The only point i was trying to make is that it shouldn't be hard to get him to appear in your movie/videogame/barmitzvah/hentai video if you offer him the right pay. That's all.

everyone has a price.

Again, not commenting on whether doing anything for pay is good or bad in and of itself or unusual in his profession or a even a bad idea.

The point is not that he only does good stuff or bad stuff. The point is that he will apparently do anything for pay.
I don't think there's a single actor that hasn't been in a few embarrassing movies in his career. I forget who it was that said something along the lines of "you take whatever work you can get", but I think it's true. Even the more selective actors (like Murray) have to "just do it" from time to time to keep the paychecks rolling in and keep their name in the public eye. All of those fancy cars don't pay for themselves, you know.

Well, in his defense "Garfield" probably sounded like a good idea at the time. I'm not saying I liked it, but in the early stages it probably sounded like it might be a decent flick. When they were pitching it, I could see someone thinking "hmm, this might be a cute kids movie" or whatever.

And something like that, you don't know how everything fit together until you see the final product at which point it's too late.

But Garfield 2, I don't know what they were thinking.

"their game concept looks better than terminal reality's version."

They're doing a Ghostbusters-esque game called TimeO, so we'll see who had the better ideas.

Remember Garfield & Garfield 2?

Uh, remember Lost in Translation and The Life Aquatic?

That's not UE3. It's whatever proprietary engine Zootfly uses.

I remember around 1996 when they decided to do a new GhostBusters cartoon (Extreme Ghostbusters), based on the old one. I think it went along the lines of Egon mentoring a group of young ghost busters at the old firehouse. I only caught a few episodes (it stunk).

Anyway, one episode had me scratching my head, wondering if the actors were annoyed at the cartoon.

In one episode they had statues of Peter and the likes wearing the (original) proton packs. This was plot-important because their new tech was out of order so they grabbed the packs from the statues.

What's weird is that for some reason they had to digitally mask the faces whenever the statue was in view, like when the news shows a suspect being hauled into a police car.

I have to wonder if someone was overly protective of their image or the Ghostbusters property? Or if something stupid went on with the studio.

I don't think it's very hard to get Murray to do anything these days. Remember Garfield & Garfield 2?

The Ghostbusters game looks pretty lame. You know the product is in trouble when they say the motivation for making it is because the logo is well known.

The more I see of Ghostbusters, the more pessimistic I become. It looks like a pretty mediocre, run of the mill third-person shooter. What attracts me to it is the contribution by the cast (getting Bill Murray to do this is incredible). Originally, they had said it was written by Dan Akroyd, but from the trailer it looks more like it was written by some guy at Terminal Reality and they asked Akroyd if it was good, and he gave some input. Not quite the same thing.

Anyways, Gears of War 2 looks pretty cool.
