The Mother Brain Files Underrated Actors Special: Ernie Hudson

I have written about my love for almost all things Ghostbusters on countless occasions for the blog. It still remains one of my all-time favorite movies ever and not one single character is forgettable in it. Yet, when the original was released in the summer of 1984, one actor was left off the poster and most advertisements: Ernie Hudson. As the actor best known for the role of Winston Zeddemore in Ghostbusters 1 and 2, Hudson has had the most prolific career of all the cast. It wasn’t because of the franchise’s success. It was all about paying bills.
