Got A Girl Crush On: Melissa Leo’s Hilarious Fight for Blowie Equality

Catching up on this season of Louie, I could hardly contain myself when Melissa Leo first walked into the liquor store. I love Melissa Leo. I can’t really explain this love much more than just saying that this woman’s Je ne sais quoi is just so, undeniably, bad-ass. I just kept watching and waiting, knowing that Louis C.K. must also recognize this, while praying that he wrote a role worthy for her.

Thankfully, my prayers were answered (You’re the man, Louis). Her 15 minute performance was like a beautiful, flaming, meteor on a hilariously unexpected collision course. There’s just something so deeply satisfying about watching a respectable, oscar-winning, actress climb on top of Louis C.K.’s head yelling, “Lick it! Lick it! Lick it or I’ll break your finger!”

“What’s wrong with this country?!” Well it’s definitely not Melissa Leo.
