Television and Early CareerEdit
Rick Moranis got his start on the sketch comedy show SCTV. His most popular character was "Bob" of Bob and Doug McKenzie (with costar Dave Thomas).
After his wife died of liver cancer, Moranis significantly reduced the amount of acting work he took so that he could devote his time to raising his children, effectively retiring. However, he has since stated that he is not averse to taking a role under the right circumstances. It is not known if he will return in Ghostbusters III, but a movie website announced in 2010 that he may be returning.
Moranis is well known for his roles in movies such as Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Spaceballs, and Little Shop of Horrors.
