Murray wasn’t on speaking terms with the proton blaster anyway, after he endured such a hard time just wearing it on the set of “Ghostbusters: Afterlife.” But things got even worse when co-star Ernie Hudson turned suddenly and accidentally plunked Murray in the head with his proton blaster. “I hit him on the head with my gun as he was getting up,” Hudson said in an interview with Vanity Fair.
Yes, the accident did leave a mark on Murray’s head, but he only left the set for a few minutes, and upon his return, the mood seemed jovial. “Yeah, I mean, what’s a concussion anyway?” Finn Wolfhard asked Murray jokingly upon his return, and the co-stars engaged in some banter. “What’s a concussion?” Murray asked as if to say, ‘I’ll show you what a concussion is,’ and Murray taunted Wolfhard as if he intended to give his co-star a one-on-one demonstration with his own proton blaster.
“Close your eyes,” Murray playfully warned Wolfhard. Hudson then tried to apologize again, but Dr. Venkman was good to go, and only the actor knows just how much Tylenol he required. “It’s okay,” Murray explained, and the Hollywood veteran shook off the cobwebs. “I learned a valuable lesson!”
