[ # ] Rick Moranis puts on the Dark Helmet for The Goldbergs tonight!
May 9th, 2018 under Rick Moranis, The Goldbergs

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.
