Cecily Strong: SO hot right now (Cecily…). She hosted the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday, her jokes sparing no victim (including the POTUS).

Not even a week later, the SNL star jumped in the latest Melissa McCarthy vehicle Michelle Darnell, Universal announced Tuesday.

McCarthy plays the titular character, described as “a titan of industry” popped for insider trading who tries to reconstruct her life and image. As of now, the cast is rounded out by a pair of strong actresses in Kathy Bates and Kristen Bell and the inimitable Peter Dinklage (aka the Dinkles). Ben Falcone, McCarthy’s husband, will direct the script penned by McCarthy, Falcone, and Steve Mallory.
