Michael Cera Wants to Play Oscar in Ghostbusters 3
Posted 12.31.09 by reelz
Now that there's word from Harold "Egon" Ramis himself that that there will indeed be a Ghostbusters 3 in 2011, news that it will include both the old Ghostbusters and a younger cast of new Ghostbusters headed by a grown-up Oscar (Dana's baby in Ghostbusters 2) has uber-nerd Michael Cera saying that he wants in.
While there have been no official casting announcements for the next generation of Ghostbusters, Cera has reportedly been campaigning to play Oscar. The actor informed People magazine that during the filming of Year One, he constantly harangued Ramis, the movie's director, about the Ghostbusters franchise and potentially playing a part in the third movie.
I loved Ghostbusters! As a kid, I wanted to be Bill Murray's character. Harold told me lots of stories and I memorized every word.
Obviously this doesn't mean Cera is a shoe-in for a part in Ghostbusters 3, but it is some interesting "rumor" news, and he would make a perfect Oscar....
