Harold Ramis passed away today at the age of 69. The actor, director and writer had an immeasurable impact on modern comedy, but he was perhaps best known to audiences as Dr. Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters. In addition to being a well-known comedian, Ramis influenced comedy behind-the-scenes. He was the director of now legendary comedies like Caddyshack and Groundhog Day and wrote the scripts for films such as Ghostbusters and Meatballs. Contemporary comedy heavyweights such as Judd Apatow have cited him as a major comedy influence and Ramis even appeared in a cameo as Seth Rogen‘s father in Knocked Up.

Harold Allen Ramis was born on November 21, 1944 in Chicago, Illinois. His parents were shopkeepers and Ramis was attracted to comedy from an early age and started writing parody plays in college. After a brief stint working in a mental institution in St. Louis, Ramis returned to Chicago where he started writing and performing comedy–most notably with Second City. When he briefly left Second City, his replacement was a young comic actor named John Belushi. Upon his return to the troupe, Ramis re-invented himself as a deadpan foil to Belushi’s boisterous style of comedy.

Ramis eventually became involved in such famed comedy productions as The National Lampoon Radio Hour and SCTV. The success of these two productions led to Ramis being asked to write the script for National Lampoon’s Animal House, which in turn led to Ramis’s work on the films Meatballs and Caddyshack. Ramis’s biggest claim to fame, however, came when he veered away from the frat house comedy scene and when he co-wrote and co-starred in Ghostbusters.

Ramis continued to work until very recently on various film productions. In addition to his own productions, he had a cameo in Knocked Up as Seth Rogen’s father and directed several episodes of The Office.

He is survived by his wife, Erica Mann, and his three children. His legacy will be influencing generations of comedians and being remembered as someone who brought joy and laughter to people’s lives.

Guardians Of The Galaxy’s Chris Pratt: From Lovable Loser To Hunky Hero

We’ve always had a big crush on Chris Pratt. How can you not? He’s adorable, he’s funny, and he can play the guitar! Let’s just say, though, that our crush went into major overdrive when Pratt transformed himself into a superhero for Guardians of the Galaxy. We’re not just talking about the “chunky to hunky” shirtless selfie seen all over the world. Pratt didn’t just get into the physical shape of a hunky hero; he also got into the mental state of a swaggering space pilot. And let’s just say we’re liking it. We’re liking it a lot.

Comic book movie fans were shocked when Marvel announced that Parks and Recreation star Chris Pratt would be starring as Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, in their space opera, Guardians of the Galaxy. It wasn’t that Pratt didn’t have the right amount of comic nerve to play the cosmic wiseacre. With a history of playing adorably schlubby losers, he just didn’t seem to be the right physical type.

Pratt, who actually started his career playing a hot athlete on Everwood, knew that his appearance might play to his detriment. He recently confessed to MTV News that he didn’t want to audition for Peter Quill because he felt “fat.” Lucky for us, he did try out for the role and he turned out to be the hero that director James Gunn was looking for. Pratt went on a grueling workout routine and cut out beer to get himself into “superhero shape.”

Pratt’s hard work definitely paid off, though. We know because the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer shows off Pratt’s crazy abs in a moment of gratuitous male toplessness that we have to tip our hats to.

Chris Pratt was always a super cutie. Now he’s a superhero hottie.

The 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover models were unveiled last week, and today is the day you can get your hands on a copy all your own. Lily Aldridge is celebrating gracing her first SI cover by sharing shots of her experience on Instagram, while Ireland Baldwin is making a case for why she should be included in 2015′s racy roundup.

Three-day weekends don’t have to be chilly or boring, as proven by Miranda Kerr‘s casual towel placement and Michael B. Jordan‘s mingling with various celebrities at NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans. Side note: If Drake and MBJ collaborate on anything (music, movies, a line of chicken wing restaurants) we may collapse into a puddle of tears, never to be heard from again. Please let this happen!

It’s a new year, which means new ‘dos. Pals Cara Delevingne and Ellie Goulding watched in awe as Taylor Swift chopped off some locks in London (and then posed for photos) while Katy Perry solicited the opinion of her biggest fan: her dog. To find out what you may have missed as far as celebrity gift guides and Valentine’s Day wardrobes are concerned–Vanessa Bryant, everybody–be sure to check out our weekly roundup of the best and most potent pics from the ‘gram.
