Biography:  Harold Ramis was first known to most of us on TVs "SCTV".  His major character was goofy, sleazy Moe Green, the Station Manager of SCTV.  Ramis did a lot of funny skits, but didn't have a whole lot of regular characters.  He was only on the show for the first season.  Moe Green was written out of the show as being kidnapped by the Lutonian Liberation Front, which was a funny ending for him.  This character was great, and Ramis leaving would have really hurt the show, but along came the new Station Manager, Andrea Martin's bizarre, raunchy Edith Prickley.  Edith became one of the series most popular characters. 

    Ramis has done little acting work since SCTV, concentrating mostly on writing for such huge hits as:  "Animal House" (1978), "Meatballs" (1979), "Caddyshack" (1980), "Stripes" (1981), "Ghostbusters" (1984), "Armed & Dangerous" (1986), and more.  Incidentally, his most famous acting role is Dr. Egon Spengler in the Ghostbusters movies.  In more recent years (this being written in 2009) he's made a return to acting and always seems to be in quality projects.  MORE COMING SOON!
