Dan Aykroyd has more than 45 years as a professional actor.

The BBC series “The Boss” features a different business leader every week. This week we spoke to Dan Aykroyd, the Canadian spirits entrepreneur and actor.

He is such a beloved Hollywood star that it would be fair to say that many movie fans will be relieved to learn that Dan Aykroyd did not follow through on his initial plan to become a priest.

Rather than follow the path of spirituality, he turned first to live comedy and then to acting.

One of the roles for which he is perhaps best known is that of the character who fought evil spirits in Cazafantasmas “, a 1984 American film that was a box office success.
