Goddamn You, Dan Aykroyd

Written by Television

He doesn’t care what anyone thinks, and he’s got the pitch for a Blues Brothers TV series to prove it.

Jeff Giles: First he insists that Ghostbusters 3 will be made with or without Bill Murray. Now Dan Aykroyd says he’s putting together a Blues Brothers TV series.

Brian Boone: “It would be Route 66 meets Glee then it all goes to a hell in a hand basket.”

Yes. That’s exactly what would be happening.

If all this goes well, I’m holding out for The Great Outdoors 2000.

Jeff: Featuring Louie Anderson as the voice of John Candy.

Dw. Dunphy: It goes both ways – Soul Man: The Movie! Have Love Will Travel the Musical! A series of children’s books based on his wasp character from Antz. Heck, he can do a one-man Broadway show based on his cameo in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

A true renaissance man, he is.

Kelly Stitzel: Yeah, this seems like a great idea. Stop it, Aykroyd. Go drink some more Crystal Skull vodka.

Scott Malchus: This idea is about as good as David Soul starring as Rick in the Casablanca TV series back in ’83.

Matt Springer: …I would attend a performance of Dan Aykroyd’s one-man Broadway show as his character from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

Otherwise, yes, I agree.

Dunphy: “And as I saw Dr. Jones flying away on that Lao Che plane, knowing my stolen heart flew with him, I was glad he was about to die.”

Bob Cashill: He should remake Neighbors, co-starring Louis CK.
