Tom Arnold (“True Lies,” “Roseanne”) has joined the cast of writer, producer, and director Rohit Karn Batra’s drama “The Gun on Second Street.”

The film, for which Storyboard Media launched international sales during last year’s Cannes Film Market, is produced by Guy J. Louthan of Ransom Films (“The Call, The Road Within,” “There Be Dragons,” “From Scratch”) with Rikin Shah serving as one of the executive producers.

An allegory of the gun crisis in the United States, “The Gun on Second Street” follows two Pittsburgh police partners and best friends who are called to an uneventful domestic violence dispute on Second Street. This quickly escalates to a violent scuffle as Officer TJ Meadows III accidentally shoots and kills his partner, Officer Kevin Cooper, with his backup gun. Years later, no longer a cop and still traumatized, TJ moves back to Pittsburgh and finds his way to Kevin’s widow, Kacie. Arnold will take on the role of Police Chief Richard “Dick” Steinberger, partner of TJ Meadows III’s father in the ’70s and ’80s, who is assigned to investigate the tragic accident that occurs at TJ’s hands. Poppy Delevingne also stars.

Arnold is an actor and comedian who is best known for his role as Arnie Thomas on the sitcom “Roseanne.” He has gone on to star in several films and television shows, including: James Cameron’s “True Lies,” “Happy Endings” and the Jim Ellis biopic “Pride.” Arnold also had a recurring role on FX’s action crime series “Sons of Anarchy.”

Emmy-nominated Batra directed, wrote, and – together with Louthan – produced the international crime drama “Line of Descent” starring Oscar winner Brendan Fraser. Batra also won the Jury Prize at the Palm Beach International Film Festival Awards for best short film for “Roundabout.

Arnold is represented by Buchwald and LINK Entertainment.
