Sad day for Dr Spengler fans (us included). Actor/Writer Harold Ramis died of a rare autoimmune disease, according to the Chicago Tribune . He was 69. Ramis has an incredible list of credits, but was probably best know as Dr Egon Spengler. Check him out (also remember when people used to smoke in kids movies, wtf?):
Or Ben's Dad from Knocked Up, by those of us not old enough to remember the 80s.
