In Ghostbusters, the original film, the closest Annie Potts got to suiting up for action was putting on a come-hither look for Harold Ramis’s character Egon.
In Ghostbusters, the new film from Paul Feig, Chris Hemsworth plays a similar receptionist character to the one played by Potts in the original. This time, however, it seems like the new Ghostbuster team at least has an extra uniform laying around, as Hemsworth is suited up in a boiler suit similar to the one worn by the main cast (above). Check out the first Chris Hemsworth Ghostbusters shot below.
Vulture tweeted this image, which according to JustJared represents Hemsworth acting in a scene, and not just tooling around set on a motorcycle.

Look how happy he is! Granted, he’s a Ghostbuster (kinda) on a motorcycle (definitely) so of course he’s thrilled.
Meanwhile, what’s that on the back of the bike? Maybe he’s got a cache of replacement parts to deliver to the main team when things go bad out in the field. Seems like the handlebars have stuff taped to them as well, though for what purpose we can’t say.
If the pattern holds, we’ll probably get an official view of Hemsworth’s character sooner rather than later, just as Sony released the official photo of the main cast in costume, as seen above.
Feig’s Ghostbusters features Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates, Kristen Wiig as Erin Gilbert, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, and the four end up battling the supernatural in ways that haven’t quite been revealed.
Additionally, Andy Garcia is playing the mayor of New York City, Michael K. Williams is a character named Hawkins, Matt Walsh is a character named Rourke (I could easily see him working for the mayor), Saturday Night Live writer Neil Casey is the film’s villain, and there will be a couple cameos from original cast members, too.
