On Halloween DreamWorks Animation decided it was a good idea to reveal that Bill Murray will join cast of B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations as villainous ghost, Addison Drake. Jennifer Coolidge, best known for her role as Stifler’s mom in American Pie, will play Carol Sue, a bubbly transitions-relations officer, the The Help’s Octavia Spencer will play the tough as nails Sr. B.O.O. officer, Captain Book, according to THR.
The trio join the previously announced Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Rashida Jones and Matthew Bomer.
Director Anthony Leondis commented on the new cast members, “Bill Murray is the perfect actor to bring this character to life – or should I say ‘after-life? Along with Jennifer and Octavia, this is a dream cast. I can’t imagine a team more capable of packing a funnier punch to this broadly comedic ghost story.”
The supernatural action comedy follows two bumbling ghosts who get into all sorts of trouble when they join the Bureau of Otherworldly Operations (B.O.O.) – the ghost world’s elite counter-haunting unit – and ultimately must face off against the planet’s greatest haunter.
The film is set to be released by Twentieth Century Fox on June 5, 2015.
