Roseanne Barr’s Downwardly Mobile Did Some Last-Minute Recasting


Eureka alumna Salli Richardson is reportedly out as the high-society wife of a Ponzi-scheming hedge-funder in Roseanne Barr's new project for NBC. Deadline says she will be replaced by Tricia O'Kelley, previously on The New Adventures of Old Christine. Apparently, Richardson, a stage veteran, had trouble adjusting to a multi-camera comedy format. While Barr initially stood by her original choice of actress, the switch was finally decided upon after a pilot read-through yesterday.
