20 Ghostbusters Easter Eggs You Never Noticed

19. ...As Is Vigo's

You could probably do the same for Vigo, too, from the revelation that while the role was played by Wilhelm von Homburg, all his lines were dubbed by Max von Sydow, and that the character character was based on Vlad III The Impaler and Grigory Rasputin. Fancy right? Oh and then there's the name. Much like how Gozer has two namesakes, Vigo's full name (Vigo Von Homburg Deutschendorf) is an amalgamation: he was played by Wilhelm von Homburg, the twins who play Oscar are William T Deutschendorf and Henry J Deutschendorf II, and their uncle John Denver's real name was Henry J Deutschendorf I.
