    Chris Hemsworth, is that you?

    The 32-year-old actor plays receptionist Kevin, in Paul Feig's upcoming "Ghostbusters" reboot, which features an all-female main cast. In the first photo of the character, released Wednesday on the movie's website, Hemsworth looks, well, more Rick Moranis than beefy Australian stud – meaning, adorably nerdy. 

    He sports a short-sleeved shirt, black vest, red tie and horn-rimmed glasses and sits behind the Ghostbusters' receptionist's desk. Annie Potts had played bespectacled receptionist Janine, the equivalent of his role, in the original '80s movies.

    The main actors in the "Ghostbusters" reboot are "SNL's" Kate McKinnon, 32, and Leslie Jones, 48, former cast member-turned-comedy film star Kristen Wiig, 42, and Melissa McCarthy, 45. New, individual photos of the four were also released.


    McCarthy had joked to E! News' Marc Malkin in November that Hemsworth was "shirtless the entire time" while filming Ghostbusters, while Feig confirmed the actor does show off his body in the movie.

    "You will be seeing some man flesh," the director said.

    Posters for the new "Ghostbusters" movie were released in December. The film is set to hit theaters on July 15.
