Ghostbusters: The Video Game
Terminal Reality Creative Director Drew Haworth came up with a plan B to get Bill Murray on board with Ghostbusters: The Video Game: Brian Doyle-Murray. David Margulies was set to reprise his mayoral role from the movies but his contract was terminated. Doyle-Murray was hired to play the mayor. He was brought in to look at the game and his character. Doyle-Murray was skeptical they did this for all the actors. Terminal created a likeness of him. They talked to him about the game. He asked about his brother. Doyle-Murray liked the game. At the end of the meeting, he realized they wanted him to tell Murray he thought the game was good. Melchior admitted to the ulterior motives. Within two days, Bill Murray's attorney contacted Vivendi with news he agreed to reprise his role. There was a 'dogpile of producers' in the hallway when the call came.
