Bill Murray Makes Casting Suggestions for the New ‘Ghostbusters’

Comedy superstar, Bill Murray, has chimed in on who he thinks should star in the rumored, all-female Ghostbusters flick.

As had been reported a couple of weeks ago, Bridesmaids director, Paul Feig, is in talks to direct what’s variously been described as a reboot of and/or a third installment of 1984’s paranormal comedy classic, Ghostbusters.

Huff Post is calling it Ghostbusters III here, but we’ve also seen it be described as a reboot.

Regardless, a new Ghostbusters seems to be in the works, and it’s said to be most likely starring women. In a recent interview with the Toronto Star, Murray was asked about whom he’d like to see in such a film, and he seized upon the opportunity to praise some of the funniest female actors in Hollywood.

First, he mentioned Melissa McCarthy, his co-star in the upcoming St. Vincent. “Melissa would be a spectacular Ghostbuster,” he opined.

Murray continued, “And Kristen Wiig is so funny — God, she’s funny! I like this girl Linda Cardellini (“Mad Men”) a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there.”

We couldn’t agree more, and could easily list another couple dozen off the tops of our heads.
