He just returned to the spotlight, but it seems actor Rick Moranis may not be as welcomed back to the public eye after all, following a random attack in New York City which saw the 67-year-old randomly punched in the face in New York City.

According to the NYPD, the attack occurred Thursday morning as the actor and comedy star, known for his roles in the films “Spaceballs,” “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,“ “Ghostbusters,” “The Flintstones” and “Little Shop of Horrors,” was walking on Central Park West near West 70th Street, when an unidentified male, wearing a black “I Love NY” sweatshirt, struck him in the head with a closed fist and knocking him to the ground before walking away from the scene. The incident was caught on tape by a nearby security camera.

Deadline reports that Moranis sought treatment at a hospital for pain in his head, back and right hip, and later went to report the attack to the police. The man responsible for the attack remains at large.

The attack comes shortly after Moranis returned to the spotlight following a long hiatus that started in 1997, as he forewent live-action roles to focus on raising his two children. His wife, Anne, died in 1991.

However, he recently appeared in a commercial with Ryan Reynolds for Reynolds’ mobile brand Mint Mobile, where the 43-year-old star stated that everyone had gone “too long without” Moranis, who then popped out in the clip to joke that the deal the service provided sounded good and he should get a phone.

He also signed on to a Disney reboot of “Honey, I Shrunk The Kids,” which will be titled “Shrunk,” as well.
