The Horror Geek presents: Alyssa Milano signs on for Ghostbusters videogame

Alyssa Milano Signs on for Ghostbusters Video GameIf you're my age (37 later this year) then odds are you and your friends spent a large portion of your childhood lusting after Alyssa Milano. Let's face it—was there really any other reason to watch Who's the Boss? I rest my case.

Variety is reporting that Milano has been hired to voice the female lead in the game, which sees the return of the entire original cast, minus Sigourney Weaver (who declined the offer to return). When asked about replacing Weaver, Milano offered the following:

"Obviously, fans of the movie are going to miss Sigourney Weaver. I have so much respect for that character in the movie that I hope I do the position that she is in justice. I was just flattered to be asked to be part of Ghostbusters."

Milano will be voicing the character of Dr. Ilyssa Selwyn, the brainy guest curator of a "World of Gozer" exhibit at the Natural History Museum.

Ghostbusters hits video game retailers on June 16th. It's available for the PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC, and Nintendo DS.

Milano is a nice replacement

Regarding Milano and my childhood: I may be in the minority, but I have always had a hard time not seeing her as the 12-year-old little girl that she was in the show. She has since outgrown those pigtails and jumpsuits, but I passed on the Milano boat and instead would check out her contemporaries like Jessica Alba. :)

Regarding her role: I really wonder if that many people will notice a difference. I mean Weaver had her supporters, but I don't think of her (or Rick Moranis) when I think Ghostbusters.

It would have been nice to get all of the cast together, but who cares really? As long as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is there, its all good.
