We all love The Great British Bake-Off (or, as it’s referred to in the States, The Great British Baking Show), and considering the competition show’s massive popularity even amongst people who can’t boil water without catching something on fire, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood came up with a mockumentary version. Enter Cook Off!
Emma Stone has come a long way from her La La Land character Mia’s humble barista origins: she’s now the highest-paid actress of this year, thanks mostly to last year’s Damien Chazelle film that rocketed her around the awards circuit last winter.
SNL declared its final hosts of the season earlier than usual, tying the announcements of Jimmy Fallon, Chris Pine, Melissa McCarthy and Dwayne Johnson to its live coast-to-coast debut. Now, the final shows have Katy Perry and others among the musical guests, assuming the Writers Guild strike doesn’t shutter the season early.
After months of uncertainty and an awkward public back-and-forth between Melissa McCarthy and Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, it’s finally, officially, 100 percent all happening. Yes, McCarthy is returning to reprise her role as Sookie St. James, the greatest (and clumsiest) chef in Stars Hollow, and the most reliable pal a cool single mom like Lorelai Gilmore could hope for.
Even before Netflix officially announced a four-part Gilmore Girls revival coming to the streaming service, it hadn’t seemed particularly likely Melissa McCarthy might find time to reprise her role as Sookie St. James. McCarthy even downplayed that she’d been asked at first, but now officially confirms that she won’t have time for a role.
"Spy" is an action/comedy movie. And while I'm usually not really keen on action movies, I do enjoy a good comedy. And although "Spy" is silly, there are some pretty funny one-liners. And Melissa McCarthy is always entertaining.
