Maybe he could even take a semi-biographical part and play a stand-up comedian.Hannibal as a comic obviously isn't too much of a stretch, but maybe he's doing a 20-minute set, and all of a sudden a ghoul emerges from the mic he's talking into.
has been cast as a teacher in the movie, joining Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mc Kenna Grace, and Sigourney Weaver.
Not a ton of details are out there, but we know that Carrie Coon is the mother of two teenagers, who will be played by Wolfhard and Grace; the two teens will become Ghostbusters, and others are supposedly invited to join the fun.
Not only is he wildly versatile, but he possesses a natural charisma that makes him personable in basically any scenario.
He's got a Netflix series coming at some point in 2019, but it'll also be nice to see him return to straight comedy after a run of Marvel projects.
It wouldn't be a shocker if Coon starts to bust some ghosts on her own, and takes on something of the "straight man" role that Harold Ramis did in the originals, and that Kristen Wiig did in the 2016 re-boot. Grace's character seems to be the center of director Jason Reitman's plans for the movie—he's said that his movie was rooted around the idea of a 12-year-old girl who becomes a Ghostbuster.
Reitman, typically an Indie director, didn't envision himself making a movie, but the idea of Grace's character came to him, and apparently he just couldn't stop writing.
Trouble ensues when he runs into his ex on the island as she is vacationing with her new boyfriend.
Composer Peter Bretter (Jason Segel) is in a five-year relationship with actress Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell), who stars in a CSI-like television show titled Crime Scene: Scene of the Crime.
I know that Rudd is playing a teacher in the new movie, but given that he, Wolfhard, and Coon were the movie's most major castings thus far, I'd have to imagine that he's playing something of the Bill Murray role: a dry-witted and smart leader who can take charge, but also never fails to deliver a killer one-liner.
