Andy Garcia, Michael K. Williams, and more join the Ghostbusters reboot

07.06.2015

Some new names have joined the cast of Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS and they should at least make those on the fans a little more interested in the remake of Ivan Reitman's classic movie. The Wrap reports that Andy Garcia, Michael K. Williams, Cecily Strong, and Matt Walsh will all appear in the film which is currently in production.

The news did not indicate which character SNL castmember Strong will play, but her appearance should work well opposite the main quarter of actresses who all appear on the sketch comedy series or have hosted multiple times. Matt Walsh of Veep and the Upright Citizens Brigade will portray a character named Rourke. Michael K Williams, best known for his roles on The Wire and Boardwalk Empire, joins as Hawkins while Andy Garcia will play the Mayor of New York.

Garcia has enjoyed a long career but has not maintained the same star power in recent years as he had in his prime. Still, the Mayor in the original GHOSTBUSTERS remains a memorable role even if many people don't know the actor's name (FYI, it is David Margulies). Garcia could have some fun being a hardass skeptic when Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon try to explain the paranormal phenomenon plaguing NYC. I just hope they cast someone good for Walter Peck. It should be easy since this is an all female reboot and he has no dick.

GHOSTBUSTERS hits theaters on July 22, 2016.

Just getting predictable at this point. I'm guessing Matt Walsh's character Rourke is the new Peck for this remake.

Michael K. Williams' character is probably a psychiatrist that tests the GBs later in the film.

Cecily Strong will be the new stand-in for Louis Tully.

Andy Garcia? really? That's interesting. I wonder if he'll play the Walter Peck character?

As if adding more actors / actresses would make this movie any better from what we've seen so far.

They could bring Marilyn Monroe back from the dead and I still wouldn't watch this thing.

The sad thing is that this movie will probably make a small profit and get decent reviews based on name recognition, and the studio will go ahead with a sequel. But we all know we'd be settling. A new Ghostbusters has potential to be a breakout hit, if it was being done correctly. Look at how well Mad Max and Jurassic World did, despite the series being out of site for several years.

Why hire Cecily Strong if she won't play...

... one of the title characters? Seriously, she's one of the best current S.N.L. members. Certainly better than Leslie Jones. I was bummed when I read she didn't want to be a WEEKEND UPDATE anchorwoman anymore.

Whilst I love Ghostbusters, I really can't dredge up any excitement whatsoever for this film. Sorry.
