Melissa McCarthy Is An 'Identity Thief'
What do you get when Bridesmaids' Megan steals Michael Bluth's identity? That's the, sorta, premise behind the new movie, Identity Theft -- where both Melissa McCarthy and Arrested Development's Jason Bateman fall into roles (strong-willed woman who unselfconsciously throws her weight around, exasperated straight man) they became famous for.
In the film, Jason plays Sandy Bigelow Patterson, a slightly feminine name that makes it all the easier for McCarthy's Diana to co-opt as she spends his cash on recliners, boozy nights out and perms (I'm guessing on the last one).
Inevitably the two forge an uneasy alliance, and hilarity ensues. Again, I'm guessing there, but after watching the trailer, it's more of an educated guess.
Identity Thief opens February 8, 2013.
