Harold Ramis, of SCTV, Ghostbuters, Stripes, and Dozens of Others, Dead at 69

Also, of course, Caddyshack and Groundhog Day.

And of course he was one of several writers on "Animal House." I believe that he wanted to play "Boone," but was perceived as too old for the role, so they hired Peter Riegert, who was, of course, older than Ramis.

Analyze This, the underrated Michael Keaton clone comedy Multiplicity... the guy had a lot of funny in him.

Ramis, a longtime North Shore resident, was surrounded by family when he died at 12:53 a.m. from complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves swelling of the blood vessels, his wife Erica Mann Ramis said. He was 69.

Ramis’ serious health struggles began in May 2010 with an infection that led to complications related to the autoimmune disease, his wife said. Ramis had to relearn to walk but suffered a relapse of the vaculitis in late 2011, said Laurel Ward, vice president of development at Ramis’ Ocean Pictures production company.

There have been many rumblings about a possible "Ghostbusters 3" sequel, although Bill Murray has announced he has no interest at all in such a thing. Without Ramis -- "Egon" -- it would be down to Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson.

Thanks to Tami.
