En Route To Weight Loss
Billy Gardell, a stand-up comedian, and a voice artist, gained recognization for his role as an overweighed lover in Mike and Molly's series. Although the actor had performed in other movies and TV shows, including Bad Santa, Avenging Angelo, and Dragon Wars: D-War, he has received the most acclamation playing the obese man.
The obesity of the characters contributed to the story of the show, but that did not stop Billy to shed some of those extra fats.
The creator of the show was more supportive of the comedian's path to living a healthier life. According to Billy, CBS even hired a trainer for him. Billy, who has a net worth of $8 million, divulged that he wanted to lose some of the extra fats in his body as he desired to be around his boy, but his knees couldn't take the weight of his body.
The actor began working out under the supervision of a trainer back in October 2011. Within a year, Billy had shed over 50 pounds and was looking forward to losing more of it. Billy, who has tours coming up this December, last recorded losing 70 while he still had 80 to work for.
Well, with his constant effort, Billy finally found himself feeling healthier just as he took new projects of movies and tv shows, taking him to the height of success.
