Max von Sydow, the voice of Vigo has passed away

Image

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of veteran actor Max von Sydow, who supplied the booming, sinister voice of Vigo the Carpathian in 1989's Ghostbusters II, and reprised the role in 2008's Ghostbusters: The Video Game in cameo as the portrait-bound despot.

Von Sydow rose to prominence starring opposite Death in Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal, and amassed a notable list of roles and films, including The Exorcist, Flash Gordon, Dune, Needful Things, Minority Report, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Game of Thrones.

Janine Melnitz returns for QuickBooks



Photographs of a substantial set recreation of the Firehouse office circulated back in early November, leading to rampant speculation as to whether it would serve as part of next year's Ghostbusters Afterlife.

The answer has been delivered by software company Intuit, who'd commissioned Annie Potts to reprise Janine Melnitz for a series of commercials and spots for their accounting program, QuickBooks.
