Reno, now living in Los Angeles via the Brooklyn, has played many parts and is now gaining recognition on CBS’s hit show Mike and Molly, but Reno also supports many causes including ThinkCure who’s mission is to fight cancer.
My wife and I love the show Mike and Molly and so I was very pleased to see and meet Reno at the GBK Gifting Suites for the Golden Globes.
Reno was having fun cracking up all the vendors with his easy and friendly sense of humor.
Reno is the kind of guy who looks you in the eye and is interested in your name and who you are. It made this interview very friendly and fun.
I need to take you up on that spin class…. Thanks Reno – JW
