, cleaned up their drug issues and settling into retirement/grand kids.  All of these add up to lots of extra weight if you are not very, very careful.

I'd rather watch Rocky 100 times than watch a rocky remake (Rocky is one of my favorite movies.)

Please no more remakes!

No kidding !  Rocky is actually a good movie. Not a sequel fan - they're almost always a letdown. +1 to no more remakes.

Was thinking Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, anticipating more Black Swan type scenes

Sorry, we've gotta do better than Miley for Crissy ! I'm thinking more like Scarlett Johanssen. Just sayin'.   :)

Favorite was when he was the dean in Orange County and they mistakenly gave him ecstasy.

Love it for a later movie.  I wore out the VHS of Ghostbusters when I was a kid, then once I was old enough to understand a little more humor (and awesome naked breasts.......RIP John Candy on that note) Stripes!  "C'mon, rhythm! Hut, 2, 3, 4. Black guys help the white guys..."
