Chris Hemsworth has joined the cast of Paul Feig’s upcoming female-centric “Ghostbusters” reboot. Feig confirmed the news on Twitter that the “Thor” star will play the team’s receptionist.
Hemsworth essentially takes on Annie Potts’ Janine Melnitz role from the original, and joins a cast that includes Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon as the Ghostbusters team.
Though known primarily for action roles, Hemsworth is branching out into comedic fare with an appearance in this Summer’s road trip comedy sequel/reboot “Vacation”.
Filming on the new “Ghostbusters” kicks off soon ahead of a July 22nd 2016 release.
