Beloved actor Rick Moranis has been out of the spotlight in recent years, but he’s now back in the news after he was assaulted on the streets of New York. Fortunately, Moranis is said to be okay after the attack.
On Thursday morning, at 7:30 AM on Central Park West near 70th Street in New York City, the 67-year-old actor was attacked by an unknown assailant. CrimeStoppers posted footage of the incident and the suspect walking from the assault.
Moranis’ rep has stated that the actor is doing “fine.” THR reports that the comedy icon went to the hospital with pain in his head, back, and hip before going to a station to report the crime.
Moranis unofficially retired in 1997 after his wife died of cancer to take care of their children, though he recently came out of retirement to star in a commercial for mobile provider Mint with fellow Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds. He also made an appearance in Disney+’s Prop Culture in the Honey, I Shrunk The Kids-centric episode, but for the most part, Moranis has shied away from big public roles.
Twitter users have been posting messages in support of the Spaceballs and Ghostbusters star–with some humorous results.
