Plainfield's Melissa McCarthy to Host Pre-Super Bowl SNL
Tune in or set your DVR for the Feb. 1 episode.
While there's no word on the musical guest for the episode, Variety reports that McCarthy will return to the show Feb. 1.
It's been a big year for the St. Francis Academy (now Joliet Catholic) graduate, who starred in the summer hit "The Heat" alongside Oscar winner Sandra Bullock. The movie raked in $40 million in its opening weekend. McCarthy also starred in "Identity Thief" with Jason Bateman.
Next up for McCarthy is "Tammy," co-starring Susan Sarandon. The movie, slated for a July 2014 release, is the story of a woman "who hits the road with her profane, hard-drinking grandmother."
McCarthy's sitcom, "Mike & Molly," is in its fourth season on CBS and airs Mondays at 8 p.m. Central.
