Reno 911 Star Thomas Lennon who portrayed the famed character Lieutenant Dangle appeared alongside Sharon Osbourne in a recent episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Thomas starts off the segment by leaving clues that he and the Osbourne’s are somewhat connected. He then gives an oh ’so close impersonation of Sharon Osbourne.
Thomas then gets comically personal about his family life comparing it to the Brady Bunch, only the kids are a collection of stuffed animals. “When my now wife and I started dating she had some stuffed animals, I had some stuffed animals so we sort of had a “blended family”. Kelly asked: Are these like “childhood stuffed animals”? For which Thomas jokingly replies: “they were adult stuffed animals that were bought or given to us as adults”.
Kelly: “What do you do with’em”? The audience busts out in laughter and Sharon pulls, well, a “Sharon Face”.
Before discussing what it’s like living in the same town as Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, he continued detailing how he, his wife and all the stuffed animals traveled the world together.
Thomas: “Sharon Ozzy and I, we all live in the same neighborhood. So sometimes I’ll see Sharon on the street but then sometimes what’s unexpected is when you’re at like, the pharmacy and there’s the Prince of Darkness.”
Kelly: “He seems kind of like a sweetheart though?”
Tom: “He’s such a sweetheart except for when you see him at the pharmacy, and you’re like … ha’ omg oh!”
Lieutenant James “Jim” Ronald Dangle is the highest-ranking deputy in the fictitious Reno Sherriff’s Department and was usually seen wearing his trademark short-shorts, which he claims that he wears for “mobility.” In a season 6 episode where the officers watch a video of themselves in the late 1980s, Dangle is seen wearing full-length jeans. Unfortunately, his jeans caught fire, forcing Dangle to cut the bottom parts of his pants off, resulting in the hot-pants he currently wears. [source]
