John Goodman best known for his roles on Roseanne, 10 Cloverfield Lane, and Argo has broken his silence and weighed in on the recent cancellation of the Roseanne reboot. But if you’re looking for John Goodman to share his personal views on the issue you’ll be waiting for some time. Goodman decided that he would rather say nothing about the issue that could cause more trouble for those involved in the situation. ABC and Disney canceled the popular series after Roseanne Barr posted a tweet comparing Obama former advisor Valerie Jarrett as a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes. Valerie Jarret is a black woman who was born in Iran. Millions took offense at the tweet while others defended Roseanne.
ABC/Disney immediately took action and called Roseanne’s tweet repugnant and abhorrent, but it was their announcement the tweet and Roseanne’s words were inconsistent with the network’s values that indicated the show would be canceled.
As Roseanne continues to fight the decision, there’s a network of fans who want the show to return but centered on Sara Gilbert’s character instead.
Whether John Goodman would return for a Roseanne revival or another reboot remains to be seen.

John Goodman’s most recent film credit was in the Charlize Theron movie Atomic Blonde. He has one TV movie set for release but doesn’t have a date yet Black Earth Rising.
Goodman will also be seen on the silver screen in the movie Captive State. Captive State has a release date of March 19, 2019.
As Goodman was starring as Dan Connor in the Roseanne reboot he doesn’t have any projects currently in production.
Many of Roseanne’s opponents were upset that due to her tweet, and the subsequent cancellation of Roseanne, 200 of her cast members and those working on the series were immediately put out of a job.
Many have suggested that they kill Roseanne off the series and let the Connor family continue with the show. The most popular suggestion has been that the show focuses on Sara Gilbert who plays Roseanne’s and Dan’s daughter Darlene.
What do you think? Do you hope Roseanne returns with the same lineup or should she be killed off? Would you watch a series featuring Darlene? Do you think if there is a reboot or revival John Goodman should be in it?
