"Ghostbusters" is thirty years old!  The supernatural comedy debuted June 8, 1984 with Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd and Ernie Hudson as the team of ghost hunters.

What actor turned down a role in "Ghostbusters"?

1- Julia Roberts

2- Eddie Murphy

3- Robin Williams











The answer is 2- Eddie Murphy

According to imdb.com, Eddie Murphy was offered the role of Winston Zeddmore, the character played by Ernie Hudson.  It's not like Murphy was twiddling his thumbs.  He starred in "Beverly Hills Cop".  Imdb.com says if Murphy had taken the role, the "Winston" character would have appeared in the film much earlier, so the script was revised so that "Winston" made his first appearance half-way through the film.
