We learned earlier this year that Thor star Chris Hemsworth had signed on to play the new receptionist in director Paul Feig‘s upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. Now, thanks to new photos from the Boston, Massachusetts set, we’ve got a first look at the Chris Hemsworth Ghostbusters character, Kevin. If the jumpsuit is any indication, it looks like Kevin will be a little more hands-on when it comes to ghostbusting in comparison to Annie Potts’ Janine Melnitz in the original Ivan Reitman films.
In addition to Chris Hemsworth, Ghostbusters stars Kristen Wiig as Erin Gilbert, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzman, Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan. The film is also set feature Andy Garcia as the Mayor of New York City, Michael K. Williams as a character named “Hawkins,” Matt Walsh as a character named “Rourke,” and Neil Casey as the film’s villain. New York City’s NY1 news anchor Pat Kiernan is also set to appear as news anchor in the film.
“I’m having a lot of fun playing with genres,” Feig told ComingSoon.net of the new film earlier this year, “…I love the original film, but I also just love the idea of busting ghosts and kind of paranormal warriors. I thought, ‘You know, if I could do this with the funny women I know and kind of just do a new origin story…’ I’m more interested in what would happen today. You know, you see things on TV about ghosts, but none of it’s real. What if, suddenly, something started happening? What happens when that just begins to happen to people? Also, how do they develop their technology? It’s not as fun if they’re just handed their proton packs. It’s why it’s not as fun to do a sequel. The fun is getting there.”
