Default Harold Ramis

He wrote all the Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Animal House, wrote and directed Groundhog Day, he acted in Orange County, was Dr. Egon Spengler, and he died today.
It's the worst. But I'm glad he wrote and did all the things he had done in his life, I would be a different person in a world without his films.

I wasn't sure whether or not to give this its own thread, so this makes that easier.

This is the first time an actor death has ever made me cry in my life. I feel a little silly admitting that, but whatever. I didn't know the man personally and I'd never met him, but he helped create something that I adored and lost myself in for many, many years as a child.

I never... I don't know how to word it... I never thought he would die, I guess? That's stupid, because everyone dies, but it is just not anything I'd considered. Or maybe it's just that it is the first time someone famous and technically distant to me has died that it has felt this deeply personal to me. It feels like part of me just thought that he (and Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, and Ernie Hudson) would just live forever, no matter how irrational that is.

I think I can say that, personally and for the first time in reference to a actor death, he will be missed a lot.

May he rest in peace. He made me laugh. And he was my favorite Ghostbuster. I'll be missing him.

When He and Dan Aykroyd got together to write something it was almost always knock out funny. And, like Nami, I adore Ghostbusters beyond all belief. It really is sad to say that in his passing we lost one of the greatest comedy writers to ever live, not to mention one of the most wonderfully deadpan actors I've ever had the pleasure to watch, good lord that upset me.
