Chris Hemsworth is joining the cast of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters movie … as the receptionist.

Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are starring as the ghost-hunting foursome in the all-female take on the classic supernatural comedy franchise.

In keeping with the gender role reversals, Hemsworth is now the receptionist for the Ghostbusters, taking over from the role originated by Annie Potts.

Hemsworth made a name for himself taking on manly action roles with movies such as Thor, Snow White and the Huntsman and Rush, but seems to be open to making detours in comedy. Ghostbusters will be his second major comedic role after his appearance in this summer’s Vacation.
