Have we discussed the recently announced casting of the Ghostbusters reboot? (Again, I do not know the real differences between reboots and reimaginings and whatever.) The Ghostbusters we deserve and want will be starring our pals Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, and Melissa McCarthy. Which one will be Egon, do you think? What’s the feminine form of the name Egon? Will Annie Potts still be there? God, I love Annie Potts.
According to feminists I follow on Twitter and Tumblr, there are still a lot of butthurt men out there who are saying that this reboot is “ruining their childhoods” and in response, there are a lot of clever tweets and cartoons that are basically like, “Get over it.”
Rumors also started floating around of the reboot (???) of my most beloved of franchises, Indiana Jones, and with hunk-of-the-moment Chris Pratt taking over Indy’s fedora and whip and heavy teaching load. Now, who will play Marcus? Can we just resurrect Denholm Eliot? And can I nominate myself for the role of Marion Ravenwood? I have brown hair and I am willing to open up a bar in Mongolia!
