'Dancing With The Stars' giving Andy Dick 'Less Than Perfect' reunion (Exclusive)
"Dancing With The Stars" couldn't get any "Less Than Perfect" next week -- for real!
Sara Rue, Zachary Levi and other actors who starred on the comedy series "Less Than Perfect" are set to reunite on the ABC ballroom dancing show on Monday, March 25, to support fellow sitcom alum and contestant Andy Dick, OTRC.com has learned exclusively.
This will mark the first full cast reunion since the comedy ended its four-season run in 2006. Dick played Owen Kronsky, Claude's friend and co-worker. Check out a full list of "Less Than Perfect" alumni who will attend the reunion on "Dancing With The Stars":
Sara Rue -- she played Claude, who works for a TV station, on "Less Than Perfect." She currently plays Kim on the new Reba McEntire sitcom "Malibu Country," which also airs on ABC.
Zachary Levi -- he played the often conniving Kipp on "Less Than Perfect" and later became famous for his title role on the NBC spy comedy series "Chuck."
Sherri Shepherd -- the comedienne played Claude's friend and co-worker Ramona. She later became famous for her work as a co-anchor on ABC's "The View." In 2012, she competed on "Dancing With The Stars" herself. (Check out OTRC.com's exit interview with Sherri Shepherd.)
Andrea Parker -- she played Lydia, Claude's nemesis.
Eric Roberts -- he played egomaniac TV news anchor Will, Claude's boss.
Will Sasso -- he played Carl, Claude's neighbor and friend.
Patrick Warburton -- he played Jeb, also a news anchor and Lydia's boyfriend. He refers to Kipp as "Secretary." The actor is also known for his role as David Puddy from "Seinfeld" and the voice of Kronk in Disney's "The Emperor's New Groove."
Andy Dick's "Dancing With The Stars" journey
At last week's season 16 premiere of "Dancing With The Stars," Dick and partner Sharna Burgess earned 17 out of 30 points for their Foxtrot, ranked in No. 11 out of 12 on the leaderboard.
"You've seen me up and down," Dick told OTRC.com after the taping.
Dick has in recent years battled substance abuse and made headlines over arrests following reports of unruly behavior, which he referenced in interviews that aired on the show. In 2011, he was booked for misdemeanor disorderly conduct involving drugs with alcohol after an incident at a Marie Callender's restaurant in California (see his MUG SHOT).
"This is like a very big high for me. I'm loving this," Dick added in his interview. (WATCH a video of Andy Dick talking to OTRC.com after the "Dancing With The Stars" season 16 premiere.)
"We're just going to work as hard as we've been doing," Burgess said. "I'm happy with a 17 -- it gives us somewhere to go."
The 12 couples will dance again on Monday and one is expected to be eliminated on Tuesday, March 26.
