After reporting that Boardwalk Empire’s Michael K Williams is joining the cast of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot last night (here), it looks like more names have signed on… Oh, and the new rumour is that Williams’ character will be called Hawkins. Make of that what you will.
Anyway, the rest…
Andy Garcia has been cast as the Mayor of New York City which we actually like; Garcia is a cracking actor and does far too little these days, so we we’re hoping for a meatier role than Lenny in the original movie.
The long-rumoured Cecily Strong has now been confirmed, although in what role we aren’t sure yet.
Rolemodels actor Matt Walsh will play Rourke – I can’t lie, I really like Walsh’s comedy work so am curious to see who – or what – Rourke is.
And real-life New York City’s NY1 news anchor Pat Kiernan will play… himself. Something similar to Casey Kasem in the first movie, perhaps?
Anyway, stick with us for the GB news as it breaks and let us know what you think.
