Little Shop of Horrors Director Says He'd Never Heard of Rick Moranis Before Casting HIm

Rick Moranis was a huge star in the 1980s and 1990s, appearing in films such as Ghostbusters, Spaceballs, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Parenthood, and more. Sadly, the actor's wife passed away in 1991, and Moranis ended up taking a break from acting to raise their children. He made a few more appearances in the '90s and did some voice work in the 2000s before taking his last acting job in 2008. Ten years later, he made his first on-screen appearance in an episode of The Goldbergs when he reprised his role of Dark Helmet from Spaceballs. Moranis is often a hot topic of conversation and made headlines last year when Ryan Reynolds brought him out of his long retirement for a Mint Mobile commercial. The actor is also expected to reprise his role from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids in Disney+'s Shrunk. Recently, another iconic Moranis role came up when director Frank Oz spoke with The Hollywood Reporter. Oz directed Moranis in the iconic movie musical, Little Shop of Horrors.
