How Tammy Found A Comedy Legend To Play Melissa McCarthy's Dad

Casting an actor to play a character’s dad in a movie or television show can be tricky waters to navigate. On the one hand there’s the importance of matching certain genetic features, making sure that actor has some similar features and is age appropriate. Perhaps more important, however, is having a higher understanding of personality and making sure that there are some familiar patterns and mannerisms that can be matched and show link between parent and offspring.

Melissa McCarthy Takes An Awkward, Foul-Mouthed Field Trip For Tammy Trailer

Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon end up in a car together, and they are heading to Niagara Falls, creating chaos along the way as they learn a bit more about each other… and a bit more about themselves.

Beth McCarthy Set To Direct Melissa McCarthy's Comedy Tammy

While a Bridesmaids sequel without Kristen Wiig could be out of the question for Melissa McCarthy, we will be seeing the Mike & Molly star back on the big screen eventually.

Tate Taylor Taps Out Of Melissa McCarthy's Tammy

The same goes for Taylor, who might be wise to play the waiting game before selecting his next project. Depending on whom you trust, Taylor’s The Help could be a major player in this year’s still-developing Oscar race. And a select few Oscar trackers are saying the film’s pull could drag Taylor into the Best Director race as a result. If that’s the case, he suddenly could have his pick of a series of prestige projects, so there’s no need to jump on a film just yet.

The Help Director Tate Taylor Could Helm Melissa McCarthy's Tammy

I actually really like the idea of breakout stars working together. They all have something to prove with their next efforts, so why not work together to produce the best work that they can?

What’s on the horizon for her? Quite possibly a starring role in New Line’s Tammy.

Parks And Recreation Season 4 Preview Reveals The Two New Tammys

Yep. All in one upcoming episode, the two ex-wives; the "raging hellcat who uses her sexual wiles" and the "ice cold, dangerous, steely and maternal" wife. Well, if anyone can stand up to those two, it's Tammy 0 in a 'Moonshine Battle Royale?' And cut to the montage. This season looks like a lot of fun, and I think word of mouth may have caused the fan base to grow in the off-season
