Exclusive Look at 5 Projects with Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone

Exclusive Look at 5 Projects with Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone
In this week’s Variety cover story, Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone talk about diving into comedy production with their own company, On the Day. The first project on the list: “Tammy,” which opens Fourth of July weekend, about a Midwestern heroine who takes a road trip with her alcoholic and promiscuous grandmother (Susan Sarandon). McCarthy stars, co-wrote the script, produces the film and even considered co-directing until her TV schedule with CBS’ “Mike and Molly” got in the way. Instead, the director job went to her husband (and frequent comedy collaborator) Falcone, who additionally co-wrote the script with her (on napkins), executive produces and pops up as a grumpy fast food manager in early scenes.

Over a 2.5-hour dinner in Budapest last May, the McCarthy-Falcones gave Variety an exclusive look at their upcoming projects.

She still resides in a small three-bedroom house in Los Angeles suburb Toluca Lake with her husband, Ben Falcone.

Their two young daughters share a room, and her Mac computer is packed in the closet.

“We’re in the tiniest bedroom on Earth,” McCarthy confesses. On the morning of the 2012 Oscars, when she was getting dolled up for her big evening as a supporting actress nominee for her breakout role as the loudmouth sidekick in “Bridesmaids,” she didn’t have any space in the house to get dressed. “I had my stylist come to my garage,” McCarthy says. “My friends are like, ‘Get it together!’”

McCarthy recounts this story on a recent evening in Budapest over a long dinner of veggie burgers, cucumber salad and beer. Her husband of nine years,
