He's perhaps best known for his role as Winston Zeddemore in the Ghostbusters franchise.

    He's appeared in: 


  • Older Than They Look: He doesn't look like he's in his 70s. To quote the Tfwiki:
    Hudson is the only living original Ghostbuster who isn't currently a doughboy. In fact, he's friggin' ripped.
  • Only Sane Man: Much of his roles depict him in this trope, but in a world where supernatural is the norm. Ghostbusters (1984) shows that if there's a steady paycheck in the job, he'll believe anything thrown at him.
  • Star-Making Role: invokedAs Winston Zeddemore.
