In a tragic turn of events, filmmaker and comedian Harold Ramis passed away earlier today. According to reports, Ramis has had issues with a auto-immune inflammatory vasculitis for four years; and it seems that things took a turn for the worst.

Ramis' resume speaks for itself. He was best known for his films in the 80's. Ramis both wrote and star in the comedy hits Stripes and Ghostbusters as well as its sequel Ghostbusters 2. Ramis was not only know for his work as a writer and a actor but a director as well. Ramis made his directorial debut in the 1980 film: Caddyshack. He would also go to direct another 80's comedy: National Lampoon's Vaction. In later years, Ramis work was less scarce. Ramis starred along Seth Rogen in the 2007 movie Knocked Up. In 2009, Ramis returned to the director's chair in the comedy Year One.

Ramis was famous for his comedies, but he no doubt had a career full of variety. His skills in the business would no doubt be missed as the movie world has lost great talent today.

RIP Harold Ramis.
