3 Actors Who Need To Join Channing Tatum In The New ‘Ghostbusters’ Movie

Jump to Comments


If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, there’s brand new group of people you can call.

In addition to Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot, Sony is developing another installment in the comedy franchise, with four new men hoisting the proton packs, Deadline reports. The film series’ original director, Ivan Reitman, will be back on board as a producer, while Joe and Anthony Russo, who are best known for helming the action-packed Captain America: The Winter Soldierwill step behind the cameras.

Also producing? Channing Tatum, who the team hopes will become the new face of the Ghostbusters by starring in the upcoming movie. Though he hasn’t officially agreed to a role just yet, that hasn’t stopped fans of both Ghostbusters and 21 Jump Street from getting excited anyway… or from throwing out a few names for who they think should join him in the fight against ghosts.

We decided to get in on the action ourselves, and so we’ve picked three actors who we’d love to see join the team and take on the creepy crawlies of the world.

He can do drama, he can do comedy, he can dance, and most importantly, he can probably take out the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man with a well-executed one-arm backflip. Trust us; he’s definitely not scared of no ghost.

Just because Parks and Rec is over, that doesn’t mean we don’t want more Ansari on our screens. His manic energy would be a perfect touch for the slightly madcap universe of Ghostbusters, and he’ll be able to redesign those uniforms into something a bit sharper — after all, it’s important to look good, no matter what you do.

Cho’s comedic specialty is the high-strung, type A character who is willing to cut loose and go a bit crazy, which makes him a perfect fit for this team. He plays the straight man just as effectively as he plays the weirdo, and he can do a pretty sweet air harmonica solo, which will make those long days waiting for calls just fly by.

Every crew needs a wildcard, and over the last four years on New Girl, Morris has proven that he can play unpredictable better than just about anyone else. He’s got perfect timing, hilarious line delivery, and thanks to all of his time tracking down his mysterious cat, Ferguson, he knows how to handle rogue creatures. Morris is more than due for a breakout role, and Ghostbusters is just the vehicle to deliver it.
