But what about DJ, huh? When’s the last time you saw that kid do anything? That loser!
Actually, the Roseanne cast seems to have done better than other folks from other shows. Except for Roseanne herself. I haven’t seen her lately.
This thread reminds me, though, of television stars who get some fame (or at least, become well-known faces) and then a several years later start popping up in low-budget commercials. I just saw the David Leisure, who played the annoying neighbor on Empty Nest on a lame commercial for a legal firm. I had to do a double-take to make sure that was him. Then there’s Janet Hubert-Whitten, who played the first Vivian (the better one, IMHO) on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Shortly after she quit the show, she was on an aspirin commerical. I haven’t seen her since.
Jill Marie Jones, of Toni Childs fame from Girlfriends, was last seen on a Baily’s Irish creme commerical (or at least, it was some kind of alcholic beverage). I was so pissed when I saw her, because she’s a fine actress (in both looks and acting chops). It seems like such a waste.
So when you see Roseanne on a commericial, not as a spokesperson but as just another low-paid actor pushing hemorroid cream, then you can talk about curses.
