Well, for those of you who thought Rick Moranis had stopped making movies for good, think again!
The actor took an 18-year hiatus after his wife, Ann, passed away from breast cancer in 1997. He left the industry to focus his time and energy on raising his two kids.

But he insists that he didn't retire way back then — like his Wikipedia page had said — because now that his children have become adults, he's ready to get back in the game, saying:
"I took a break, which turned into a longer break. But I'm interested in anything that I would find interesting. I still get the occasional query about a film or television role and as soon as one comes along that piques my interest, I'll probably do it. [But Ghostbusters] didn't appeal to me."
The 62-year-old, who had starred in the first two Ghostbusters flicks back in the '80s, admitted that he turned down a cameo spot in Paul Feig's female-led reboot. Now, he's explaining why:
"I wish them well I hope it's terrific. But it just makes no sense to me. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago?"
