SNL Writer Cast As The GHOSTBUSTERS Reboot Villain
Paul Feig's reboot of Ghostbusters is shooting right now, and more cast members are still joining. The latest addition: Saturday Night Live writer and star of the short Secret Santa Buttplugs Neil Casey as the villain.
Who is the villain? Well, I happen to know about this - at least up to the December 2014 draft of the film.
The slightest of spoilers to follow!
The part I'm assuming Casey is playing is Rowan Elgin, a role written for Peter Dinklage. Elgin is a troll who spends his days antagonizing a call-in radio advice doctor as well as working on a secret machine. That machine is placed beneath the Chrysler Building to tear open a hole in reality and begin an invasion. There are ghost T-Rexs, a Times Square magically returned to the porno days and eventually a giant horned demon.
It's a major role, and will bring Casey into contact with some serious FX business. Will it work? Well, I'm not a huge fan of this script, but hopefully some stuff has changed in the last seven months...
