Leslie Jones' Ghostbusters Castmates Lose It When She Recounts Her Days as a Scientology Telemarketer

The cast of the Ghostbusters reboot stopped by Ellen on Wednesday, leading to a delightful moment in which Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones almost brought Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Melissa McCarthy to the point of crying laughter with her recollections of her former job as a Scientology telemarketer.

“They kinda still don’t know I’m not a Scientologist,” she began, looking fearfully into the camera. “Thanks for blowing my cover, Ellen.”

Jones then went on to describe how she got the job (as her costars increasingly lost their shit), saying, “I lived in Glendale. I needed to pay the rent. It was a very easy interview—I just acted crazy.”


Asked to reveal what her weirdest job was, Kate “Leslie’s Bitch” McKinnon casually threw out, “Uh... you know... umpire.”

Give these two a show of their own.

Leslie’s laugh when Kate said she used to be an umpire killed me.
