McCarthy best known for his Brat Pack status in 1980s films like Pretty In Pink, St. Elmos Fire, and Mannequin plays a charming billionaire who woos sexy starlet Lindsay Price on Lipstick Jungle.
Luckily for McCarthy, his real life spouse loves the girl power series so much, he has her blessing to film steamy love scenes with Price whenever its necessary for the show.
He explains, My spouse loves the show because its about powerful, strong women. So shes surprisingly okay with my love scenes with Lindsay [Price]. Theres less jealousy at home with this project, so thats always nice!
But the sexy scenes with Price arent the only draw of Lipstick Jungle for McCarthy.
He is also attracted to the show because it treats women with good regard and a sense of delight, and hes a fan of producer Candace Bushnell, mastermind behind the ultimate gal-centered series, Sex And The City.
Lipstick Jungle premieres tonight (Feb. 7) on NBC.
