It’s a little known fact that I’m a huge Rick Moranis fan. It started with the trio of ‘Spaceballs’, ‘Ghostbusters’, and ‘My Blue Heaven’, obviously, and before I knew it I was binge watching Moranis as a young teen relishing his zany comedic timing.
Later, like all Moranis fans, I wondered how such a gifted comedic actor could just walk away from Hollywood at the height of his creative juices with no fanfare. Like Keyser Soze he was just gone.
Moranis, as it’s now known, quietly retired from showbiz in 1997 to raise his kids and devote 100% of his energy to them after his wife passed away from breast cancer.
Anyway, the only Moranis blip on the radar since then has been a 2006 comedy album, The Agoraphobic Cowboy, that was nominated for a Grammy. So, it’s with tremendous excitement to say you can all go to rickmoranis.com now to order his new comedy/music album dropping May 21st.
Now, if we can just get Moranis to be in a movie. Any movie.
