Actors were at the show promoting Ghostbusters, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1984. Aykroyd came out first. He was very excited about meeting the iconic host, but also very hopeful about the upcoming movie.
It’s got lots of laughs lots of special effects and it’s a family picture. We’re very very excited it’s going to be a good one.
Aykroyd then veered off course into a conversation about his grandfather and the paranormal, just before Bill Murray came onstage. Murry quite warmly introduced himself to the host and made fun of Aykroyd.
Dan’s a wreck. This is uh this is very serious. We’d be working and he’d be talking about these things and bring out pictures of his great grandfather and all this kind of stuff.
Then the actors started talking about the film. They had no idea just how famous and iconic the film would become for generations to come.
