Clip du jour: John Taylor looking hot on 'Samantha Who?'

On the Jan. 26 episode of ABC’s Samantha Who?, Duran Duran’s John Taylor guest stars as Tommy Wylder, a famous rocker Samantha (Christina Applegate) begins to date. As my friend Sheila noted when she sent me the link to the sneak peek below, Melissa McCarthy, who plays Samantha’s friend Dena, deserves an Emmy nomination. Or, at the very least, a nod in EW’s second annual EWwy Awards for the Emmy snubbed.

    I loved Melissa McCarthy as Sookie on Gilmore Girls, so it’s no surprise that she is equally hilarious in a different show with a semi-different role. When she licks his glass, omgoodness!

    Anyone who spent 5 seconds watching Gilmore Girls over the years knows that Melissa McCarthy is hilarious. I love that woman.

  • Smoochie

    I love Melissa and Christina is awesome in this not always good show.

    I don’t even watch Samantha Who? but that clip was hilarious! Melissa acted just how I would’ve in 1984 when I was in high school and loving John Taylor.

    I met Melissa at the LA premiere of ‘The Nines’ and she was a very sweet and funny. Her performance in that movie is excellent, and the movie itself is great too. I highly recommend people check it out!

    LOL! I’ve never watched the show but was a huge Duran fan back in the 80’s as a middle school kid – that was very funny.

    Samantha Who? deserves more love. The acting is so funny! And I love how they have a real pop star play a pop star, especially when that pop star is John Taylor from Duran Duran!

    I think the Samantha Who? cameras were following me around in the 8th grade (although I doubt I would have behaved as well as Melissa did). Can’t wait for the ep to air….
