Billy Gardell of ‘Mike & Molly’ Visits ‘The Talk’ June 16.

CBS comedy star Billy Gardell of ‘Mike & Molly’ wrapped a film in Louisiana called “Dancer and the Dame.” The film tells the story of Detective Dancer, played by Gordell, who struggled with a personal conflict five years before the movie starts. Since his struggle, Dancer gives up on life and his job.

That all ends when he is paired up with a police dog who is also dealing with post dramatic stress. The dog helps Dancer make a life changing turn around. And in response, Dancer does the same for his partner, the Dame.

The twice-written script was originally targeted for an action star. The script was rewritten for Gordell, which switched the film’s genre to comedy.

This will be Gordell’s first starring role. Gordell is also going to do some comedy touring this summer and some club stand-up and then head back to “Mike & Molly” production in July.

Actor Billy Gardell discusses his co-stars and the success of his hit comedy series “Mike & Molly.”
