McCarthy Picked To Star In Tinker Bell Movie Headline Confuses Me

I saw a headline recently mentioning that McCarthy was picked to star in the new Tinker Bell movie. That’s all I saw, just that much information. I was confused.

Upon further research, there is apparently an as of yet untitled movie about Tinker Bell that Melissa McCarthy has been supposedly picked to star in.

However, my first thought on seeing the headline was that they were talking about Joseph McCarthy:

This seemed inappropriate for a number of reasons.

For one, Joe’s dead. That could make difficult for filming. For another, he doesn’t really strike me as a Tinker Bell type. This could depend on individual interpretation, but still. Unless Tink plans to ferret out communists in the Lost Boys, Joe seemed an odd choice.

In the end though, I’m glad the film people weren’t as confused as me. I’m betting a Tinker Bell movie with Melissa McCarthy will be a lot funnier than one with Joseph McCarthy. Well, a Joe one could be funny too…but for different and less appropriate reasons.
