‘Tammy’s’ Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone Build a Comedy Empire One Raunchy Joke at a Time

Melissa McCarthy has emerged as one of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars. But her offscreen lifestyle suggests otherwise.

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.

HBO Orders Tim Robbins And Jack Black To The Brink

12 February 2014 4:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having commissioned the pilot episode of The Brink – a half-hour dark political comedy – last year, HBO has now ordered the show to series, with Tim Robbins and Jack Black heading the cast.

The show centres around the main players caught in a geo-political crisis. Tim Robbins plays the Us Secretary of State, Walter Hollander, who has little patience for war-mongers, while Jack Black plays Alex Coppins – a Foreign Service Officer dealing with the crisis in the field. A third main role – that of a Navy fighter pilot – has yet to be cast, although the wider cast list includes Aasif Mandvi and Meera Syal. The pilot was written by brothers Roberto and Kim Benabib – Roberto having previously worked on Ally McBeal and Weeds. Both will also serve as executive producers, alongside stars Black and Robbins, Jerry Weintraub (Behind The Candelabra) and Jay Roach (The Austin Powers franchise, The Campaign), who also directed the pilot. »
