The Ghostbusters star will feature in upcoming U.S. TV show Born to Explore to scour for fossils in Alberta and help excavate a new species of dinosaur, the hadrosaur, which was discovered in September (11).
Programme host Richard Wiese says, “The natural beauty of Alberta took our crew’s breath away. Filming in the dinosaur bone bed was a rare opportunity and to discover a new dinosaur species was sensational.”
Wayne’s World actress Donna Dixon and Criminal Minds star Matthew Gray Gubler will also join Aykroyd at the site.
The celebrity dig, which will air on 5 November (11), will also help raise funds for the creation of the Phillip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum.
