‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Casts its Villain

The “Ghostbusters” reboot now has its villain, and it’s keeping with the franchise’s comedy-centric tradition: Deadline has word that Neil Casey, a noted comedic writer and actor, has joined the film as “the” villain, a character named Rowan — with that name being the only detail released on the character thus far.

Casey has already worked with new “Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig, as part of the main cast of Yahoo! Screen series “Other Space;” created by Feig and debuted earlier this year. He’s been a writer and performer on “Kroll Show” and “Inside Amy Schumer,” and spent a season (2012-2013) as a writer on “Saturday Night Live.” Of course, the main “Ghostbusters” cast has deep “SNL” connections — Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are current cast members, Kristen Wiig was on the series for seven seasons and Melissa McCarthy is a frequent host.

The “Ghostbusters” reboot is scheduled for release on July 22, 2016. The script is by Feig and Katie Dippold, who previously collaborated on “The Heat.”
