Ernie Hudson = Winston Zeddemore

From the front and back of the cover it's like he's not even in the movie...

It's a whitewash.

Maybe he was blacklisted.

Because he's black.

They couldnt even get his name right on the credits where the characters name is incorrectly spelt 'Zeddmore'.

Little factoid for you there.

Why do I always notice annoying little weird things like this....

racist hollywood:x
banned#7
why no pics or mention of Annie Potts
#8
isnt the secretery (Moranis's bird) in it just as often and she isnt mentioned either think your looking for something that isnt there....
#9
He does only come into it about two thirds the way through, if he'd of been a white actor would it even be an issue?

To be fair, does his character do anything of note in the film?

the character is just there so there are two pairs of ghostbusters at points in the movie where that's required.

pretty sure he's barely in the original release marketing.

Like it or not, there's 4 star names plus Rick Moranis who because he had a subsequent hit (HISTK), is worth popping on the promo material.

If you're going to moan about Ernie, how about Annie Potts?

She isnt one of the Ghostbusters, in the film Ghostbusters.

He is looking for something that isnt there, Zeddemore!

That is correct neither is the staypuft marshmellow man but what has that got to do with anything? The gobby scretary isnt a main character, Zeddemore is one of the Ghostbusters !!!

agree to disagree then.. The actor who played him i have no idea who he is / was granted it it was a young sam jackson etc.. offcourse his name would be on it at the end of the day the names are their to sell putting an unknown actor on it wouldnt do anything to sales IMO people want to play the race card too often too easily

Ive just remembered hes over in the states now doing more work on it. Its probably going to be in the special edition blue ray for 3D HD tvs. Probably a way to milk even more cash out of the fans!
