The 41st Annual People's Choice Awards - Red Carpet

Melissa McCarthy is an obvious choice for a major role in the "Ghostbusters" reboot, but it's not yet clear if the leading lady has time in between her TV show and upcoming film projects to fight the supernatural.

There are so many reasons why we're desperate for her to rock one of those fancy proton packs! She's funny as heck. She does physical comedy with aplomb. She and "Ghostbusters" director Paul Feig ("The Heat," "Bridesmaids," the upcoming "Spy") work together really well. Plus, she's just awesome.

That very awesomeness means McCarthy's a busy lady, despite what nay-sayers nay-said about the less-than-stellar response to "Tammy." In between "Mike & Molly," she's also slated to star in another movie with "Tammy" collaborator (and husband) Ben Falcone called "Michelle Darnell." Can she rearrange her dance card to accommodate some ghost bustin'? There aren't any offers in place yet, but here's hoping.
