Steve Guttenberg

I Ain't 'Fraid Of No 'Ghostbusters 2'

... Cause it Never Came Out

Steve Guttenberg can't remember if he turned down the lead role in "Ghostbusters" (as legend has it) ... but there's one thing he's positive about -- there was NEVER, EVER a "Ghostbusters 2."

Steve was so sure about it when we ran into him in NYC last night ... he was willing to place a hefty wager with our camera guy.

Problem is ... "Ghostbusters 2" came out in 1989.

It's pretty shocking considering Gutes is such a legend of '80s movies -- yet seems to have no clue about the sequel (albeit a bad one) to the biggest comedy of the '80s.

Watch the video -- it's possible he's joking -- but he seems really emphatic that the river of slime, Vigo the Carpathian, and the dancing toaster never existed.

We wish, Steve.

It seems to me like he was joking. I always did like him. It's too bad his career dried up.

Just wish they'd drop the Ghostbusters 3 idea. If they make it, it's going to be horrible like Akroyd's Blues Brothers 2000.

If not for Ghostbusters 2 we would never have this:

Too hot to handle, too cold to hold, they're called the Ghostbusters and they're in control!

And by the way Gutes, we'd do well to not remember Police Academy II - XVI.

What? Not only did that movie come out, I bought the soundtrack CD. What a great CD that was! Who could resist Oingo Boingo's 'Love is a Cannibal' or Bobby Brown at his finest? Every track was great. Elton John and Doug E Fresh and his Get Fresh Crew on the same album. Just wow!
