The Thor star will appear in the female-led reboot as the ladies' receptionist, according to Feig's tweet.

Hemsworth joins Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones for the gender-flipping comedy.

The role represents a departure for Hemsworth, who is better known for his action movies like Thor and Snow White and the Huntsman, but lately he has been going deep into comedy, co-starring in the Vacation reboot, which opens in July.
