The "X-Files" veteran Gillian Anderson has a message for Paul Feig: “Cast me now!”

While participating Sunday in a Reddit AMA, the "Hannibal" actress was asked about her interest in the director’s female-led "Ghostbusters" reboot.

“OH MY GOD, I just looked it up online,” she replied. “Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I’m free!!!!! I’m free I’m free and I’m funny, goddamnit!”

Anderson was also asked whether there had been any progress on the fabled third "X-Files" film, to which she responded, “Sorta kinda. Keep your ears to the ground.”
