Ernie Hudson Still Has Mixed Feelings About Playing Winston in ‘Ghostbusters’


“The sad part is the thing that I thought that Ghostbusters would do, which is really kickstart my career into high gear. It never really materialized. I’ve never been told that I’ve gotten a job because of Ghostbusters; I think there have been a few jobs that I’ve lost [because of it]. Since [the movie], I’ve been given and taken advantage of the opportunity to perform a myriad of challenging roles, so what am I complaining about?”

- Fourth Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson – who called the all-female Ghostbusters reboot a “bad idea” last month – explains how Winston went from a fleshed out main character to more of a side note in a new piece for Entertainment Weekly.
