Bill Murray (as Ghostbuster) and 'Back to the Future' Stars Honored at 'Scream 2010' (VIDEO)

Bill Murray Accepts Award as Ghostbuster on 'Scream 2010'Spike TV reveled in the 1980s last night. After David Spade rolled out in the 'Back to the Future' DeLorean, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) reunited onstage in celebration of the film's 25-year anniversary, at 'Scream 2010' (Tue., 9PM ET on SPK), Spike TV's annual awards show honoring sci-fi, fantasy, comics and horror.

Then, receiving the award for Best Cameo (in 'Zombieland'), Bill Murray stepped out in his 'Ghostbusters' uniform (with proton pack), telling the audience it was "all that was left that was clean." He thanked the "living" involved in the film and recognized "the undead -- the ones who technically are gone, passed on... but still live on forever," paying tribute to comedians including Gilda Radner, John Belushi, Rodney Dangerfield, John Candy and Peter Boyle.

Sigourney Weaver on "Keeping a Hedgehog" in Her Private Parts (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Sep 28th 2010 6:37AM
Sigourney Weaver on 'Keeping a Hedgehog' in Her Private PartsLet's start off with the good news. Actress Sigourney Weaver had her first film role in Woody Allen's 'Annie Hall' -- which won the Best Picture Academy Award, and which is one of the most famous movies of the 1970s. That's the good news. The bad news is that Sigourney only had a cameo in that movie: in fact, she didn't even get to utter a single line of dialogue. Which is kind of lame, considering that she went on to be such a famous actress.

On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), Weaver explained how she got such a lousy debut movie part. It seems that Woody Allen wanted to give her a much bigger role in 'Annie Hall.' Unfortunately, Sigourney was busy starring in an "off-off-Broadway" play that her friend had written. And what was her part in this play, you might ask? Well, get ready for things to get weird. Weaver had the part of "a little girl" who "kept a hedgehog in her ... vagina." Great.

The 'Ghostbusters' Appear -- at a Mall? (VIDEO)

The 'Ghostbusters' Appear -- at a Mall?There's something strange -- in the neighborhood. There's something weird; and it don't look good. So who you gonna call? ... Why, the mall cops, of course.

On 'Mall Cops: Mall of America' (Thu., 10PM ET on TLC), four very strange men appear in the parking lot. They're dressed as the Ghostbusters, and they've arrived in a custom-built Ghostbuster-mobile. Officer Johnson of the mall police shows up to check out the scene. He's protecting the Mall of America, the biggest shopping center in the nation. But he seems a little flummoxed by the Ghostbusters' arrival. He says this: "There's not anything in the training manual about seeing Ghostbusters in the mall." Good point!

Bill Murray Gets Goofy Over 'Ghostbusters' on 'David Letterman' (VIDEO)

David Letterman, Bill MurrayBill Murray was on 'Late Show With David Letterman' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) tonight, and he had his leg in a sling and his foot up on Dave's desk.

That would be interesting enough, but even wackier was his sparkly purple top, striped shorts, and Russian snow hat. He told some story about 'Ghostbusters,' but frankly, we can't even remember what it was.

Watch the video after the jump.

Ghost Intervention joins the ranks of paranormal stalkers

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Dec 21st 2009 3:02PM
Ghost Intervention ain't afraid of finding nothing.I confess I've written more than my fair share of posts complaining about the never-ending march of paranormal, ghost busting shows haunting TV these days. You know the shows I refer to -- the "documentaries" promising to prove the existence of ghosts without ever finding anything resembling actual proof.

Every time I've written something bemoaning the arrival of another such show, I think it has to be over soon. There can't be another hour of clods stumbling around in night vision and reacting to sights and sounds the audience doesn't get to experience.

But, they keep coming. They keep finding nothing. But, evidently, people keep watching them. Now, we have Ghost Intervention -- running through December. The 4-part docu-series from TLC "chronicles a case manager and a team of women with psychic abilities as they try to help different families who are struggling with paranormal activity in their homes."

What's Hot on Inside Movies: Kooky Christmas Capers and More

by Chris Jordan, posted Dec 18th 2009 7:00PM
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas over on Moviefone's Inside Movies.

That's because the busy elves over there have re-imagined classic Hollywood movie posters as inappropriate holiday movies. Hey, you looking at the Christmas-themed movie poster for 'Taxi Driver'? Then we have Christmas classics re-imagined as action flicks. Take a gander at Rambo as Scrooge.

Also on Inside Movies, Ivan Reitman confirms that there will be a Ghostbusters 3 and that Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver are on board -- but not in a way you'd might expect.

Eat a mushroom for the fallen Mario

by Danny Gallagher, posted Oct 15th 2009 11:29AM
The late Capt. Lou Albano wore many hats in his career (some wrestlers wear hats). But in my nostalgia filled mind, none of those hats were greater than the red service cap with the giant "M" on it.

The famed wrestler played both the live action and animated version of video game hero Mario on the top rated syndicated kids' show The Super Mario Bros. Super Show, along with actor Danny Wells as Luigi who Jeffersons fans will recognize as Charlie the bartender. Mario Bros. is a show I vividly remember from my childhood because my parents never bought me a Nintendo and that just drove me to want and watch anything and everything with the Mario Bros. on it.

Here's my all-time favorite episode because it combined the two things I worshiped as an organized religion: Nintendo and Ghostbusters.

Heroes picks up a Ghostbuster

by Mike Moody, posted Aug 12th 2009 11:02AM
ernie hudson, heroes, oz Former Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson has "seen sh*t that'll turn you white!" I guess that makes him the perfect guy to chase down fugitives in the strange, super-powered world of NBC's Heroes.

The veteran genre actor will join the cast of Heroes next season as Captain Lubbock, a Baltimore cop hunting down another character on the show.

It's good to see Hudson returning to TV. He's a great actor who has turned in some memorable TV performances in the past (HBO's Oz, Desperate Housewives), but he always seems to get stuck working in the B-movie ghetto.

Sigourney Weaver talks Emmy buzz, Ghostbusters and Aliens

sigourney weaver prayers for bobby lifetimeSigourney Weaver starring in a Lifetime movie? It happened. It's called Prayers for Bobby, and the three-time Oscar nominee is racking up the Emmy buzz for her lead performance as a mother whose life is changed by tragedy.

I spoke with Weaver recently about the film, the Emmy buzz, her next big TV project and more. Here's a preview of that interview:

Weaver on the benefits of working for Lifetime, and other cable networks:

"I think Lifetime, along with other cable networks, show very compelling stories about what it is to be human in a way that a lot of films don't now, except for small independent films. They're interested in a smaller canvas and I think those stories are very helpful for people and I think that they bring us together."

Eliza Dushku as a Ghostbuster?

by Mike Moody, posted May 20th 2009 6:45PM
Eliza Dushku ghostbustersFormer Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd is talking about strapping on the ol' proton pack one more time for a third Ghostbusters movie. Aykroyd is saying his co-stars from the first two films -- Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver – are also on board, and that production could start as soon as this winter.

Aykroyd wants the new movie to introduce a team of five younger Ghostbusters, including several female members. He's hoping to land Dollhouse star Eliza Dushku and Alyssa Milano to be a part of the "next generation" of Ghostbusters.

All I want for Christmas is 50 hours with The Real Ghostbusters - VIDEO

by Mike Moody, posted Nov 26th 2008 12:05PM
the real ghostbustersFinally. Time Life has released the long-awaited The Real Ghostbusters: The Complete Collection on DVD. And it's frackin' loaded. The mammoth $179.99 set features all 147 eps of The Real Ghostbusters, plus more than twelve hours of extras, all packed in a box with hologram panels that resembles the firehouse from the show. Looks like I'm gonna have to sell my car. For $179.99.

I won't go on about how this animated spinoff of the Ghostbusters movie was the best thing on Saturday morning in the late 80s and early 90s (but it was), or how it was also the coolest thing to watch in syndication after school every day (but it was), or how Egon Spengler helped me overcome my own personal boogeyman (but he did). I also won't waste your time writing about the awesome Real Ghostbusters-inspired comics I used to create as a kid (but they were awesome), or how I still reference my favorite eps with my friends in casual conversation (but I do).

But I will ask you, dear TV Squad reader, to help make my Christmas wish come true by persuading my wife to buy me this box set. Because I really don't want to sell my car for $179.99.

The Middleman: The Ectoplasmic Panhellenic Investigation

The Middleman and Wendy(S01E08) "Guy I Don't Know is starting to look like Guy I've Known My Whole Life." - Noser

Yo, Wendy Watson. Thanks for wearing the skimpy dress in the very first scene of the show.

For the most part, scenes with two attractive young people flirting with each other while spouting flippant duologue has been done to death. For some reason that I can't quite identify, the scenes in tonight's show worked for me. Maybe it's the huge crush I have on Natalie Morales, maybe it's the fact that The Middleman is chock full of that kind of dialogue, maybe it's because I still feel bad about what happened to Brendan Hines on The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Everybody Hates Chris: Everybody Hates Cutting School

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 20th 2007 9:45AM

chris rock(S02E15) I never skipped school when I was young, mostly because I was a good kid, but also because I attended school in a small town and it was likely that if I skipped, someone would notice.

In this episode, Chris and Greg skip school to see Ghostbusters, which is understandable since that movie was a huge phenomenon when it came out. We all had the shirts and the Ghostbusters Trapper Keepers and that ubiquitous theme song running through our heads incessantly. I think some teachers would actually yell at us if didn't skip school to go see it: "why the hell are you kids in class? Get out right now and go see Ghostbusters, it's one of the defining movies of this decade, damn it!"
