Melissa McCarthy Is 'Very Done' With Playing Sean Spicer on 'SNL'

Comedy powerhouse Melissa McCarthy has made audiences fall in love with her in many roles. Most recently, her stint on “Saturday Night Live” playing former White House press secretary Sean Spicer has been a hit.

In 2017, McCarthy won best guest actress on a comedy series at the Creative Arts Emmys for her impersonation of Spicer. However, when the actress sat down at the Variety Studio presented by AT&T at the Toronto Film Festival, she revealed she isn’t planning on reprising the parody any time soon. “I’m very done in so many ways with Sean Spicer. I think we all are.”

Spicer is currently developing a talk show in which he will interview important people in a casual setting. When asked by Variety’s Jenelle Riley how it’s possible that the controversial political figure is becoming a TV talk show host, McCarthy replied, “How could he do so many things?”
