|Occupation||Actor, comedian, television host|
|Known for||Winston Zeddemore (voice)|
Arsenio Hall originally played the voice of Winston Zeddemore in the first three seasons of The Real Ghostbusters cartoon show. Arsenio Hall tried out for the part of Winston with other voice actors including Ernie Hudson, the actor who played the character in the movies Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. Amazingly, Arsenio Hall was actually chosen for the part instead of Ernie Hudson.
Arsenio Hall is an actor and stand up comedian. He had a talk show called The Arsenio Hall Show where audiences cheered him onto the show chanting, "woof woof woof," with a trade mark arm pump. Arsenio was once quoted as saying that he was going to kick Jay Leno's butt in ratings with The Arsenio Hall Show against The Tonight Show. Arsenio's most notable acting role is next to Eddie Murphy in Coming to America as the prince's man servant.
