In the new Ghostbusters, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, the receptionist will be played by Chris Hemsworth. Oh please, oh please, let him have the same sort of deadpan reaction to everything that Janine had in the original.

Look, I will give Sony all my money if they put Hemsworth in anything like the costume Annie Potts wore in the first films:

I ask for so little in life, and a pair of ridiculous novelty glasses on Hemsworth would really make my day. If the Internet hasn’t already fanarted this by tomorrow, my faith in you all will be destroyed.

Simply brilliant. For them to do and for him to accept. This is how you build your career outside of the franchise. Ego free roles that actually mock your sex symbol status.

I’m finally feeling better about this. Give me more inspired casting like this and may we’ll have something worth seeing.
