Watch: Melissa McCarthy From ‘Bridesmaids’ And Jason Bateman Co-Star In ‘Identity Thief’


Recently at the 2012 Emmy Awards, we were all reminded of how insanely awesome Melissa McCarthy is and such a reminder comes just in time. The actress who had us all cracking up during Bridesmaids is now starring alongside Jason Bateman in the movie Identity Thief. The title is pretty self-explanatory and Melissa’s role looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun to watch. The director is Seth Gordon (the guy who brought us Horrible Bosses) and, based on the trailer, I think we can expect good things. My favorite part is the part with T.I. Seriously. Don’t blink or you’ll miss him (that’s not a height joke either; luvya T.I.)! Peep the trailer for more!

Shouts-out to PITNBRĀ Dach! Thought of you when I saw this :)

    I’m going to be honest, I don’t think it looks good at all! I’d love to see Melissa McCarthy is a serious role, I really think she has it in her her to do a dramatic performance.

      Megan, I think you’re right about seeing McCarthy in a serious role. This is def not that, but it’ll be cool to see her branch out like that.
