Melissa McCarthy Reunites with Gilmore Girls Costar – Is Sookie Coming Back to Stars Hollow?!
Yanic Truesdale grabbed dinner with Melissa McCarthy over the weekend
Are Michel and Sookie bantering away at the Dragonfly Inn again?
Gilmore Girls star Yanic Truesdale – who’s reprising his role as the snobby but beloved concierge in Netflix’s revival – posted a selfie with Melissa McCarthy on Sunday, sparking fervor among fans hoping she’ll end up stopping by the Stars Hollow set as well.
But Truesdale, 45, made it clear the meet-up was for pleasure, not business.
“Scotch, great meal and catching up with my old friend @melissamccarthy, can’t ask for more! Dont read anything into it guys,” he captioned the sweet snapshot.
McCarthy, 45, has become an A-list movie actress since the show ended in 2007, tweeted in February that she wasn’t asked to appear in the new Gilmore Girls miniseries, despite creator Amy Sherman-Palladino originally telling TVLine otherwise.
“She’s really f—ing busy,” Sherman-Palladino said. “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.”
