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.
