Chris Hemsworth to play receptionist in new Ghostbusters movie

on June 10, 2015, 9:15pm

You may best know Chris Hemsworth as Thor in Avengers. His next role, however, couldn’t be more different. Hemsworth has been cast to play a receptionist in Paul Feig’s forthcoming adaptation of Ghostbusters.

In the original Ghostbusters, Annie Potts played the receptionist for the all-male team. However, in Feig’s all-female version, it makes sense to flip genders and give the role to a man. And who better than the man who embodies otherworldly strength in Marvel’s cinematic universe?

Hemsworth joins a cast that stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen WiigKate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. The film, which is inspired by AMC’s The Walking Dead, is scheduled to hit theaters on July 22nd, 2016.
