Police also tweeted out the video of the unprovoked attack.

Rick Moranis, the star of "Ghostbusters" and "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids", was assaulted in Manhattan on Thursday, and the attack was recorded by a surveillance camera.

A video is going around of Hollywood legend and all-around good man Rick Moranis being punched in the head by an unidentified man as he is just walking down the street.

The star can then be seen lying on the floor as the man leaves the scene.

Moranis reportedly "suffered back, hip, neck and head pain" after the attack and took himself to the hospital afterward, the AP says. He then reported the incident to police at the 20th Precinct. The NYPD shared the surveillance footage via their Crimestoppers socials and encourage you to contact them with any tips on who the assailant might be.

Beloved 1980s brainiac Rick Moranis was the victim of an apparently "random unprovoked assault" in NY on Thursday.

"He is fine but grateful for everyone's thoughts and well wishes", the representative said.

Rick first rose to fame when he appeared in the 1983 film Strange Brew.

Moranis, a native of Canada, is best known for his role as Louis Tully in the 1984 hit "Ghostbusters", and as Wayne Szalinski in "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" and sequels "Honey, I Blew up the Kid" and "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves". However, in 1997 he walked away from the film industry to raise his two children as a single father, after his wife, Ann Belsky, died of cancer in 1991.

Rick has only done voicework since for animated projects including the 2003 film Brother Bear and TV series The Animated Adventures Of Bob & Doug McKenzie.
