Her character is named Barb Fleming. Barb. Fleming.

In what might seem like run-of-the-mill entertainment news, a talented comedic actress has taken the role of the wife in a comedy centered on a competition between two men. The film in question is Why Him, which stars Bryan Cranston as a midwestern father and James Franco as the Silicon Valley entrepreneur Cranston’s daughter starts dating in college. The actress in question is Megan Mullally, which — one hopes — would mean that the character she’s playing might be a little more unhinged than your average prim comedy wife. This is Tammy 2 we’re talking about. Please put her ability to go apeshit to good use.
