Having spent years in Hollywood, Ernie Hudson sure knows his game well. He is talented, grounded and a firm believer in his thoughts. Hudson became a household name as Winston Zeddemore in the 1984 film, Ghostbusters.
In an exclusive interview with IndiaToday.in, Ernie Hudson spoke to us about the prep required to appeal to the newer masses and also added that he wants to be a part of an Indian version of Ghostbusters.
Ernie Hudson spoke to IndiaToday.in about bringing new flavour to Ghostbusters: Afterlife. He told us, “Ghostbusters: Afterlife is almost 40 years after the original movie. Winston is the character that I play in Ghostbusters.
He has changed like we all have. He’s become older, he’s stopped being a ghostbuster and gone into life. He’s become a successful businessman, but he loves being a ghostbuster. In the movie, when the world is threatened, he puts on the jumpsuit and gets back out there.”
He further added, “For me, I had reached a point where I wasn’t sure if they’ll make another Ghostbusters movie and when Jason Reitman sent me the script, I was really excited.
Once I got there, put on the jumpsuit and saw Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, I felt very emotional and honored to visit the people I love and respect. And to get a chance to do another Ghostbusters was very exciting.”
