Tuesday night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (weeknights, 12 a.m. EST on ABC) John Goodman talked about working with his old sitcom friend and co-star Roseanne Barr again. News broke last week that he was in talks to join her on a new NBC comedy pilot "Downwardly Mobile" and this conversation certainly made it sound like a done deal. In the series, Barr is set to play the owner of a trailer park, while Goodman is the handyman. But are their characters married, as they were on "Roseanne" from 1998 to 1997?
"No, not yet," Goodman said. "Who knows what'll happen over the years." Of course, the show has to become a hit for NBC like "Roseanne" was for ABC in order for it to even make it years.
"I guess you figured out how to really get along with Roseanne," Kimmel quipped, after describing Barr as crazy.
"We're all crazy in one way or another. But the people love the crazy folks," Goodman laughed.
America certainly does have a penchant for wild personalities on our television screens, but is America ready for Roseanne Barr and John Goodman together again? The nation seems to have embraced Tim Allen's return to television on "Last Man Standing," so why not America's favorite working class couple?
"Downwardly Mobile" is being looked at by NBC for the next fall season. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs weeknights at 12 a.m. EST on ABC.
