Goddamn You, Dan Aykroyd

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.

    Raiders of the Lost Ark.
    and I’m going to go slit my own wrists now, none of you have to do it.

    I’m very sorry.

    Has Akroyd done anything worth checking out since the mid-80s? Seriously, I’m asking, because I love earlier Dan Akroyd but after seeing Blues Brothers 2000 I’m not willing to attempt anything more of his without encouragement.

    He actually got an Oscar nomination in 1990 for playing Jessica Tandy’s son in law in Driving Miss Daisy. And he was pretty good in Sneakers and (in a small roll) Chaplin in 1992. But the last 20 years? Yeah, not so much.

    Oh, because you mentioned it: “Driving Miss Daisy 2: You Got Hokes!”
