Rick Moranis Reprises Dark Helmet Role for The Goldbergs


It has taken only 31 years, but Rick Moranis is finally back in black. The star of Ghostbusters and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is reprising his Spaceballs character, Dark Helmet, in this week’s Mel Brooks-inspired episode of ABC’s hit comedy The Goldbergs.

Sadly, that isn’t Moranis’s head under Dark Helmet’s dark helmet. The Canadian actor stepped away from the industry in 1997 in the wake of his wife’s death, and while he’s not officially retired, he hasn’t appeared onscreen in two decades and his last voice-over credit came in 2007. Frankly, it’s a miracle that The Goldbergs managed to score Moranis for even a vocal cameo.
