However, Xin, Leader of the pack, is not impressed with Viktor’s comeuppance. He knows that when the shit hits the fan - they all come crawling back to Daddy. .."

KUDOS!


     Kudos to Melissa McCarthy for her excellent SNL gig. She even played a hilarious female version of a University Coach acting out against her players in a crude take on Rutgers University's  fired coach Mike Rice.
     Quite easily, her accomplished acting and comedic talent shines through no matter what cloak of character she wears.  I think that it is pretty obvious that Mrs. McCarthy doesn’t need to rely on her weight to get laughs for any performance. On the contrary, I think it can be seen as a triumph that she goes out of her way to choose roles that can be played by any other actor, albeit with less fervor.
      I remember when Will Smith started to first make a name for himself in the 1990’s, starring in such films as Six Degrees Of Separation (1993) to Men In Black (1997). A big deal was made about him being able to choose roles that were not quintessentially created for black men.  Melissa McCarthy has reached this point in her career where she can and has played roles that can be scored by any number of actresses, and it is a feather in her cap that she has not allowed her weight to get in the way of her success.
