3 comments on “TV Actors Hitting the Big Screen

  1. I have to also mention Melissa McCarthy! She got her start as Sookie in Gilmore Girls (2000-2007), which is one of my favorite TV shows. She is side-spitting, cry-your-eyes-out, laugh-til-it-hurts funny. Her breakout role on the silver screen was in Bridesmaids (2011), for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Other notable credits include The Heat (2013) with Sandra Bullock, and Identity Thief (2013) with Jason Bateman. McCarthy returned to the small screen with the series Mike and Molly (2010-2014), but that hasn’t stopped her from making movies. In addition to being an actress, she is also a writer, producer, and director (not to mention a mother of two); McCarthy frequently works in collaboration with her husband (Ben Falcone). Personally I’m really looking forward to the upcoming film St. Vincent, in which McCarthy plays opposite Bill Murray.

    • Sorry Amber, but I couldn’t disagree more. I find Melissa McCarthy singularly unfunny and boorish. Instead of “cry-your-eyes-out” I’ve wanted to gouge my eyes out and stick them in my ears so I could neither see her “act” or hear her. Mike and Molly was the most unfunny show I’d seen. People would tell me to give it more time but since there is nowhere to go those hours of my life back I quit watching pretty early on. You refer to “other notable credits” but I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t say they were for quite the same thing!
