Sorry, not sorry for that headline. Melissa McCarthy’s next project has been assembling a fairly impressive cast so far, with Peter Dinklage taking on an antagonistic role and McCarthy’s Tammy co-star Kathy Bates also signing on for the new project. Today brings yet another excellent casting choice, as Kristen Bell has hopped aboard McCarthy’s latest comedy with an appropriately sweet role.

Following the news that Peter Dinklage has found a director for his leprechaun comedy comes an update on his other upcoming project, Melissa McCarthy’s Michelle Darnell. McCarthy’s Tammy co-star (and generally awesome actor) Kathy Bates will star alongside McCarthy and Dinklage in Michelle Darnell, taking the role of Michelle’s mentor, which means we might see Bates get to do some Oprah-esque acting.

That Melissa McCarthy is one busy lady. In addition to reuniting with ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘Spy’ director Paul Feig for his upcoming ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot, she’s also set to play Tinker Bell in a new Shawn Levy movie, and she’s producing and starring in ‘Michelle Darnell.’ And she just picked up her first great co-star for the latter: ‘Game of Thrones’ star Peter Dinklage.

Melissa McCarthy is inarguably one of our most talented (and hardest working) actresses—if only some of her film projects could measure up to her greatness. Before the Academy Award-nominated actress plays Tinker Bell for Shawn Levy, she’ll appear in ‘Michelle Darnell,’ a film which sees her reuniting with her husband and ‘Tammy’ director Ben Falcone. Fingers crossed that this project is a little better than ‘Tammy.’
