Chris Hemsworth brings zero office skills to 'Ghostbusters' role

New "Ghostbusters" video shows off the actor's comedic side as a cute but clueless receptionist named Kevin.

Just in time to celebrate Administrative Professionals Day on April 27, we get another glimpse of "Thor" actor Chris Hemsworth in the new "Ghostbusters" movie, directed by Paul Feig.

In this new featurette, we see some of Hemsworth's comedy chops as the clueless but cute receptionist at Ghostbusters HQ as he interacts with his fellow co-stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

Each new Ghostbuster has her own specialty: McKinnon plays the "brilliant engineer" Jillian Holtzmann. Wiig is the quantum physics genius Erin Gilbert. Jones is Patty Tolan, the street-savvy New York expert who also owns the hearse that they transform into their epic company vehicle, Ecto-1. McCarthy as Yates seems to be the one who keeps them all on track and motivated to fight spirits.

But when it comes to Kevin, well, he's got a few things to learn from the team.

"Kevin is a big, dumb puppy dog," Hemsworth explains in the video. "He has no idea what they do. Kevin thinks he's going to become a Ghostbuster. He takes ahold of the equipment, gets a bike, builds his own uniform and says, 'Look, I'm one of the gang now.'"

The video shows Kevin being awful at his job, from not answering the phones to spitting coffee back into his employer's mug, all with his co-stars trying to keep a straight face.

"He's so funny and such a funny improviser," Wiig states in the video.

"Kristen and I were fully crying, we were laughing that hard because of what Chris was talking about," McCarthy added.

"When I watch the movie I go, 'I just want more Kevin,'" Jones says in the video. "Seriously, there's no way that you're this sweet, this funny, this fine -- it's just not fair!"

We can't wait to see what trouble Kevin gets into in the new "Ghostbusters," which comes out July 15 in the US and UK, with an Australia opening date yet to be announced.
