Paul Feig’s ‘Ghostbusters’ Has A Villain: Neil Casey

Paul Feig’s all-female reboot of Ghostbusters has cast Neil Casey as its villain. The cast has been coming together in recent weeks, and Casey will play a character named Rowan.

Deadline broke the news this morning that Neil Casey will join the cast. Casey is an accredited writer alum of Saturday Night Live, so Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones may have had a say in casting Casey in the film. Casey;s other writing credits include Inside Amy Schumer and The Kroll Show. His acting credits are limited, having appeared in Veep, The League, and Broad City among other fringe shows.

There are no details regarding his character or what sort of villain he may be, even though he does slightly resemble Peter MacNicol, who played Janosz in Ghostbusters II. It seems doubtful that Feig would cast Neil Casey to play Janosz, so that is probably just a confidence. The Ghostbusters reboot is currently filming and will be released July 22, 2016.
