It’s not the Stay Puft marshmallow man, but it will do.

According to Deadline, comedian Neil Casey has been cast to play the villain in Sony’s “Ghostbusters” reboot.

Casey joins an already stacked comedic lineup that includes Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.

Details of Casey’s character, Rowan, are mostly being kept under wraps.

Casey got his start as a performer at New York’s Upright Citzens Brigade (UCB). If you ever went to one of their famed Assscat 3000 shows, you would very likely have seen him perform.
