Well, I'd say Ernie Hudson is a mortal lock to get booked, but how many other GB related celebs can they realistically get that will warrant running a show around it? Ramis is dead, Murray won't do it, so you're left with maybe Ackroyd as far as headliner-level guests go?

I mean, it's apparently being held at the Sony lot, so I imagine there's some novelty to that, but for a celeb autograph type of con, I don't see the guest list being a huge draw.

Annie Potts is a possibility. I could see her doing this.

Aykroyd and Reitman have done a promo for this already, so I'd say they're in. Considering Ghostbusters was set and filmed in New York city, having this in California is unfortunate. I get they've got the phony set at universal and all.

I mean, Akroyd would be pretty great as a headliner, he's just nothing that is getting very many of us to Cali.

If in NY/NJ, you could do pretty well with an Akroyd/Weaver headline, with Potts, Hudson, etc, filling it out.

While I consider Dan virgilized, objectively speaking he would be a good headliner for any con.

That being said, Rick is added I'd fly. But only Rick.

Bill in any clothing would be damn near flight worthy, if he wasn't a raving lunatic liable to storm off and never return at any time during the booking.

To me, seems like another foolhardy attempt at Wizard to do what other conventions already succeed at. In this case, it's show-specific reunion, which Creation, despite my displeasure, have done well with both current and past franchises, for years. Creation have done contracts whereby they can hold multiple such events around the country, and not just a one-off.

PS: Here's the promo video. No, I cannot expect Moranis or Murray to take any part in this.

Rick Moranis basically retired from acting after his wife died. Though I heard he recently came out of retirement and did something but I dont recall what it was.

He voiced Dark Helmet for Goldberg's TV show, as well as random voice overs and a comedy album during the past decade or so. He also appeared in Toronto for a MacKenzie Brothers reunion with Dave Thomas as part of a charity show last year. The man has no need for money, nor to attend this con.

I know that I always say "Never say never" but after what I observed of Moranis back in May, I don't see him doing any shows anytime soon. However, if he *were* to do any it would most likely be this one above all else.
