by on Feb.24, 2014, under Obituaries

The Chicago Tribune reports that actor/writer/director Harold Ramis passed away early this morning due to complications from a rare autoimmune disease, surrounded by family. He was 69.

Ramis is perhaps best known for his starring roles alongside Bill Murray in Ghostbusters and Stripes, but he also wrote the screenplays to those and several other Bill Murray vehicles including Meatballs,Caddyshack and Groundhog Day, but also directed the latter two as well as National Lampoon’s Vacation, and most recently had directed several episodes of The Office. He got his big break while with the Second City performing group as the first head writer for their SCTV program, which he also performed in.
