And so begins an intriguing new phase in Chris Hemsworth typecasting.

Paul Feig, director of the upcoming all-female Ghostbusters movie, made a casting tweet-announcement yesterday. Chris Hemsworth will be the receptionist to the gender-swapped Ghostbusters played by Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon.

I probably would have gone with Chris Pine after his goofball singing in Into The Woods, but ultimately I'm happy to see any A-list male actor answering phones for a bunch of badass women. And not just in movies. Hopefully if Hillary Clinton becomes president, she'll hire a bunch of hot guys to be receptionists in the White House to make a statement. Maybe Chris Evans outside the oval office, Chris Messina in the veep's area, and Chris Pratt near the entrance.

Hemsworth already knows some of the female Ghostbusters from hosting SNL. He must have really impressed them with his organizational skills, professional correspondence, and phone manners.
