Who ya gonna call?! Chris Hemsworth!

Hemsworth is dropping the hammer and picking up the phone for his new movie. Although he has proven himself a mighty superhero and worthy race car driver, this summer Liam Hemsworth's brother is working to make a name for himself as a comedy star.

First it was Vacation, co-starring with Ed Helms and Christina Applegate, and next will be the highly anticipated all-female Ghostbusters, in which he's slated to play the secretary of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Move over, Annie Potts, there's a new assistant in town.

But based on the first photo of Hemsworth onset of the film, it looks like he'll be doing a heck of a lot more than answering telephones! The Thor actor was spotted riding on basic motorcycle, outfitted with a crate full of ghostbusting props. While Janine, the original secretary, wore her own clothes, Hemsworth was seen wearing a uniform similar to that of the women! Does this mean he'll get his chance to prove himself as a hero once again? Maybe!

When news first broke that Hemsworth would be joining the cast, Variety reported, "Insiders say the studio went to Hemsworth very early on in the process for one of the major male roles but the Aussie actor passed because the role was too small. Since then Sony sent the script back to be reworked so the part could be beefed up."

Putting Hemsworth on a motorcycle instead of behind a desk certainly means that the role has been "beefed up," but then again this could be a picture of him driving to the Ghostbusters' office. We'll just have to wait and see when the movie comes out July 15, 2016, but until then we can ogle him and his adorably nerdy glasses, which he definitely pulls off. 

While many might argue classics don't need sequels or remakes, we're guessing Paul Feig's version won't succumb to these movies' fates.:
