Michael K. Williams shares a scene with a classic character in Ghostbusters

Much of the press focused around Paul Feig's upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS film has centered around the main cast of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, but the film also features a strong supporting cast as well, including Michael K. Williams (Boardwalk Empire). The actor spoke with Entertainment Weekly Radio recently and gave a few details on what type of character he'll be playing in GHOSTBUSTERS.

I play the FBI agent who works for the mayor. Our whole thing is, we’re going to tell the people it was a flash in the sky and "run along little women with your ghosts, we got this."

Michael K. Williams seems to have had a blast shooting the film with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, saying that the gig was a dream job. "They’re at the top of their game, man. I had the pleasure of working with Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon on a show on IFC called Spoils Before Dying. So, I had a relationship with them already. Leslie Jones, you meet her once, you feel you’ve known her your whole life. She penetrates any walls or any barriers you may have, she goes right through that, right to your heart chakra. And Melissa, she’s just a gem. I have so much respect for these ladies." However, there was one character whom Williams was even more pumped to work with, and it's one who should be very familiar to GHOSTBUSTERS fans.

I’m not going to lie, working with Melissa, and Kristen, and Kate was really dope, but I got to work with Slimer, dude. Like Slimer! I’m in a scene with Slimer! I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan and it was a dream come true.

But will he get slimed? Perhaps we'll find out when the first trailer for GHOSTBUSTERS debuts on March 3rd, just a week away. GHOSTBUSTERS will hit theaters on July 15, 2016.
