Rick Moranis suckered punched in the head by a stranger in Manhattan
October 2nd, 2020 under Rick Moranis. [ Comments: none ]
Beloved actor Rick Moranis was suckered punched in the head while in walking in Manhattan yesterday at around 7:30a. According to WCBS, after the attack, the 67-year-old actor visited the hospital because he was experiencing pain in his head, back, and hip. After he was released, he went to the local precinct and filed a police report.

The NYPD was able to acquire the surveillance video of the unprovoked attack, and then they posted it online and shared it with the news. They are asking the public if they know who the attacker is. If you do, then you are eligible for a $2,500 reward.

If you know him, contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS. We need to get the man who attacked a national treasure.

Last month, Moranis was seen in an ad for Ryan Reynold’s Aviation Gin. The actor is also expected to star in a reboot of Disney+’s Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.


Ryan Reynolds found Rick Moranis!

Rick Moranis has not acted in front of the camera for us to see his face in almost 25 years. However, Ryan Reynolds used his charm to coax the beloved actor out of hiding to find out the world is not a little shop of horrors. Well, it is this year, but anyways…

Whatever Reynolds did to do it, is worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize (suck it, Norwegian nut who nominated Donald Trump). This is what we all needed to see to conclude that 2020 is not all bad. This way, we all got to experience some blue heaven today. Hopefully, it will last long enough for us to get Spaceballs 3: The Search for 2.

Oh, Deadpool’s mobile company Mint is offering an unlimited plan that starts at $30. I heard a rumor it comes with Reynolds’ private phone number. It doesn’t, but it should.


Rick Moranis comes out of retirement
February 12th, 2020 under Josh Gad, Rick Moranis. [ Comments: 1 ]

Back in 1997, Rick Moranis retired from acting to raise his two children, even though he was in some of my favorite movies. You know because it is all about me.

Anyways, Deadline revealed today that he is taking on his first scripted on-camera role since then. He will be reprising his role as Wayne Szalinski in the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids sequel Shrunk. The last movie he did was Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.

The Disney movie will be centered around Josh Gad, who is playing his shrunken son all grown up. No word how they will handle the loss of Marcia Strassman, who played the mom in the first two movies, but not the third. The actress passed away in 2014.

Moranis has done some voiceover work and guest appearances, like on The Goldbergs, since he stayed away from the limelight. Maybe now that he is going to get the yummy taste of acting again, he will finally consider doing Space Balls 3: The Search for 2.

UPDATE: SlashFilm says that is mostly like the plit for Shrunk, “Aware that the family ties have loosened over time but seemingly afraid to confront anyone directly. He has been tinkering alone in his attic for decades, dealing with the grief of losing his wife. When we first meet him, he has accidentally shrunk himself and is flying around on a shrunken drone — seemingly lost in a continuous of tinkering and experimenting that often puts himself and his family in jeopardy. He later reveals he shut himself away to try and invent a solution to help shrink Diane’s cancer but found it hard to cope when he ran out of time. His guilt and shame is palpable. Through the crisis of the kids getting shrunk, the truth emerges and the bonds begin to redevelop between him and his kids.”

How screwed up is that they are doing that storyline when both his real and movie wives died from cancer? That and its sounds like an upbeat movie will be depressing. I am not even sure if Moranis is enough for me to go see it now.


Did Rick Moranis just reveal that Spaceballs 2 is not happening?

For almost 30 years, we have patiently waited for a sequel to Spaceballs and it looks Rick Moranis killed all hopes for it. Even though, Mel Brooks said he working on it last year.

Last night, Moranis voiced Black Helmet on The Goldbergs and the actor got a lot of love from the fans. Therefore, after the West Coast airing of the sitcom, he tweeted, “Thank you for all the love Twitter. Its not Spaceballs 2, but it’s the closest we’ll get :D.” Does that mean it is not going to happen? We do not know, but it looks to be the case.

This post is not all little shop of horrors. Moranis is taking off his hiatus chastity belt to appear on Netflix’s SCTV comedy special along with Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short and Dave Thomas that will stream next year. It will be nice to see what he looks like under the Black Helmet these days because I miss the sweet face that gave us Seymour Krelboyne on the big screen.

Side note, if you live in Toronto or will be there this weekend, then you can still get tickets to Sunday for An Afternoon with SCTV moderated by Jimmy Kimmel.


Rick Moranis puts on the Dark Helmet for The Goldbergs tonight!
May 9th, 2018 under Rick Moranis, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

The Goldbergs got Back to the Future’s Lea Thompson to ride a Hoverboard, Weird Al Yankovic to put on a mustache and a wig, and now they are doing the impossible. It has been 20 years since Rick Moranis took a hiatus from acting, and since then he has been very very very selective about any role he might take on.

Well, I guess the Schwartz is strong with Adam F Goldberg because he got the beloved actor to reprise his Spaceballs role on The Goldbergs tonight at 8p. Sadly, we will only hear Black Helmet and not see him. But still, it is a start.

Especially if Goldberg has his way. That is because the show creator says, “I’ve been a lifelong fan of his [Moranis] work and became obsessed with having him reprise the role on my show. As an added bonus, maybe this even gets Spaceballs back in the conversation and I can get my dream of helping make a sequel!”

For almost 30 years, Mel Brooks has been teasing us with a sequel and it is about time we get it. Now would be the perfect time, since that other franchise is about to put out its last movie. Who doesn’t want Spaceballs 3 the Search for 2? That is what someone once told me it is going to be called and I believed them. Same way I believed that Jews in Space was going to be part of the History of the World sequel. It took me some time, but I finally got that joke.

Seriously, I love that Goldberg gets to live out his childhood fantasies with the sitcom. The best part is he treats them all with the respect they deserve. Can’t wait to see what he does with Val Kilmer next week.
