Melissa McCarthy, Super 8’s Ryan Lee Join Apatow’s This Is Forty


It looks like Judd Apatow’s This Is Forty is going head-to-head with The To Do List for most excellent ensemble cast. Either that, or Apatow just wanted to personally make sure I would see the upcoming Knocked Up spin-off. If so, message received. I’m picking up what he’s putting down. Joining the recently cast Charlyne Yi, Chris O’Dowd and Lena Dunham, Melissa McCarthy and Super 8’s Ryan Lee will play a mother-son duo at the elementary school attended by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann’s children. Alternately, Judd could go ahead and re-cast McCarthy into the original Katherine Heigl role because IF ONLY.
