'Moranis has since done voicework for a few animated projects including 2003 film Brother Bear and TV series The Animated Adventures Of Bob & Doug McKenzie but not appeared on camera since the Disney franchise.He also starred in Frank Oz directed sci-fi musical Little Shop Of Horrors in 1986 in addition to 1989's Parenthood and 1983's Strange Brew.Success: The original film was so successful that Rick returned for sequel Honey, I Blew Up The Kid in 1992. In 2020, it was announced that Honey, I Shrunk the Kids star Rick Moranis will appear in the new chapter in the family favorite film series — one that Joe Johnston, who had directed the original 1989 movie, was already on board to direct. So I took a little bit of a break. Why would I do just one day of shooting on something I did 30 years ago”.Now aged 66, recently Moranis appeared – or was, more accurately, heard – in 1980s sitcom The Goldbergs, voicing Lord Dark Helmet. 12.9k Followers, 695 Following, 99 Posts - See Instagram photos and videos from Rachel Moranis (@rachel.moranis) Rick Moranis, 67, has made a rare appearance on the new Disney+ show Prop Culture ... Rachel and Mitchell. After almost a quarter-century, we’re more than ready to say: welcome back, Rick Moranis. Sadly, in 1990 Rick's wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, and in 1991 he died leaving widower Moranis alone with the two children. If you grew up in the 80s, you’re more than familiar with a comedic actor named Rick Moranis. 'I hope it’s terrific. The kind of former superstars who, if you were to see them out and about on the street today, you might even just pass them by.There are few better examples of this kind of 80s superstar than one Born in Toronto, Canada in 1953 to a Jewish family who originated in Hungary, Frederick Allan Moranis had a largely uneventful Ontario upbringing.Beginning his career in entertainment in the mid-1970s as a Toronto radio DJ, Moranis went by the name Rick Allan across three different wireless slots.It was at the beginning of the following decade, however, after he had starred in a number of TV comedy pilots and radio comedy specials, that Moranis got his real break in showbusiness.Invited to join the cast of SCTV (Second City Television) – essentially Canada’s answer to Saturday Night Live – Moranis shot to international fame in 1980, alongside fellow future comedy legends Steve Martin, John Candy and Martin Short.Moranis became known for a number of sketches, including The Great White North, in which Moranis co-starred with Dave Thomas as one of a pair of stereotypical, beer-drinking Canadians.The sketch led to Moranis making his theatrical debut in 1983 with cult comedy classic Strange Brew, which found Moranis and Thomas reprising their Great White North roles for the big screen.Having dipped his toe into cinema, a flood of roles came for Moranis in the 80s – as Seymour Krelborn in Little Shop of Horrors, as Morty King in Brewster’s Millions, as Nathan Huffner in Parenthood and as Barry Nye in Club Paradise.Released in 1984, Ghostbusters went on to be the 6th highest-grossing movie of the decade, making $13.6 million on its opening weekend and $23 million in its first week, setting studio records at the time.A veteran of sketch comedy, Moranis was well known at the time for his improvisational skills; as such, the Ghostbusters party scene, where Louis first becomes possessed by Vinz Clortho the Keymaster, was almost entirely improvised.With Moranis on a roll, in 1987 there was the sci-fi spoof Spaceballs, which was co-written, produced and directed by Hollywood comedy legend Mel Brooks.The film saw Moranis star alongside Brooks himself, as well as Bill Pullman and John Candy, and gave Moranis one of his best-loved roles as Lord Dark Helmet.Still, it was one film in particular that cemented Moranis as one of the biggest and most unlikely film stars of the 1980s.Starring Moranis in the lead role of Wayne Szalinski, an inventor who inadvertently miniaturises his children using an experimental ray gun, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids made $222 million on a budget of $18 million.With Moranis at what would prove to be the peak of his career following Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, more lucrative roles followed.There were sequels: Honey, I Blew Up the Kid in 1992 and Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves in 1997, as well as the Disney theme park spin-off Honey, I Shrunk the Audience!Then, Moranis’ last major role came in 1994: he played Barney Rubble, alongside John Goodman’s Fred Flintstone, in the live-action feature film adaptation of The Flintstones.The film wasn’t well-received by critics, but still proved hugely successful at the box office, bringing in $341 million.The films Little Giants and Big Bully would follow in 1994 and 1996, with the latter constituting the last time Moranis would appear on the big screen, before he left Hollywood behind for good.In the early 1990s, a family tragedy caused Moranis to pull away from the bright lights of Hollywood to concentrate on his family.Married since 1986 to costume designer Ann Belsky, with whom Moranis had two children (Rachel and Mitchell), Moranis was left suddenly widowed when his wife passed in 1991.Sadly, Belsky died of cancer that year, and though Moranis attempted for a time to continue making movies, ultimately he decided to leave the public eye to focus on being a full-time dad.
The world missed Rick Moranis.. Now, for the first time in more than two decades, the actor is coming back to the screen.
