We’ve been waiting for Melissa McCarthy’s next move post-”Bridesmaids,” and we are so happy she’s going to be in a new movie with Jason Bateman. In “Identity Thief,” Jason and Melissa go toe-to-toe over a stolen identity and mountains of debt. Very stoked for this!
Oh, Shirtless Paul Rudd. You are Shirtless Paul Rudd and you’re not even the best thing in this trailer. “This Is 40″ is the sort-of sequel to “Knocked Up,” about Paul and Debbie, the sister and brother-in-law of Katharine Heigl’s character. Now they’re 40 and feeling positively ancient. But they’re still got pot brownies, a gorgeous home, two great kids, and people in their lives like Megan Fox, Chris O’Dowd, and Jason Segel. Doesn’t sound too shabby to me. By all means, Leslie Mann, take 28. I’ll hand it over for half a pot brownie and a romp in the sack with your onscreen husband.
I found last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards to be terribly dull, aside from learning the rules behind Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Melissa McCarthy’s fun drinking game. So, here’s how it works: every time someone says Martin Scorcese’s name (so, you know, often), take a drink! Scorcese! Scorcese! I’m drunk!
I am loving the cover of Entertainment Weekly, featuring the cast of “Bridesmaids” in tuxedos. The six funny gals were named “Entertainers of the Year” by the magazine and I can’t help but agree. Based purely on the number of times the movie made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants, “Bridesmaids” gets my vote for most entertaining film of the year.
I have never worn Spanx, but Melissa McCarthy has officially made me terrified of ever doing so. Wardrobe malfunctions are already all too prevent in my life — from snapped heels to sudden holes in my jeans’ crotch to full-on thong reveals thanks to hearty gusts of wind — so Spanx just sound like a disaster waiting to happen. They do, however, make for a hilarious segment on “Ellen.” Watch above!
Divine, as in Divine the infamous drag queen who was John Waters’ muse for much of his career, starring in movies like “Pink Flamingos.” Melissa McCarthy’s impression is so uncanny, it took me a second to figure out it was her. Check out one more pic from the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, after the jump! [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »
Was there ever any doubt that Melissa McCarthy goes there and then goes 100 paces farther? Add the “Bridesmaids” sex tape as another piece evidence in the case for her complete fearlessness in the pursuit of being funny. The ”sex tape” between her character Megan and Air Marshall Jon is all kinds of wrong. Like, Cheez-Whiz-and-a-taser wrong. Melissa, you are my hero. [Funny Or Die]
There have been some good “Saturday Night Live” hosts (Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm) and some bad (January Jones). There have been far too many mediocre hosts to count. But count Melissa McCarthy among the rare celebrity hosts (like Justin Timberlake) that can actually hold her own among, and at times outshine, the show’s cast. As the host of SNL’s second show of the season, McCarthy nailed each and every sketch, from her opening monologue (above) which saw her “dancing” alongside “Bridesmaids” co-stars Kristin Wiig, to a skit in which she played a desperate-to-please taste tester at a focus group. Check out some of our favorite moments in the video clips above and then cross your fingers that she ends up hosting again, sooner rather than later!
If I could pick anyone to play Girl Talk Jenga with, it would be Melissa McCarthy and Jimmy Fallon. I thought Girl Talk questions were spicier, though, like “Who do you want to play Seven Minutes In Heaven with?” I guess they have to keep it PG-13 on “Late Night.” [Late Night With Jimmy Fallon]
