The "Lady Bird" actor and playwright reveals he was in the right place at the right time when writer/director Jason Reitman was looking for someone to fill a role in "Ghostbusters: Afterlife", which was filmed in Calgary, Canada.
"My wife Carrie is in... the new 'Ghostbusters' movie coming out in the summer, and we were there in Calgary while she was shooting it, and a role became available, and so I was able to jump in and play a small part in it myself," he said.
The project will also feature Paul Rudd, "Stranger Things" star Finn Wolfhard and "Gifted" actress Mckenna Grace, as well as guest appearances by original franchise stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts, but Letts is unable to share any details about the film's plot or the character he plays.
Joking about the secrecy surrounding the movie, he told U.S. breakfast show "Today", "Here's what I can tell you: nothing! Absolutely nothing!"
"Ghostbusters: Afterlife" is set to launch in July.
