Paul Feig's upcoming Ghostbusters reboot keeps getting bigger. Just when we thought the cast — which already boasts Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as the leads and Chris Hemsworth as a receptionist — couldn't get any better, it did. Michael K. Williams, Matt Walsh, and Andy Garcia have just been added to the Ghostbusters roster, and to that I say, "Sure."

Garcia, best known for his role in the Ocean's Elevens franchise, will play the mayor of New York City, The Wrap reports. Williams (The Wire) will be someone named Hawkins, and Walsh (Veep's bumbling press secretary Mike McClintock) will play a guy named Rourke. So maybe Garcia will be a corrupt politician and Williams will be a criminal with a heart of gold — or maybe Ghostbusters will keep surprising us.

Feig's Ghostbustersinspired by The Walking Dead, is rumored to be a more horror-filled take on the 1984 original. It's scheduled for release on July 22nd, 2016.
