Melissa McCarthy’s 7 Best Moments of 2015

Ghostbusters

2. Landing a Role in the Ghostbusters Reboot

Melissa McCarthy was included in the phantom-fighting foursome alongside her Bridesmaids costar Kristen Wiig and Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

Some original Ghostbusters fans weren’t really into the idea, but you and I both know that the Comic Con crowd will be overjoyed and most welcoming of Melissa and her costars when the new movie comes out.
