    Ghostbusters Blu-ray Cover - Why no mention or pictures of Ernie Hudson?

    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.

    Banned

    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 no pics or mention of Annie Potts

    isnt the secretery (Moranis's bird) in it just as often and she isnt mentioned either think your looking for something that isnt there....

    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?

    cough

    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?

    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!

    It's defo racist - Ray Parker Jr did the theme to Ghostbusters and he's black.
    But it says Blue Ray on the cover!
