Sara Gilbert 'comes out' to John Goodman in Roseanne spoof on The Talk
“So, there’s something I’ve been wanting to talk to you about for a while now,” she said Friday to Goodman’s Dan Conner as the two lounged on the Roseanne couch while watching a basketball game. “God, I don’t know how to say this … I’m a talk show host.”
“Wow. As long as you’re happy. Me and your mom will support you,” Goodman, who was promoting his upcoming movie Kong: Skull Island, answered. “You know for a minute there, I thought you were gonna tell me you were gay.”
“Let’s save something for halftime,” Gilbert, an openly gay co-host of The Talk, joked.

Elsewhere on the show, when Goodman’s asked if he’d return for a hypothetical Roseanne reboot, he said, “Oh, hell yes. The Big R (Roseanne Barr) and I did a pilot about five years ago that didn’t go anywhere, right on this very lot, but we were very happy working together. Yeah, I talk to her every once in a while. But if we could get everybody together…”

Gilbert added, “Your only fear is that you don’t want to do a bad version, right? Because you don’t want to damage what’s been done, but I think, yeah, I think it’d be amazing.”
Also on Friday, Goodman appeared alongside his Big Lebowski costar Jeff Bridges as he received a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“He’s a good actor, he’s a good man, John Goodman,” Bridges said in offering an alternate version of the eulogy spoken by Goodman’s character Walter in the Coen brothers 1998 movie. “He’s one of us, he loves the outdoors and acting. As a showman, he has explored the stages from Los Angeles to New York — we’re talking Broadway here, man. He’s done some weird little movies, too. And he’s lived, like so many men in prior generations have lived their lives. He is a man of his times, he’s a man of our times, and he has become a legend.”
