Ghostbusters featurette takes a look at Kevin, the team’s big dumb puppy dog

Chris Hemsworth Ghostbusters

I usually make note when a character shares my name, I'm sure many of you can relate, but more often than not, when a Kevin shows up, it's to fill the role of the idiot who screws everything up; I try not to read anything into that. Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS will bring yet another Kevin into cinema history with Chris Hemsworth playing the Ghostbusters' receptionist who, as we can see, is rather lacking in his ability to perform even simple tasks. Hemsworth describes his character as a "big dumb puppy dog" in a new featurette for the upcoming film, but for my money, it's Kate McKinnon who gives the best description of the character.

"It's a Ken doll with the insides scooped out."

GHOSTBUSTERS is set to hit theaters on July 15, 2016.
