Back on the original series, George had a recurring role as Booker Brooks, the Wellman Plastics supervisor/foreman of Roseanne and Jackie (Laurie Metcalf).
So Roseanne thought she’d shoot her shot and ask him if he’d like a cameo on the revival.
His refusal to be on the show was still shocking, however, especially given since his role was so memorable for fans. But the 65-year-old comedienne did admit that there might have been some drama between the two in the past.
“He’s said some really silly things about me, but I still love him,” she said. Back in the day, the 56-year-old prankster convinced Roseanne to take a bat to a giant chocolate cake the network gave after the show slid into the #1 slot, because he knew others who got better gifts. She did, took a pic of hit and sent it to the network, which got her in some hot water.
