On the Roseanne reboot episode “Darlene v. David,” two actors return to reprise their roles. Jonny Galecki (who stars in The Big Bang Theory as Leonard) is back playing David, the father of Darlene’s (Sara Gilbert) daughter. Academy Award winning actress Estelle Parsons also returns. She plays Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) and Jackie’s (Laurie Metcalf) mother Bev. In this episode, Bev leaves her nursing home after an incident and crashes with Roseanne and Dan (John Goodman).
Estelle Parsons has been nominated twice for Academy Awards. The 90-year-old won for Best Supporting Actress for her roles as Blanche in the 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde with Faye Dunaway, Warren Beatty, and Gene Hackman. One year later, she was nominated again for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in the Paul Newman-directed film Rachel, Rachel with Newman’s wife Joanne Woodward. (Newman was nominated for Best Picture; Woodward was nominated for Best Actress in Leading Role.) Roseanne airs Tuesdays at 8pm on ABC.
BONNIE AND CLYDE was nominated for ten Academy Awards, including five for all the bank robbers. Estelle Parsons won for Best Supporting Actress & Burnett Guffey for Best Cinematography. pic.twitter.com/D9i8MCdmm0
