During Ghostbusters II, Howie Weed worked on the foam latex head of Nunzio Scoleri. [1] When the design for Vigo's demon form was accepted, Weed and the rest of the crew molded and cast the makeup in about seven pieces. Weed played the demon form of Vigo because he was similar in stature to Dan Aykroyd. Weed wore the multi-piece appliance makeup as both the transformed Vigo within the painting and for a subsequent scene when Ray Stantz is possessed by Vigo and momentarily turns into a demon form.
