Melissa McCarthy has been spotted in New York City in her already-iconic role as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

McCarthy's speedy journey to the Five-Timers Club puts her in the exclusive company of great Saturday Night Live hosts, including Steve Martin, Tom Hanks, Justin Timberlake, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

In a promo for the upcoming episode, McCarthy teased the return of her Sean Spicer impression. McCarthy's presence on the streets was captured by many eager locals, as seen below. This is an incontestable fact - just watch a recent episode of "Saturday Night Live" in which McCarthy dons a suit and Spicer-esque combover.

Although McCarthy/Spicer initially greets the audience with her now-famous scowl, her expression quickly softens into one of joy.

McCarthy's "Spicey" character is one of the most beloved now on SNL as McCarthy transforms the Press Secretary's latest gaffes into hilarious parody.

She addressed the "rocky start" that Spicer and the press had: "When I say rocky start, I mean it in the sense of Rocky the movie". Casual spectators tweeted their sightings, causing Melissa McCarthy to trend on Twitter.

So, YES, Saturday Night Live is all new tonight!

Joining McCarthy, the musical guest for the show is the band HAIM. Numerous passersby caught video of McCarthy rolling down 58th Street outside the Time Warner Center in the motorized podium that has been used in her previous Spicer sketches. CNN's Brian Stelter tweeted that McCarthy was filming outside of the network's headquarters Friday morning, May 12.
