Rick is a veteran Canadian actor who became famous during the 80s as he was a part of the cast in Second City Television. Soon the man became a household name and was gained global fame. His blockbuster Ghostbusters was one of the biggest milestones in his career. However, he kept a low profile after his wife’s demise from cancer in 1991. The man singlehandedly brought up his kids and devoted time to his family. Soon, we will see him reprise the crazy investor Wayne Szalinski in the movie Shrunk. It is the sequel of Honey I Shrunk the Kids that got him fame and critical praises.
