TNT Fri. 8 p.m., Fri. 11:30 p.m. U "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" ›› Lucian leads the Lycans against "The Boss" (2016): A quite funny McCarthy rules as a former business magnate who has a tough time readjusting to the outside world after doing time for insider trading. "Spy" (2015): McCarthy is a riot in her most recent teaming with writer-director Paul Feig, as she plays a CIA analyst who becomes a very unlikely field agent. "St. Vincent" (2014): In a change-of-pace role, McCarthy plays a working mom who enlists a new neighbor (Bill Murray) for after-school sitting duties. "The Heat" (2013): McCarthy and Sandra Bullock make a terrific comedic duo as crime-busters targeting a drug kingpin in Boston. "Identity Thief" (2013): A good part for McCarthy casts her as said thief, whose swiping of a same-named businessman's (Jason Bateman) identity prompts him to chase her. "This Is 40" (2012): This Judd Apatow- directed comedy, which focuses on Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann's characters from "Knocked Up," marks one of the rare times McCarthy has taken a supporting role since "Bridesmaids." "Bridesmaids" (2011): Well, of course. In the role that immediately elevated her pop-culture standing and earned her an Oscar nomination, McCarthy plays a memorably bawdy wedding- attendant-to-be. "The Back-Up Plan" (2010): McCarthy does all she can with a traditional good- friend in this comedy about an artificially inseminated woman's (Jennifer Lopez) new romance. "The Life of David Gale" (2003): As her character name – Nico the Goth Girl – suggests, McCarthy is a brief standout in this Kevin Spacey- starring drama. "Charlie's Angels" (2000): Though it's sort of a blink-and-you'll-miss-it role, McCarthy started to get a foothold in movies by appearing in producer and star Drew Barrymore's update of the female- detective television series.
