Chris Hemsworth has been cast as the receptionist in the all-female version of Ghostbusters. Joining Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, the Australian actor will take on the role Annie Potts played in the 1984 blockbuster.

Director Paul Feig, who also directed the comedy Bridesmaids, made the announcement on Twitter by posting an image of the actor with the caption "Our receptionist. #whoyougonnacall." According to Variety, Chris initially turned down the role because he thought it was too small. A bit of reworking on the script, however, finally got him to agree (thank goodness for that!).

The film is set to be released summer of 2016, so until then, calm yo' self.
