On the list of superhero Chrises, Hemsworth has never been at the top of mine. I mean, as far as physical objectification foes (a most favorite past time around here), obviously, he is a gorgeous man. I’m not an idiot, and he was believably cast as Thor, for crying out loud. But he never hit that extra something special for me.
That is, until I heard the cast of the new Ghostbusters talk about him. Because this is what happens when Graham Norton just mentions his name:
This video is two minutes and forty-eight seconds long, and it took me maybe a quarter of that to finally jump on the Hemsworth train. (Phrasing.) The degree to which these awesome women hate him (love-hate!) for being so goddamn charming, funny, talented, and probably boogerless— what other choice do we have but to love(hate) him, too?
Oh, and as a bonus, here’s Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy singing their “folk” version of the Ghostbusters theme. It’s awesome, and ends with Paul Feig gettin’ his.
