All-Female 'Ghostbusters' Reboot Reveals Male Cast Member

(Radio.com) The all-female Ghostbusters reboot of the classic '80s film just found its guy in Chris Hemsworth. On Thursday (June 11) it was announced that Hemsworth, a.k.a Thor, will play the receptionist in the film directed by Paul Feig, a role reversal we can all get behind.

Feig seems pretty excited about the casting too, tweeting a photo of Hemsworth with the hashtag #whoyougonnacall. We all know Hemsworth can pick up a hammer, but now we'll get to see how he does with a phone.

Hemsworth will be the new Annie Potts, who played receptionist Janine Melnitz in the original Ghostbusters. Hemsworth is certainly going to have to up his hair game to compete with Potts.
