Rick Moranis attacked in random assault in New York

Rick Moranis, the star of “Ghostbusters” and “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” was assaulted in Manhattan on Thursday, and the attack was recorded by a surveillance camera.

Moranis was hit on the head by a stranger on Thursday at 7:30 am on Central Park West near 70th street, the NYPD has confirmed.



As the footage shows, Moranis was simply minding his business when the suspect attacked sending the 67-year-old actor to the ground.

Moranis went to the hospital after the attack and reported pain in his head, back and hip. After his release, he reported the crime at the precinct.

“He is fine but grateful for everyone’s thoughts and well wishes,” his rep told The Hollywood Reporter.

The search is currently underway for the suspect, who could be seen walking away.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Moranis is returning to the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” franchise with a new film at Disney called “Shrunk.”

The film will be a sequel to the 1989 original that spawned a franchise including “Honey, I Blew Up the Kid” and the direct to video “Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.” The first two films in the franchise pulled in more than $281 million at the box office worldwide.

Moranis appeared in all three films and starred in the original as scientist Wayne Szalinski who creates a ray gun that accidentally shrinks his children down to the size of bugs.

Moranis is also known for his appearances in “Ghostbusters” and its sequel, “Spaceballs” and “Little Shop of Horrors.”

Here’s the security video. You can’t really make out much.

Rick Moranis is a national (US and Canadian) treasure. Hope they can identify the guy that did this.

Thank you 'moderator.' You simply could have ignored and not answered in the thread.

The guy must have found out that Rick's coming out of retirement to make Honey, I Sexually Abused the Kids.

I'm missing a reference somewhere here.

Are they remaking the Honey... series with the cast of Baby Driver?

IN CUSTODY!

"A homeless man charged with sucker-punching actor Rick Moranis has a history of mental illness, and a long string of arrests for walloping strangers in the face, authorities said Sunday night.Marquis Ventura, 35, was arrested Saturday for allegedly pummeling the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” star, and on Sunday was ordered held without bail pending a psychiatric evaluation."

We really need to put more funding into public mental health, especially increasing beds for secure inpatient care.

Hey, I'm no fan of "Club Paradise" either, but isn't this a bit extreme?

What’s the world come to when you can’t even ask 100 people if they’re the Keymaster without statistically getting an ass kicking for it?

Or we could simply invent a shrinking machine. Prisons would never be full again.

Prisons would fit on a conference room table. But they would be just as overcrowded.
