Unfortunately, would-be citizens of Stars Hollow should not expect to see Melissa McCarthy in the Gilmore Girls reboot. McCarthy's presence has always been something of a long shot, since the actress has become arguably the most popular of all the Gilmore Girls players, and churns out comedies at a great rate. Why won't she appear? A sad miscommunication is to blame...
There's a Gilmore Girls revival in the works, and it's coming (of course!) courtesy of streaming video giant Netflix. It won't be a full series, though–read on for details, including which cast members are expected to return...and which aren't.
The Gilmore Girls star and well-mustachioed man was remembered in loving tributes from his former castmates, who said Herrmann lit up any room he entered. See what else Lauren Graham and former on-screen wife Kelly Bishop had to say about their friend.
Herrmann had a 40+ year career on screen and stage, but he will be best and most fondly remembered for his work as Rory Gilmore's grandfather Richard. And for his mustache, which he wore beautifully.
