John Goodman And Roseanne Reunion: Actor Close To Joining NBC Pilot 'Downwardly Mobile' (REPORT)

"Roseanne" fans should sit down on a big, comfy couch for this one.

Fifteen years after the end of their hit sitcom "Roseanne," John Goodman may be reuniting with Roseanne Barr in the NBC comedy pilot "Downwardly Mobile," Variety reported.

Goodman recently told The Huffington Post: "I wouldn't mind being on a series again. You get tired living out of a suitcase."

He is allegedly close to finalizing a deal to co-star in Barr's pilot, according to Variety. Goodman and Barr previously played functionally dysfunctional TV spouses from 1988 to 1997.

On the recently-announced pilot for "Downwardly Mobile," Barr stars as the proprietor of a mobile home park who becomes a surrogate mother to its financially struggling residents.

Goodman has returned to the screen in recent years in HBO's "Treme," DirecTV's "Damages" and the Oscar-nominated film "The Artist." And Roseanne is slowly making her way back into the spotlight as well. In the summer of 2011, she was featured on her own Lifetime reality series "Roseanne's Nuts." She also put her name on California's primary ballot for the Green Party.
