Ah, Ernie Hudson. Is there anyone out there who doesn't like this guy? While he still finds gigs, and continues to work, to me he's one of those guys that immediately jets me back to the '80s and '90s -- not to the hair, the awful fashions, or kickass music, but rather to film and television. Remember when... He popped up in Bosom Buddies and The New Odd Couple? Of course, there's also the super-mega-awesome-epic Ghost Busters and Ghostbusters II. Or his stints as Reggie in The Basketball Diaries and Sergeant O'Malley in Airheads. Or Warden Leo Glynn from Oz.

Now Variety reports that Hudson has nabbed himself another quirky role -- this time in James Wong's Dragonball. (You know, based on the anime about this kid named Goku who has gather Dragon Balls and stop Piccolo from taking over the world.) Unfortunately, there's no word on who he'll play. Do any of you fans out there have an idea? Is there a Dragonball Ghostbuster, perhaps? Some sort of cop dude? He plays a lot of those.

Chime in below, and while you're at it -- what's your favorite Hudson role?
