Though they’ve shared the silver screen together before, most notably when Falcone played a deli-meat devouring air marshal who falls in lust with McCarthy in “Bridesmaids,” this is Falcone’s first time behind the camera and thus his first time directing his wife.
“Melissa was like, ‘Hurry, take your shirt off and put on this lunch meat,'” Falcone says, describing the day McCarthy called him to the set of “Bridesmaids” to shoot a post-credit tag. “I’m like, ‘I guess this is what we do on Thursdays?'” Considering he’s the one commanding her to set this time, we feel safe in assuming the power dynamic between them has evolved at least a little.
“Tammy” stars McCarthy as an unlucky woman who loses her job and finds out her husband is carrying on an affair behind her back, all within the span of a few hours. The film opens Friday, July 4.
