cook off trailer

It’s the heyday of TV series like Chopped and The Great British Bake Off, so it seems like there’s no better time for a mockumentary film about the lives of quirky small-town cooking competitors.

Ironically, Melissa McCarthy‘s comedy Cook Off! is a movie that has been long in the development oven, originally made a decade ago before being shelved in 2007. Now Lionsgate has picked up the film and re-edited it for 2017 consumption. Hopefully the jokes haven’t expired by now.

Melissa McCarthy - Margie Claus

Making a holiday movie is rite of passage for on-screen talents in Hollywood. Eventually, almost every actor or actress makes an attempt at starring in a holiday movie because it’s one of those things that’s guaranteed to bring in residual checks every years when networks air them around Thanksgiving and Christmas. That time has come for Melissa McCarthy.

The breakout supporting star of Bridesmaids has turned into quite the leading lady as one of the most talented and popular female comedy stars on the scene right now. Now, Melissa McCarthy will take her star power to Christmas with a holiday musical comedy called Margie ClausRead More »

Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer - Saturday Night Live Sean Spicer Sketch Outtakes

Before the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live aired this past weekend, we knew that Melissa McCarthy would bring back her hilarious take on Sean Spicer, despite the fact that the White House press secretary wasn’t around much the preceding week. That’s because McCarthy was spotted in full wardrobe as “Spicey” cruising around the streets of New York City afternoon on a motorized podium.

Now that the sketch has come and gone (it was actually the best of the night in our recap of the episode), Saturday Night Live has provided us with a behind the scenes look at this particular segment of the sketch that was done partially live last Saturday night, and partially pre-recorded on Friday. The video comes with a bunch of alternate takes and outtakes of Melissa McCarthy weaving through traffic and yelling at drivers as only Spicey could.

Melissa McCarthy Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend’s Mother’s Day episode of Saturday Night Live brought Melissa McCarthy back as host for the fifth time. She’s made several appearances on SNL this season as White House press secretary Sean Spicer, adding some variety to the political satire that the late night sketch show has made even more prominent since Donald Trump became president. But this time she had an entire episode to herself, and the result was a solid collection of comedy.

Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live

This weekend brings another episode of Saturday Night Live to NBC with Melissa McCarthy returning as host. She’ll be the fifth woman to join the five-timers club, and hopefully there will be plenty of cameos from some of the other members of the five-timers club to welcome her to the gang.

Beyond that, we know at least one thing that will be happening. Since Melissa McCarthy has been playing Sean Spicer in absolutely hilarious cameo appearances on SNL this season, it’s been assumed that she would reprise the role when hosting the show this weekend, and now we have gotten confirmation in the best way possible. McCarthy was spotted cruising around the streets of New York City, driving around on the White House press room podium we’ve seen her chase down reporters with on the show before.

melissa mccarthy to star in the happytime murders

If you’ve ever wanted a movie that married the reality-blending dark comedy of Who Killed Roger Rabbit with a classic Jim Henson muppet production, you’re in luck. Puppet noir The Happytime Murders is in the works (again) with an incredibly capable comedy actress.

Melissa McCarthy will star in The Happytime Murders, a noir puppet comedy directed by Brian Henson about a world in which humans and puppets warily co-exist. McCarthy will play a human detective who is forced to work with an alcoholic, disgraced puppet detective to figure out who is brutally murdering the former puppet cast members of The Happytime Gang, a beloved children’s show.

New Saturday Night Live Cast Members

Saturday Night Live only has four episodes left before season 42 is in the books, and the sketch comedy series is going out with a bang in a couple different ways. Not only will SNL end the season with four all-star hosts, but all of the remaining episodes will be broadcast live across the country at the same time for the first time in the show’s history.

Alec Baldwin Hosted Saturday Night Live

Alec Baldwin hosted Saturday Night Live for the 17th time this weekend, setting a record for hosting the most times, even more than Steve Martin. There was a lot of hype for this episode, mainly because people thought SNL would really tear into Donald Trump’s administration even more than they have been recently. The late night sketch series didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary to react to the hype, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a great show.

Even though Rosie O’Donnell wasn’t brought in as Steve Bannon, as many hoped she would, Melissa McCarthy returned as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, and Kate McKinnon added another political impression to her growing roster as well. Of course, Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Donald Trump, but another cast member also played the president in another fantastic sketch as well. You’ll see what I mean in our recap of the best and worst sketches from last night’s show. Read More »

Alec Baldwin Hosting Saturday Night Live

Last weekend, everyone was talking about Saturday Night Live. The latest episode hosted by Kristen Stewart featured a sketch (the best of the night) which brought in Melissa McCarthy to play White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in a raucously hilarious sketch that pissed off plenty of people in the Trump Administration. And it sounds like this upcoming weekend’s new episode will have something special in store as well.

Alec Baldwin has been popping up on Saturday Night Live intermittently to play Donald Trump, the controversial President of the United States, but this weekend he’ll also be hosting the show. This will be his 17th time as host of SNL, setting a new record among all of the repeat hosts. A new promo has been making the rounds featuring Alec Baldwin hyping up his appearance, and apparently it’s going to be “a big deal.” Read More »

Kristen Stewart Hosted Saturday Night Live

This weekend, Kristen Stewart hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time, and for those who have been skeptical of her talents, this should help clear the air a bit. Stewart was surprisingly engaging and casual. I was expecting her to be more stiff and less engaged in the sketches, something akin to Casey Affleck’s hosting stint, but she did a solid job with the roles she was given. She was also so relaxed that she dropped an f-bomb right at the end of her monologue by complete accident and was quick enough to make a joke about it in her embarrassment afterwards.

In addition to Kristen Stewart being a solid host, this was just a good episode of SNL, complete with an outstanding guest appearance that no one expected. It ended up being the best sketch of the night, so let’s just get down to it, shall we?
