- Tip: Navigate with your left and right arrow keys2/24/14: Harold Ramis, perhaps best known as Egon Spengler from the hit Ghostbusters film series, has died of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis. A member of Chicago's famous Second City comedy troupe, which also produced talents like Chris Farley and Ghostbusters co-star Dan Aykroyd, Ramis won accolades long after the success of the supernatural comedy series for his writing turn in the classic comedy Groundhog Day. Ramis also had a hand in writing National Lampoon's Animal House (which would launch the career of Jim Belushi), National Lampoon's Vacation, and Stripes (in which he also co-starred).
Far from a slouch later in his career, Ramis also directed the comedy hits Analyze This and Caddyshack, as well as episodes of NBC's "The Office". This on top of appearing in supporting roles in several Judd Apatow movies like Knocked Up and The 40 Year Old Virgin.
Ramis died in his hometown of Chicago at age 69.
