Melissa McCarthy Has a Mini 'Gilmore Girls' Reunion -- Does This Mean She'll Be Back for the Netflix Revival?!
By John Boone
Enjoy it, because this might be the closest we get to a Melissa McCarthy-Gilmore Girls reunion.
The actress, who claimed "no one asked" her or Sookie St. James back for the upcoming Netflix revival, had dinner with Yanic Truesdale (aka Michel) over the weekend, and the former co-stars shared a cute selfie on Instagram.
"Scotch, great meal and catching up with my old friend, can't ask for more!" Truesdale wrote.
Lest Gilmore fans get overly excited that this means McCarthy's involvement in the project has changed, Truesdale concluded his caption, "Dont read anything into it guys."
The Ghostbusters star is one of the only members of the original cast who hasn't been confirmed for the four-part revival, with Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel obviously returning as Lorelai and Rory Gilmore and everyone from Scott Patterson (Luke) to Kelly Bishop (Emily), Liza Weil (Paris) to Keiko Agena (Lane), and all of Rory's ex-boyfriends (Jared Padalecki as Dean, Matt Czuchry as Logan, and Milo Ventimiglia as Jess) reprising their roles.
Oddly, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino had already gone on record saying that, while McCarthy is "really f**king busy," she would love for Sookie to appear in one of the mini-movies.
"Melissa was one of us. If she has a spare moment to run over -- even if for just a cameo -- we would be totally game," Sherman-Palladino explained. "And if it's a last-minute thing, I would write her in, and we would figure it out."
