Harold Ramis, the actor, writer and director dead at 69

AMERICAN FILM FESTIVAL IN DEAUVILLEHarold Ramis, the actor, writer and director whose films include “Stripes,” “Ghostbusters,” “Groundhog Day” and “Analyze This,” has died. He was 69.

His death was caused by complications related to autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a condition Ramis battled for four years, according to United Talent Agency, which represented Ramis for many years.

For more than 40 years, Ramis was a leading figure in comedy. A veteran of the Second City troupe in his hometown of Chicago, he was a writer for “SCTV” and wrote or co-wrote the scripts for “National Lampoon’s Animal House” (1978), “Caddyshack” (1980), “Stripes” (1981), “Ghostbusters” (1984), “Groundhog Day” (1993) and “Analyze This” (1999).

The films often featured members of his generation of comedy talents — veterans of the National Lampoon’s recordings, “Saturday Night Live” and “Second City TV” — most notably Ramis’ old comedy colleague and fellow Chicagoan Bill Murray.

Radio Shack Super Bowl commercial: ‘The 80’s called, they want their store back’

One of the best 80’s-inspired Super Bowl XLVIII commercials has to be the one from Radio Shack.

Radio Shack mocks and reinvents themselves all in one swoop. Since most people think they still carry only outdated electronics and batteries, it’s great to see them show the world they’re not the same Radio Shack people think of from the 1980’s.

They did a great job calling their nay-sayers out, in a fun and entertaining way, featuring famous eighties stereotypes such as Mary Lou Retton, Hulk Hogan, Alf and a host of other 80’s characters. Q*BERT even makes an appearance along with the California Raisins and Chucky.

Bravo Radio Shack! Thank you for bringing back 80’s nostalgia in your 60-second ad spot during the Super Bowl this year!

James Spader to play Ultron in the next ‘Avengers’

James SpaderJames Spader has been tapped to play Ultron the next time the “Avengers” assemble. The 80’s actor best known for such movies as Pretty in Pink, Less Than Zero, Sex, Lies, and Videotape and recently the TV show Boston Legal was announced to play the Marvel villain Thursday.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon, “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” will show a more humanized — but just as fearsome — villain, Whedon told Entertainment Weekly.

In the Marvel universe, Ultron is a sentient robot that has an incredibly wide range of abilities, coming equipped with super-speed, super-strength, flight, mind control and a coma ray, to name a few. Whedon’s Ultron won’t be quite as versatile, and the filmmaker is imagining a less robotic bad guy.

“The Avengers: Age of Ultron” will debut on May 1, 2015. In the meantime, Spader will be on the small-screen as well: The three-time Emmy winner stars in NBC’s “The Blacklist,” which premieres September 23.
