A few months ago director Paul Feig announced on Twitter that Chris Hemsworth was cast as the secretary in the new Ghostbusters movie. The role was played by Annie Potts as big glasses-wearing secretary Janine, in the previous movies. Well we finally have our first look at Hemworth's character, Kevin, and it sure seems he will be doing more than sitting at a desk. Riding a motorcycle and wearing a suit means he will probably be assisting in some fieldwork with the crew, played by actresses, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.
According to Variety, Hemsworth initially passed on the part until the role was "beefed up" so I assume the promise of his own ghostbusting suit won him over. I'm a big Chris Hemsworth fan and I'm enjoying seeing him dive deeper into comedic roles when he's not busy playing a god with his superhero buddies.
The new movie hits theaters July 15, 2016.
Are you excited for the reboot?
