TV to Movie Stars: Now and Then

Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy may have returned to her TV roots in CBS' Mike & Molly, but the Emmy-award winner first got her big break playing Sookie St. James on Gilmore Girls for seven seasons from 2000 to 2007. Fast forward four years, and McCarthy became a huge scene-stealer in the 2011 comedy hit Bridesmaids. Since then, the actress has been considered one of the biggest breakout film stars, adding Identity Thief, The Hangover Part III and The Heat to her resume.
