Mike and Molly Trivia

Reno Wilson and Billy Gardell also played cops who were partners in the 2006 movie, "Heist". Billy Gardell again played a cop on 12 episodes of "My Name is Earl".

Some may think that a show about two overweight people could be offensive and even Melissa McCarthy said that before she read the first script she wanted no part of it. (The thought of) "It upset me", she said. But in truth, the show just shows that those who are overweight are just regular people in every other way with the same hopes and dreams. The also reflects real life in the way that some people wrongly treat another just because they are different in one way. While the main characters are larger than normal in size, the main theme of the show centers around the interactions between Mike, Molly, their friends and family plus the humorous situations that result from those interactions.

Many fans will know Melissa McCarthy from her co-starring role as "Sookie St. James" on "The Gilmore Girls" followed by another regular role as "Dena" on "Samantha Who?". You may also have heard of Melissa's cousing, "Jenny McCarthy".

Billy Gardell does what just seems to make sense for an actor but is rarely done. Many of the characters he has portrayed have been given his real-life name, "Billy".

Swoosie Kurtz's father was a U.S. Air Force Colonel so she grew up in eight different States and moved seventeen times while attending school. She got her first name due to an aircraft that her father flew in World War II called the "Swoose" from a song about a bird that was half swan and half goose. After the attack on Pearly Harbor the U.S. military was patching together whatever parts they could to keep the war effort alive and the Swoose was two different models of B-17s that had been combined to make a working airplane.

Swoosie's dad was also a contestant on the game show, "To Tell the Truth" in 1962. When it came time to reveal who was the "real" Colonel Frank Kurtz, an 18-year-old Swoosie came out on stage and identified her father! Swoosie had already begun her career six years earlier than that in 1956 on the daytime soap opera, "As the World Turns". Mike and Molly will be Swoosie's 84th TV and movie credit. Perhaps her best known role was as "Alexandra Reed Halsey Barker" on the 1991-1996 series, "Sisters".
