Moranis To Reprise His “Spaceballs” Role

Having effectively quit acting two decades ago, “Ghostbusters” and “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” star Rick Moranis will make a rare voice-only appearance in an upcoming episode of “The Goldbergs” sitcom.

In an episode that pays tribute to 1987 Mel Brooks comedy “Spaceballs,” Moranis will reprise his iconic villain Dark Helmet in the episode which will air May 9th.

Moranis voices the character in one of young film enthusiast Adam Goldberg’s dreams, as Adam (Sean Giambrone) ‘encounters Dark Helmet storming his bedroom to battle with the Schwartz’.

Adam “promises to get a sequel to Spaceballs produced before waking up.” “The Goldbergs” creator Adam F. Goldberg reportedly worked for several weeks to get a commitment from Moranis.
