Paul Feig, director of the upcoming female cast of the Ghostbusters reboot, has tweeted that Chris Hemsworth will be joining the cast as the ladies’ receptionist. That’s right, Thor is going to be answering phones for the ladies. Formerly, Annie Potts was the receptionist in the original films.
Hemsworth joins Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in this gender reversed re-boot. “Those four ladies I have starring in it are so funny and that’s half the battle,” Feig said in a recent interview. “I’m going to battle with my best army I have. My whole crew from all my other movies have come aboard, and some great special effects people have come aboard- I have never really done this level of effects before- and I’m excited.”
Hemsworth was most recently in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and will next been seen in the Vacation remake starring Ed Helms.
Feig’s Ghostbusters will release in July 2016.
