Who ya gonna call? Chris Hemsworth!

Ladies, if there is anyone in the world that you’d want to answer your calls about a spooky ghoul haunting your house wouldn’t it be Chris Hemsworth? The 31-year-old Aussie actor, most notable for his role as Thor in Avengers: The Age of Ultron, will be playing the receptionist in the remake of the 1984 film Ghostbusters. As if this decadent news isn’t sweet enough, the reboot features an all-female cast.
The afterlife exterminators are back with a release date set for some time in 2016. The first installment of the film featured Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson as the main characters. The film was one of the most successful comedies in the 1980s taking in over $240 million in the U.S. alone. The second film for the franchise, Ghostbusters II, although funny, didn’t do as well in the box office as its predecessor.
After rumors of a third installment stretching back to the 90s, many people gave up the hope that there would ever be another Ghostbusters. To the surprise of many, the reboot, which will be directed by Paul Feig, might give the original a run for its money. Another rumor was that the reboot would feature a female cast. Well that rumor has been confirmed! The gender-swapped cast includes funny girls Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. McCarthy, who broke the box office with her new movie Spy earlier this month, seems to be Hollywood’s new it-girl. The 44-year-old has proved that nothing can stop her. The occasional TV actress and comedian got her major break in the 2011 film Bridesmaids. As for Chris Hemsworth, we’re sure the hunk will have his female counterparts drooling by the time the director yells action. Hemsworth was voted People’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2014.
For the cast of the reboot, they all have big shoes to fill. As stoked as we are for a remake of the classic, we hope it’ll live up to all the hype. With a pack of funny heroines and the world’s sexiest receptionist, deep down we’re sure it’ll do just fine. #whoyagonnacall?
