Melissa McCarthy reveals the origins of The Boss

Melissa McCarthy has revealed that the character Michelle Darnell from her upcoming film, The Boss, was originally created for a comedy sketch 15 years ago in a new video about the film.

While The Boss‘s Darnell has more depth than the gender-bent Donald Trump of the original sketch, according to director Ben Falcone believes “she looks very much like she does in the movie”.
