Egon Spengler 'Kind of Helped' with Ghostbusters Game Dialogue

Actor Harold Ramis didn't only play Dr. Egon Spengler in Ghost Busters, he co-wrote the script. The now rotund Ramis has also penned movies like Groundhog Day and Analyze This.

Add to his impressive resume, "kinda helping on changing Ghostbusters game dialogue." For the upcoming video game, Ramis told MTV, "Dan [Aykroyd]consulted a lot on the story. I just kind of helped him change the dialogue."

That's not all, Ramis also lent his voice to the multi-platform Ghostbusters game, which is out this June. "Fortunately the voice still fits," he quipped. "The uniform unfortunately doesn't it."

Ramis, who's not a gamer, seemed surprised that the game script clocked in a 250 pages (compared to the typical 120 page film script). "You need all these alternatives so it took forever," he added. "A lot of it is just yelling, 'Look out! Throw that trap, rookie!' Stuff like that." Watch out Shakespeare!
