He said in an email message: ''Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my brilliant, gifted, funny friend, co-writer/performer and teacher Harold Ramis. May he now get the answers he was always seeking.''
''He possessed the most agile mind I've ever witnessed. He always had the clearest sense of what was funny and how to create something in a new clever way ... Harold had an extraordinary impact on my career and I loved him like a brother.''
Steven Martin tweeted: ''So sorry to hear about the death of Harold Ramis, a comedy master. 'Ghostbusters', 'Groundhog Day', and more.''
Some of Harold's last work was directing episodes of the US version of 'The Office', prompting one of the show's stars, Rainn Wilson to write: ''Was honored to have gotten to work with Harold Ramis, the Buddha of Comedy. Brilliant, humble, radiant. We've lost an icon.''
Another one of the show's former stars, Steve Carell, wrote: ''Harold Ramis. Funny, gracious, kind hearted. A joy to have known you.''
Harold is survived by his wife, Erica Mann Ramis, their two sons, Julian and Daniel as well as his daughter, Violet Ramis, with former spouse Anne Plotkin.
