Lauren Fleishman Nielsen: Jane Lynch or Melissa McCarthy

Lynch was a popular suggestion amongst our readers, but so was actress Melissa McCarthy, who was Oscar-nominated for her role in "Bridesmaids" and won the Emmy for her work on television's "Mike & Molly." On screen and television, McCarthy has great comic timing and would be a great fit for the overbearing orphanage matron Hannigan.
