Roseanne Says George Clooney Turned Down Appearing In the ABC Revival


During their chat, Stern asked Barr if there was anyone from the original cast who wouldn't agree to return to the new "Roseanne".

"Well, we had had some problems [with the network] before that", responded Barr, confirming that Clooney's well-earned reputation as a practical joker extended as far back as his "Roseanne" days. While the changes were well-received by some, others couldn't get past Roseanne's right-leaning political views.

"I think Trump's stealing my act", the 65-year-old comedian and actress shared during the "Howard Stern" show on Sirius XM Radio. "He is the president, and we are in a war, so I think we should all pull together and, uh, try to get over our great divide", Barr said. "It's just how we deal with everything within the group, and we disagree or not it's really not that big a deal", Goodman said. "I thought that this was an important thing to say at this time", she added.

"Oh, I knew they could do it if they wanted to", Barr said.




Also on the new Roseanne is Laurie Metcalf as Jackie Harris. The episode saw Roseanne take digs at Hillary Clinton and the NFL players who took a knee during the national anthem while Jackie - pink p***y hat and "nasty woman" shirt and all - took shots at Trump and Roseanne's love of guns before admitting that she felt bullied by her sister into voting for Jill Stein.

More than two decades since its season 9 finale, the Conner family is set to make their comeback with the premiere of ABC's Roseanne revival Tuesday night.

Emmy-winning and groundbreaking sitcom "Roseanne" will return to the ABC network on Tuesday, March 27, at 8:30 p.m. with an hour-long premiere.
