Bill Murray has repeatedly denied any interest in reviving the role of Peter Venkman in a Ghostbusters reboot, but that doesn't mean he's totally disinterested in the franchise. According to the Toronto Star, Murray recently threw out a list of the actresses he'd like to see in an all-female Ghostbusters movie — and it's hard to argue with any of his top choices.

"Melissa [McCarthy] would be a spectacular Ghostbuster," said Murray. "And Kristen Wiig is so funny — God, she's funny! I like this girl Linda Cardellini a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there."
