Gillian Anderson Wants Role In “Ghostbusters” Pic
X-Files star Gillian Anderson would love to be in an all female Ghostbusters. At least that’s what she said during a recent chat session on Reddit – a social networking, entertainment and news site.
Initially, Anderson – best known as Dana Scully in The X-Files – was unaware that director Paul Feig is writing and directing such a project. Feig has said he wants to cast “hilarious women” as the Ghostbusters. Once she learned the big news, however, the actress exclaimed:
“OH MY GOD, I just looked it up online,” she wrote. “Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I’m free!!!!! I’m free I’m free and I’m funny, goddamnit!”
When a fan offered to start a petition, Anderson said:
“Make it happen.”
Aside from expressing intense interest in a new Ghostbusters pic, Anderson as also been seen in Hannibal and Crisis. When asked about a possible third X-Files movie, she urged fans to keep their “ears to the ground.”
