Do Not Make Dan Aykroyd Work With No-Names

Why has Dan Aykroyd only been seen twice on the big screen in the last five years? "I will walk out the door for the paycheck I deserve and working with the superstars," the Yogi Bear star explains to the AP. "Otherwise, I won't work as an actor. I'm sorry. I don't have to, and why shouldn't I get what is commensurate with what my market will bear today? It's not the salary I used to get, and I don't care if I play a supporting part. Fine. I'm reasonable ... But I'm not going to work for nothing, and I'm not going to work for people who are unknown. I can't do it." [AP]
