Ernie Hudson claims he was severely underpaid for his role in 'Ghostbusters'
Ernie Hudson, the 77-year-old actor famous for his role as Winston Zeddemore in the original "Ghostbusters" movie, has been candid about the impact that the 1984 comedy has had on his career. In a recent interview, he talked about how "Ghostbusters" was the "most difficult movie" he ever did, and how he felt "pushed aside" amid the movie's remarkable success. Hudson's character, Winston Zeddemore, was initially supposed to be an equal part of the ghostbusting team, which included established comedy stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis. However, his character was diminished, and his compensation was smaller than his co-stars. Hudson's own lack of industry savvy and representatives that may not have had his best interests at heart contributed to his lack of leverage as "Ghostbusters" fever kicked in.
Ghostbusters Suite at The Curtis Hotel in Denver, Colorado
A recent family staycation took us to Denver's Curtis Hotel to stay in the Ghostbuster suite. My 5 year old son, Everett, is a big fan of the movie and we couldn't wait to see his reaction to the themed room. Our first impression was the “Slimmer Green” flooring that started moving under our feet as well as a wall mural featuring all the characters. Another memorable moment was catching Vigo the Carpathian on the bathroom wall. Some extra highlights include the impressive 13th-floor city views and checking out the other themed floors. Grabbing breakfast at the Corner Office next door was the perfect way to finish off the weekend before heading home. The Curtis has numerous themed rooms -- everything from a comic book inspired room to a chick flick themed room -- so take a peek at the website to see rooms are available if Ghostbusters aren't your style.
