Melissa McCarthy Explains How Playing Sean Spicer On SNL Came About

In an appearance on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Friday, Melissa McCarthy talked about how her Sean Spicer impression on 'Saturday Night Live' came out.

"I look so much like my dad," McCarthy said when Ellen DeGeneres showed a photo of the two side by side. "I feel like my dad and Sean Spicer had a baby, and it's me. Which makes it even stranger."

The actress said a friend, who is a writer on the NBC comedy series, first brought up the idea to her.

She said she thought "WHAT!? How am I going to do that?"

But once she began the task, McCarthy says she wanted to go all the way.

"Then, I got into it," she said, "'cause I was like, 'Can I have eye bags?' And the answer was yes."
