Remember season 2 of Netflix's Stranger Things? The adorable kids dress up as the Ghostbusters!

The 1984 movie starred Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, and Harold Ramis as parapsychologists who took down ghosts all over New York City. The stars went on to star in another sequel together.

And he may even be starring in the 2020 "Ghostbusters" movie! 

Aykroyd was well known as a star on 'Saturday Night Live' and along with John Belushi, he took the "Blues Brothers' act on the road, even making it into a band and 1980 movie.
