Report: Melissa McCarthy Courted for Cameo in “The Hangover 3″

Warner Brothers is working to get Melissa McCarthy to make a cameo in The Hangover 3, snoopsters tell Variety.

Nothing’s set in stone just yet, but sources for the trade paper say McCarthy’s involvement in the third installment of the raucous comedy is “likely.” If the actress does sign on for a Hangover, she’ll join that already includes returning stars Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Justin Bartha and Heather Graham.

McCarthy — who stars in the hit CBS comedy Mike and Molly — snatched a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for her knee-slapping role in the 2011 box office smash Bridesmaids.

The Hangover 3 will hit theaters May 24, 2013.
