Melissa McCarthy to Show Off Dramatic Chops in Cop Movie

Melissa McCarthy is going to show off a different side of her acting chops in an upcoming dramatic Untitled Female Boston Cop project!

The Oscar-nominated actress, who is best known for starring in comedies, will play one of the first women to join the Boston police department back in the 1970s.

The movie will be based on a book proposal by Alexandra Lydon and Melissa will produce it with husband Ben Falcone.

The film “tells the true story of the first female police in one of Boston’s most turbulent decades. Taking place in the 1970s, the book chronicles the transition of black and white women into the notorious old boys’ club of the Boston Police Department, as they find themselves on the front lines of a racially divided city and became unwitting participants in a social revolution,” according to Deadline.

'SNL' Cast Reveal Secrets Behind Their Trump Characters!

THR‘s latest cover features SNL‘s biggest Donald Trump character spoofs including Alec Baldwin as the president, Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer, Beck Bennett as Vladimir Putin, Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway and Jeff Sessions, and Cecily Strong as Melania Trump.

Here’s what the comedians had to share with the mag:

Alec, on playing Trump: “I’m not going to name names, but a cabinet member walked up to me at a restaurant in Manhattan — Manhattan, that’s a hint — and he goes, ‘I gotta tell you something. This thing you’re doing is good, it’s really good,’ ” says the 59-year-old actor. “He goes, ‘I’ll get fired if anybody quoted me saying this, but that’s exactly what he’s like when you do it.’”

Melissa, on transforming into Sean Spicer: “I don’t do impressions. I don’t have the ear for it. But when I read the script, I was like, ‘Oh, God, that is juicy, but I don’t understand how we’re going to physically make it work.’ To which the amazing special effects person at SNL was like, ‘Oh, yeah, that’s not that big of a deal. That’s gonna take me, like, 15 minutes.’ I was like, ‘Hey!’”

Beck, on why his Putin is shirtless: “When I did the cold open with John Goodman [as Rex Tillerson] and Alec [in December], Lorne wanted to make sure that my Putin impression was entertaining throughout the scene as opposed to just one silly beat, which is what it had been before. He said, ‘Let him be that sort of Bond villain — he enjoys his power, he’s having fun with everybody. People want to laugh with him, so let’s see the silly side of Putin.’ Then when we were rehearsing it, he came by and said (in Michaels’ voice), ‘And with the shirt off.’”
