Melissa McCarthy in Gilmore Girls Revival

Melissa McCarthy on Gilmore Girls Revival Cameo: 'No One Asked Me'

The invitation Melissa McCarthy was sent to appear in Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival? She claims it never reached her.

In response to my story on Monday, in which Gilmore creator Amy Sherman-Palladino said McCarthy has an open invitation to appear in the four-episode continuation, the actress issued the following statement on Twitter:

“She’s really f—ing busy,” Sherman-Palladino acknowledged in the Q&A. “But the thing I have said [to her team] is, ‘Look, if Melissa is available and has an afternoon free, I’ll write her a scene. Melissa was one of us. If she has a spare moment to run over [to the set] — even if for just a cameo — we would be totally game. And if it’s a last-minute thing, I would write her in and we would figure it out. That’s the way we left it.”
