Meet Marbles Harsgrove: Vintage Melissa McCarthy

She’s almost unrecognizable with a bowl cut, but this is actress Melissa McCarthy serving up some comedy as Marbles Harsgrove, a character she created. Back in the day, she made a series of YouTube videos as Marbles about such important topics as Mel Gibson’s “Apocastinko,” E. coli bacteria, and the 2008 Oscars. Enjoy her comedy and…

Melissa McCarthy Is Divine

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.

The “Bridesmaids” Sex Tape Is All Kinds Of Wrong

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,…

Melissa McCarthy Knocks “SNL” Out Of The Park

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…

Melissa McCarthy Plays Girl Talk Jenga With Jimmy Fallon

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]…

“Bridesmaids” Melissa McCarthy Is Designing a Plus-Size Clothing Line

Apparently winning an Emmy and being in one of the funniest movies of the year hasn’t solved comedienne Melissa McCarthy’s clothing woes.

Melissa McCarthy’s “Bridesmaids” Character Was Inspired By Guy Fieri

“I read the script and had such a weird, fast reaction to Megan. I knew exactly what I wanted her to look like, to sound like, and I got an intense feeling of ‘I like her so much! This will never work out!’ For the audition, I wore no makeup and a bad pant. Once…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The Emmy Nominations

Melissa McCarthy and Joshua Jackson woke up very early this morning to announce this year’s Emmy nominations. Unfortunately, they didn’t get to show off their personalities much—the proceedings were austere, as usual, with just a smattering of laughs and giggles, and the whole thing was over in six minutes flat. After the jump,…

Joel McHale Trains Melissa McCarthy For Tomorrow’s Emmy Nominations Special

Tomorrow morning at exactly 5:35 a.m., Melissa McCarthy of “Bridesmaids” will join Pacey Witter Joshua Jackson of “Fringe” to announce this year’s Emmy nominees. Nervous about the gig, Melissa consulted last year’s host, the hilarious Joel McHale, for advice. And thus, this hilarious training video was born. I cracked up when Joel rubbed a…

Soapbox: Jon Hamm And Melissa McCarthy To Be An Onscreen Couple? It’s About Time!

My favorite parts of “Bridesmaids“—well, besides the Wilson Phillips reunion—were Jon Hamm as Kristen Wiig‘s jerky and totally self-absorbed hook-up buddy and Melissa McCarthy as her twisted, tell-it-like-it-is fellow bridesmaid. So I am pretty excited that these two actors will be reuniting—under the direction of “Bridesmaids”‘ Paul Feig and Judd Apatow, no less—for a new…

Melissa McCarthy Reveals The Secret Inspiration For Her “Bridesmaids” Character

By now you’ve probably heard — or seen for yourself — that “Bridesmaids” is totally hilarious and Melissa McCarthy, who plays tomboyish and frisky Megan, is clearly the breakout star of the film. On last night’s “Conan,” she revealed the celebrity inspiration for her character: None other than spiky-haired chef Guy Fieri. “Every scene…
