Ghostbusters II Hidden Cameos

 By Paul Rudoff on Aug. 4, 2009 at 11:55 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 2
I was watching the movie last month and noticed a few things that I didn't notice before. There are a few "cameos" that may have gone unnoticed by many. The list below doesn't include credited cameos, such as Bobby Brown, Jason Reitman, Catherine Reitman, Cheech Marin, or Judy Ovitz (wife of former CAA talent agency boss Mike Ovitz, who was the agent for Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis and Reitman at the time). Screen caps have been cut down, DVD time codes in parenthesis.

Nakia & Top Cat (10:51)

Hanging on the walls of the television studio office where Peter films World of the Psychic are photos from real television series. The only two that can be made out clearly are Nakia (1974) and Top Cat (1961). These can be seen in the widescreen version on the left of the frame as Peter walks out just after doing his show.

Peter Mosen (1:07:16)

The guy on the left in the foreground, dining with the woman (Judy Ovitz) who will eventually get slimed moments later, is Peter Mosen. He's an old school Ghosthead, who was profiled in The Real Ghostbusters magazine, and represented the Ghostbusters for NOW Comics at Comic-Con in August 1988.

Ivan Reitman (55:10)

I bet you never noticed this one before! I've been watching the movie for 20 years and noticed it for the first time this year! The guy on the far right in the blue jacket is none other than director Ivan Reitman. He had a voice cameo in Ghostbusters (as Zuul and Slimer), but decided to put in an "in the flesh" appearance in the second film - which is only fitting seeing as how he had his kids do the same. Oh, and how do I know that that is Mr. Reitman? Well, it's pretty much an exact match for a shot of him on the set of the movie as seen in the Electronic Press Kit:

I don’t know if it’s been stated anywhere else but in the latest Empire magazine they confirm that Porn Legend Ron Jeremy can clearly be seen in the HD version of the original Ghostbusters movie just after Peck shuts down the containment unit.

Stuart - Proton Charging broke that news way back on April 11, 2005.

Nice to be credited when they didn’t in the film, please correct the spelling of my last name “Mosen". Thanx!

Hi Peter

Thanks for visiting my site. I’m so happy to see the OG (original Ghosthead) with us in the Ghostbusters online community. I’d love to chat with you some time. If there’s anything you’d like to contribute to my site or the online community, please feel free to share.

I corrected the typo I made in your last name. Funny thing is that I spelled it correctly above the photo and misspelled it in the following paragraph.

By the way, a couple of months ago I submitted a credit for you for the Ghostbusters II page at the IMDB. They didn’t add it. Since you have a page there, and have many uncredited roles in the resume you posted there, you might want to attempt to submit all of those uncredited roles for the related movie pages. It’ll make the movie pages more accurate, and help bring people to your page, which is especially good if you’re still in the biz.

– Paul
