‘Ghostbusters’ star Dan Aykroyd has been revealed as a very generous tipper for leaving a hefty tip after his dinner at an eatery.
After dining with a mammoth party of 34 at popular Lower East Side eatery Stanton Social, Aykroyd, 57, left a whopping 1,900 dollars gratuity on a 4,200 dollars bill.
“He and his friends were drinking martinis and wine all night,” the New York Post quoted one delighted diner as saying.
“He was a really nice guy. He took pictures with anyone who asked,” the diner added.

And my friend Dbiloo is actually working on a Dan site and I'm helping her a little bit (especially for pictures,lol). So if there's any sections you would like to see on the site, let it know in the comments! :) And which pictures would you like to see on the layout? (High quality!)

I've been reading this board for a while, so I decided to officially "join" and then introduce myself. I'm 31 and first developed a crush on Dan when I was 11. I honestly thought I was the only one who thought he was hot!

My incredibly long-winded story...Collapse )

Harold Ramis chatted with Heeb Magazine about among other things, the plans for and prospective timeline of Ghostbusters 3. Here's what he had to say:

Something's going to happen. Dan [Aykroyd] did write a spec GB3 screenplay a few years ago, but no one was motivated to pursue it. Now, 25 years after the original, there seems to be some willingness to proceed and apparently a substantial public appetite for a sequel. We'll introduce some new young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future ... GB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011 ... Oh, and I have two one-of-a-kind Ghostbuster yarmulkes sent by fans.

Sony has recruited Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg "The Office" writer-producers to work on a new installment of the 1980s franchise that starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Harold Ramis as bumbling ghost-hunting scientists.

The original filmmakers, including director Ivan Reitman, and cast are aware of the project and involved in its development. Some original cast members might be involved, but the focus will be on a new cast of Ghostbusters.

Air Check from 3 to 4 PM April 12, 1982. Henry Paul Band with Dan Aykroyd.

Billy Branch & Dan Aykroyd (1983)

The first video is priceless!!

He was reputedly "smarter than the average bear" and it seems that he is more durable too. Yogi, the hirsute cartoon hero who once stole picnic baskets from the campers in "Jellystone Park", is to make his comeback in a tailor-made Hollywood movie.

Yogi Bear, which is expected to start shooting next month in New Zealand, will blend live-action with CG animation in its bid to resuscitate the defunct TV favourite. Variety reports that Dan Aykroyd is in negotiations to provide the voice of the tie-wearing bear. Justin Timberlake is lined up to co-star as his sidekick Boo-Boo, while Anna Faris will play a documentary film-maker who visits the park.

Yogi Bear first appeared on TV screens in 1958, before being graced with his own dedicated slot, The Yogi Bear Show, in 1961. Produced by Hanna-Barbera and sponsored by Kellogg's, The Yogi Bear Show revolved around the star's endless efforts to outwit the officious Park Ranger Smith. Nothing, it appeared, spurred Yogi to action more than the scent of a stray "pic-a-nic basket".

The Warner Bros production is being scripted by Brad Copeland and will be shot by Eric Brevig, who directed Journey to the Centre of the Earth. It will, in fact, mark Yogi's second foray into the wilder realms of the feature-length movie. In his younger, more supple days, he starred in a 1964 cartoon movie entitled Hey There, It's Yogi Bear.

This may night be the reunion you were looking for (Ghostbusters 3), but Dan Aykroyd’s most recent film gig is still pretty eventful. The actor will once again join director John Landis in a feature film and this time it’s for the upcoming adaptation of Burke and Hare. The leads have already been cast with Simon Pegg and David Tennant in the title roles, so this should be interesting.

According to Bloody Disgusting, Aykroyd, has joined the cast of the Gothic comedy in an undisclosed role. This will be his eighth feature film with Landis so it will be a comforting return to the big screen for the actor. Burke and Hare centers on a pair of Irish immigrant murderers in early 19th century Edinburgh who sold on the corpses of their victims to the local medical college. Along with Pegg and Tennant, Aykroyd will also join Bill Nighy in the film.

With the exception of the two protagonists, everyone else’s character descriptions are being kept under lock and key. What’s up with all the secrecy? This is supposed to be a black comedy, so perhaps it adds to the ambiance of the whole thing, either way the film is shaping up quite nicely. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Landis or Aykroyd in the limelight, not to mention the excitement of Mr. Tennant co-headlining a feature film? Best Doctor Who ever!
