July 1, 1952 On this day in Horror History, Daniel Edward Aykroyd was born. A limitless talent that has blessed many of beloved films over his career, Aykroyd has starred in such classics as Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Coneheads (1993), Evolution (2001) and the film which his acting and writing brilliance helped bring into cult infamy, Ghostbusters (1984).
“My attitude has always been, "Hey, wouldn't it be funny if -." If this makes me laugh, maybe somebody else will laugh at it, too. That's really where I've always come from. My whole thing is to entertain, make people laugh and to forget about the real world for awhile. It's not always easy doing that. I'm never completely happy with anything I've done. If I've been successful with 80 percent of everything I've done, then I'm doing all right by the audience and myself.” Dan Aykroyd Horror Central
