Chris Hemsworth Cast as Receptionist in Paul Feig's 'Ghostbusters'

Chris Hemsworth

This is just perfect. Director Paul Feig has revealed on Twitter early casting news for the new all-female Ghostbusters movie he's currently working on. Feig has announced that Chris Hemsworth, the God of Thunder Thor himself!, will be playing the receptionist in Ghostbusters. Our presumption is this means he's taking on the same role that Annie Potts played as Janine in the original films, which is a perfect swap of the character. Mostly because Hemsworth is becoming funnier (did you see the Vacation trailer?), and yet he's still a talented actor who can take on challenging roles like Rush and In the Heart of the Sea. And because we know Feig is great breaking down usually badass actors, like Jason Statham in Spy. See the tweet below.

The upcoming Ghostbusters movie, directed by Paul Feig, will star Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones as the new Ghostbusters. Reportedly, the villain will be a "creepy mechanical genius" but the role isn't confirmed yet. There's also the role of Martin Heiss, a professional debunker of the supernatural who tries to disprove the antics of the Ghostbusters after some videos of theirs go viral. The project is currently casting and gearing up in pre-production, as they're hoping to still pull off a July 2016 release next summer. We'll be keeping an eye out for updates, but now that Paul Feig's Spy is in theaters he's probably fully committed to Ghostbusters. Does this casting make you more interested in this?

I need either a set photo or a trailer to pass final judgement.

Glad to see after years of hard work Chris is finally getting a job as a receptionist in Hollywood. Way to go Chris! Besides; if a tall, jacked Australian with a perfect face can make it in Hollywood, anyone can!

They can get an A-list like Christian Bale and it still wouldnt make a difference. This will be a trainwreck.

This movie keeps getting goofier and more God awful with each press release. That's all we need is that Jenner guy/girl to do a cameo and its full tilt disaster, if its not there already.

This is how NOT to make a feminist movie. Start with the idea of making a feminist movie.

Good to see so many people hate it. Hope it bombs horribly...

I am a feminist. I think this is all female cast unnecessary and weird. Weirder even is how they felt the need to keep the racial ratio with Leslie Jones as a female Winston. Who are they going to choose as the female version of Rick Moranis though? By the way I find this reboot just as ridiculous as the hate it's getting for being a supposedly "feminist" movie. It's a Ghostbusters reboot! Not a Suffragette period piece. You guys should stop acting like someone just punched you in the d*ck... *sigh*
