A drawing of the New Ghostbusters cast is part of the New Yorker‘s daily cartoon. I guess the envelopes are pay checks or maybe instructions to their Sony employers on how to make a good Ghostbusters film. 😀 Stay-Puft looks in shape, ready to travel to Hollywood. :p

In an interview with Dan Aykroyd, Hollywood Reporter asked the Ghostbusters originator his thoughts on the new Ghostbusters female cast.
The Aykroyd family is delighted by this inheritance of the Ghostbusters torch by these most magnificent women in comedy.
My great grandfather, Dr. Sam Aykroyd, the original Ghostbuster, was a man who empowered women in his day and this is a beautiful development in the legacy of our family business.

Director Paul Feig (Twitter) showed a pic of the 4 actresses that presumably are set to star in ‘Ghostbusters.’ Or what I’ve also called it, New Ghostbusters.
The actresses playing new Ghostbusters:
- Melissa McCarthy
- Kristen Wiig
- Leslie Jones
- Kate McKinnon
I’m slightly familiar with some of Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig work. I’ve never seen Leslie Jones or Kate McKinnon from Saturday Night Live or anything else as I haven’t been an avid viewer of SNL in years. Probably about the time Ghostbusters 3 could have been out. :O Since this news broke and Ghostbusters is trending I’ve read some articles to attempt to get familiar with their “comedy backgrounds.”
More about New Ghostbusters to come.
