Sophia Loren's 80th Birthday Celebration At The Museo Soumaya In Mexico City, MexicoThe "Ghostbusters" cast is expanding, with several new additions to the already-impressive ensemble recently confirmed.

TheWrap reports that actors Andy Garcia, Michael K. Williams, and Matt Walsh have all joined the flick. Garcia will play the mayor of New York City, while "The Wire" alum Williams is playing a character named Hawkins.

Walsh ("Veep") will play a character named Rourke. And according to TheWrap, local New York City news anchor Pat Kiernan will put those skills to use to play a TV news reporter in the flick.

That foursome joins previously-announced "Ghostbusters" leads Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, who play the titular heroines in the reboot of the 1984 comedy classic. Chris Hemsworth is starring as the foursome's receptionist for their fledgling ghost-fighting business.

Filming is already underway in Boston (which is standing in for NYC in the flick), and director Paul Feig has already revealed a few looks at the costumes and gadgets that the cast will use. Based on everything Feig has said so far about the film, we're expecting some scary fun; with the addition of Garcia and Williams, especially, we're looking forward to some intense dramatic moments, too.

"Ghostbusters" is due in theaters on July 22, 2016.
