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”.


The Boss opens in all its glory this Thursday 14th April.
