Second Time Around: Melissa McCarthy To Host 'Saturday Night Live' In April

One of Hollywood’s most sought-after comic actresses is set to host Saturday Night Live once more. Melissa McCarthy is rumored to be hosting the show in April, according to Us Weekly. It’s the second time in two years that the Bridesmaids star has taken on the hosting duties for the high profile chat show and she’ll be reappearing on our screens on April 6, 2013.

The Oscar-nominated comic star has been in the cinemas recently with Identity Thief, which defied the seriously negative response that it got from movie critics, to top the box office charts on its release. Also starring Jason Bateman, the movie is a comic caper about a con-woman (McCarthy) who steals a man’s identity (Bateman) and subsequently threatens his chances of a work promotion. He manages to track her down and a battle of wills commences. McCarthy’s career began when she worked for an improv troupe in Los Angeles. Her debut Saturday Night Live stint in October got rave reviews and it’s likely that the loveable actress will do the same this time around.
