Ernie Hudson to Cameo on New ‘Ghostbusters’

Ernie Hudson, star of the original Ghostbusters, will appear in the reboot of the movie, and can be seen in this photo with the all-female cast that includes Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Kristen Wiig.

Hudson joining the cast is a bit of a surprise, given that his initial reaction to the news that director Paul Feig would be doing a remake with comedic actresses was less than positive.

He told the Telegraph, “I love the idea of including women, I think that’s great. But all-female I think would be a bad idea.”

However, Ernie has since changed his opinion on the film, saying, “Four fiercely funny, foxy, females busting ghosts … phenomenal!”

Ghostbusters is scheduled to open in theaters on July 22, 2016.
