Plus the 'Ghostbusters' cast dances and plays "Heads Up" with Ellen DeGeneres.

Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones seemed to be having a blast during their Wednesday interview with Ellen DeGeneres. The Ghostbusters cast talked about the odd jobs they had in the past and DeGeneres asked Jones about being a telemarketer for Scientology.

"They kind of still don't know I'm not a Scientologist," said Jones as the other ladies laughed on the couch next to her. "Thanks for blowing my cover Ellen."

The Saturday Night Live comedian said she took the job because she needed to pay rent and it was a "very easy interview" because all she had to do was "act crazy." 

McKinnon followed up by revealing she was an umpire for softball, even though she didn't know the rules of the game.

Later in their appearance, the actresses played "Heads Up," with SNL costars Jones and McKinnon describing their words together and former Bridesmaids costars Wiig and McCarthy acting out different dances.

DeGeneres had trouble guessing when the two women acted out "bump and grind" and "conga line," but regardless it made for a very entertaining game to watch.
