Rick Moranis wants to return to acting

Ghostbuster actor Rick Moranis unofficially retired from making movies almost 2 decades ago, after his wife passed away from breast cancer in 1997, and he made the career change from actor to stay-at-home single parent. Now the eighties star tells reporters that he’s ready for a movie comeback but does not want it to ibe a part of Ghostbusters (he played accountant Louis Tully in the original film franchise). On opting out of a cameo in Paul Feig’s reboot, Moranis told The Hollywood Reporter, “I hope it’s terrific. But it just makes no sense to me. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago?” Instead, he’d rather wait until something “comes along that piques my interest” and draws him out of his 18-year hiatus from onscreen acting (he’s done some voice work in the interim), something he says began as “a break, which turned into a longer break.” Until then, he says he’ll just be attempting to figure out how to edit the part of his Wikipedia page that says “largely retired” and dreading the inevitable day someone green-lights Honey, I Shrunk the Grandkids.
