Dan Aykroyd’s Role In ‘Ghostbusters’ Revealed



With a lot of news and publicity coming out about Paul Feig’s upcoming remake of Ghostbusters, there have been a lot of questions about the supposed cameo from original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd, who played Ray Stantz in the original two films. Well, according to Indie Revolver, his cameo has now been brought to full light.

According to the site, Aykroyd will NOT be reprising his role as Stantz but will instead be playing a taxi cab driver who is hailed by Kristen Wiig. Upon seeing her, he yells out the iconic line, “I ain’t afraid of no ghosts!” before peeling away. Wiig, in frustration yells back something similar to, “That’s a double negative! That means you ARE afraid of ghosts!

And there you have it. That’s what Paul Feig is doing with Aykroyd for the new film. Is it a nice nod to the originals? Sure. Is it clever? I guess so. Is it a waste of talent and opportunity? Absolutely.

I really hope they do something unique and original with this. The Ghostbusters universe is so ripe for interesting and engaging stories.
