I was lucky enough to meet the man on the 30th anniversary of the Ghostbusters film release at a movie theater across from my childhood home in 2014 at a special screening. One thing I can say about him is he's not only super humble, but totally down to earth. Talking to him was like catching up with an old friend, so I'm sure this experience is going to be a blast. Ernie is expected to re-join former cast members Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Annie Potts in the new Ghostbusters film, which is hoping to be released June 11th, 2021.
