Who you gonna call? Apparently, Melissa!!!

Melissa McCarthy is once again reuniting with director Paul Feig. They previously collaborated on the blockbusters The Heat, Bridesmaids and the upcoming Spy, hitting theaters on May 22, 2015. Their next project together will be the highly-anticipated all-female Ghostbusters film.

The Hollywood Reporter first revealed the news with Feig then following up with a tweet showing all four actresses appearing in the reboot. Find out who’s all on board below. Here’s a hint. It’s pretty much an SNL affair.

Clearly, Paul Feig loves Melissa McCarthy. Who can blame him? She’s one funny lady.

The duo previously worked on Bridesmaids and The Heat together. This May, Feig directs the Mike & Molly actress in his latest film, Spy, where she plays an unlikely secret agent. Think a female James Bond but not ;)

Rounding out the cast are Jude Law, Jason Statham, Allison Janney, Nia Long and Bobby Cannavale. Making the film a somewhat mini Bridesmaids reunion is Rose Byrne. She plays a target of McCarthy’s, Rayna Boyanov.

Spy opens May 22, 2015. Check out both the green and red band trailers below.

Movie Synopsis

Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

Rumors of an all-female Ghostbusters film have been swirling for some time now. Even original star Bill Murray has caught wind of this. Though he won’t star in Ghostbusters III, the 63-year-old legend shared his ideas on who those leading ladies should be during an interview with the Toronto Star. Find out who below.

Just like Jay Leno did for his Tonight Show farewell, Chelsea Handler enlisted her celebrity friends to close out her time over at E!. After seven years, the 39-year-old hosted the final episode of her talk show Chelsea Lately! She’ll head over to Netflix to launch the streaming service’s first ever talk show, set to debut in early 2016.

Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock and Mary McCormack mocked Handler in a segment which included a surprise by Chelsea’s former flame, 50 Cent. In another bit, Ellen DeGeneres surprised Chelsea in the shower asking why she had never been invited as a guest and wondered if it was because of her sexual orientation.

As amusing as those segments were, my favorite part featured Handler being serenaded by a whackload of stars singing revised lyrics to “We Are The World.” Gwen Stefani kicked things off with solos by Fergie, Avril Lavigne, Trace Adkins, Dave Grohl, Alanis Morrissette, LeAnn Rimes and Tim Gunn.

They were joined in the chorus by Vanessa Hudgens, 50 Cent, Joel McHale, Naya Rivera, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, Miley Cyrus, Tim Allen, Dane Cook, Josh Gad, Kathy Griffin, Leah Remini, Wiz Khalifa, Anna Faris, Chloe Grace Moretz, Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Johnny Knoxville and Kelly Osbourne. Marlee Matlin was also on hand singing along using sign language. Check out all the clips below.

Melissa McCarthy & Susan Sarandon Team Up For Tammy

In: Donovan, Movies

Since her breakthrough role in Bridesmaids, Melissa McCarthy has been unstoppable at the box office. She’s delivered hit after hit including The Identity Thief and The Heat. This July, the 43-year-old actress hopes to keep the streak alive with her latest film, Tammy, directed by her husband, Ben Falcone.

McCarthy stars as Tammy, a woman who thinks she’s living a nice steady life until she loses her job and then learns about her husband’s adulterous ways. Pretty soon she becomes unhinged and goes on a road trip with her alcoholic grandmother played by the wonderful Susan Sarandon. The two run into mischief along the way, including robbing a fast food joint.

If the combo of Melissa and Susan doesn’t do the trick, perhaps the insane amount of talent appearing in the film will. Joining the duo are Dan Aykroyd, Allison Janney, Kathy Bates, Toni Collette, Mark Duplass, and Sandra Oh to name a few. Tammy hits theaters on July 4, 2014. Check out the first teaser trailer below.

It was the end of an era last night on Saturday Night Live. Seth Meyers anchored his last Weekend Update. The 40-year-old comedian holds the record for hosting the segment the longest. His tenure spans eight seasons and 154 episodes. His former co-anchor Amy Poehler dropped by for his last sketch. Andy Samberg and Bill Hader also make a surprise appearance.

Check out Meyers’ final show below along with guest host Melissa McCarthy’s sketches. My favorites include the Super Bowl halftime show skit, the women’s group sketch and girlfriends talk show. Though she didn’t appear in “28 Reasons to Hug a Black Guy,” the video commemorating Black History Month was another highlight. Which ones were your favorite? Weigh in afterward.

Melissa McCarthy hosts Saturday Night Live for the third time this weekend. She’ll be joined by recent Grammy winners, Imagine Dragons, as the episode’s musical guest. Lorne Michaels was wise to enlist McCarthy once again. She’s proven she can deliver huge laughs and fits in quite well with the cast.

As amusing as the sight of McCarthy sucker punching Thompson is, the funniest parts of the clips are the creative ways the two hype the show without using the words ‘Super Bowl‘ or ‘Olympics.’ Since the big game is airing on FOX this year, the peacock network can’t actually say the phrase. For legal reasons, the IOC is equality stringent in how the term Olympics is used. That’s why McCarthy talks about buying an ‘official torch’ as opposed to saying the ‘o’ word. Check out the series of promos below.

Movie Review: The Heat

In: Matt, Movies

Melissa McCarthy returns to the big screen today alongside Sandra Bullock in the new comedy, The Heat. Bridesmaids director Paul Feig directs the film, so naturally I went in expecting another hilarious comedy.

The story has Sandra Bullock reprise her role from Miss Congeniality 1 and 2 as the stuck up FBI agent Sarah Ashburn, while McCarthy plays her unlikely, rough around the edges partner Shannon Mullins. The two have been unwillingly paired up and assigned to catching a drug lord. The two clashing personalities make for a hilarious combination and while predictable, garnered many laughs from yours truly.
