Billy Gardell Says Melissa McCarthy Is Famous, He's Vaguely Recognized (VIDEO)

Billy Gardell, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'He may have a starring role in a hit television sitcom, but Billy Gardel told 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC) that he has no delusions of stardom. His co-star, Melissa McCarthy, though? Gardell says she's famous now after stealing the show in the 'Bridesmaids' movie.

"I'm still getting those looks like they're not sure," he explained. "I get that look on the street like, 'Are you on TV or did you fix our toilet? I know I know you from somewhere.'"

If that's the case now, it's only going to be a matter of time before Gardell's face is known by more people. If nothing else, McCarthy's success in 'Bridesmaids' could draw more viewers to the second season of 'Mike & Molly' this fall, which would help Gardell's star rise as well. It's a win-win-win (the third one is for us, because we get another season of their irresistible adorableness).

I would argue that Melissa has been "famous" since Gilmore Girls. I think she was pretty recognizable while on that show.
