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.”
