What Happened To Rick Moranis?

Fri Feb 01, 2008 12:44 am

I'm watching "Ghostbusters" right now and I am just wondering what the hell happened to Rick Moranis? He was in tons of flicks in the 80's and 90's but now has seemed to drop off the earth. He always reminded me of my dad, not sure why.

Also...Chevy Chase...where the hell have you been?

He ended up on the Planet of the Apes with Col. Sanderz and President Scrooge when Mega-Maid self-destructed, remember?  wink

President Scroob. The easy way to remember it is that it is Brooks, as in Mel Brooks, spelled backward.

As to what happened to Moranis, he semi-retired from acting to focus on taking care of his kids after his wife died. He apparently has a singing career now.

Oops. The point remains that it was a change of the order of the letters in Brooks' name.

From the wiki link,

I pulled out of making movies in about '96 or '97. I'm a single parent (Moranis' wife died in 1991 of liver cancer), and I just found that it was too difficult to manage raising my kids and doing the traveling involved in making movies. So I took a little bit of a break. And the little bit of a break turned into a longer break, and then I found that I really didn't miss

That is sad, I understand why but sad.

What is interesting is that when he was doing SCTV he was actually a pretty buff looking guy, but by the time he did the accountant in Ghostbusters he had skinnied down to more of a "Nerd" look.

Acting I guess.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
