Why He’s Perfect: The unsung hero of the original, Ramis’ obsessive scientist Egon is even more deadpan than Murray! Spouting incomprehensible technobabble with an entirely straight face, his are the lines you’ll laugh hardest at on a second or third viewing.
A stiff, stern presence, Ramis manages to wring plenty of comedy out of what could’ve been a fairly straight role. Bravo sir!
Essential Scene: The sequence in which he’s forced to babysit a possessed Rick Moranis is a hoot.
