Melissa McCarthy Stars in 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?' Trailer - Watch Now!

Melissa McCarthy is giving fans a first look at her upcoming flick Can You Ever Forgive Me?

The 47-year-old actress stars in the biopic detailing the literary forgery crimes of author Lee Israel.

Lee was a high-profile magazine writer who fell down on her luck and began forging and selling letters allegedly written by deceased writers. She even stole actual letters from libraries and archives, replacing them with her forgeries.

In 1993, she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to transporting stolen property and later wrote about her criminal exploits in a memoir.

Can You Ever Forgive Me? is set to hit theaters on October 19th.

Keala Settle sings her heart out while performing the Sia song “Bird Set Free” in a new Walmart commercial directed by Melissa McCarthy!

The company commissioned three directors to make a commercial inspired by Walmart’s blue shipping box and they all aired during the Oscars.

In Melissa‘s commercial, Keala plays a woman who finds a box on a subway platform, steps inside of it, and is transported to her childhood when she was too nervous to sing in front of her classmates.

She then whispers into her younger self to give her confidence and she starts belting out the song. The ad then cuts to Keala singing it as an adult!

Melissa McCarthy & Tiffany Haddish Team Up for a Drama!

Melissa McCarthy and Tiffany Haddish teaming up in a movie immediately sounds like the best comedy ever… but the two funny ladies are actually starring in an upcoming drama!

The actresses will work together in the upcoming movie The Kitchen, a story about the Irish mafia that takes place in 1970s New York City. Here is how the story is described (via Deadline): “An FBI sweep catches mob leaders, and while they are under arrest and their criminal enterprise is jeopardized, the mob wives take over. They end up running the illicit business in more vicious fashion than their husbands ever did.”

Tiffany broke out on the scene last year in the comedy Girls Trip and many people think she was snubbed of an Oscar nomination.

Melissa will next be seen in Life of the Party, in theaters on May 11.

Melissa McCarthy makes an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Monday (February 5), and debuts an exclusive trailer from her new film, Life of the Party!

In her upcoming film Life of the Party, the 47-year-old actress plays a middle-aged mom named Deanna who decides to go back to college to finally get her degree. Deanna lands in the same class and school as her daughter (Molly Gordon), who’s not entirely sold on the idea. Plunging headlong into the campus experience, the increasingly outspoken Deanna-now going by Dee Rock-embraces freedom, fun and frat boys on her own terms, finding her true self in a senior year no one ever expected.

Life of the Party reunites Melissa with her writing partner and husband, Ben Falcone, as director, and it also stars Gillian Jacobs, Maya Rudolph and Julie Bowen.

Plus, in honor of Melissa‘s mother-daughter college-themed movie, she and Ellen surprise audience members Chassidy Jackson-Goodwin and her daughter Jaida Jackson from Lincoln, Nebraska to play a “Life of the Party” version of beer pong.
