Juliette Lewis Lands Guest Role on 'The Conners'

The 'Natural Born Killers' star proudly announces her involvement on the 'Roseanne' spin-off with a snap of her seated between Johnny Galecki and Sara Gilbert.

AceShowbiz - The "Roseanne" cast has added a "Natural Born Killer" to its ranks for the sitcom's spin-off - Juliette Lewis will join the gang for "The Conners".

The actress has landed a guest-starring role as the girlfriend of Johnny Galecki's character, David.

The casting is a little odd as the two former child stars once played brother and sister in 1989 comedy "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation".

Juliette broke the news on Instagram with a photo of herself seated between castmates Galecki and Sara Gilbert, who is also an executive producer of the new show.

"HERE'S THE BIG NEWS!!," Lewis wrote. "Look what I'm doin!!"

Lewis joins another newcomer, Maya Lynne Robinson, on the series, which also features John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman, and Emma Kenney reprising roles they played on "Roseanne".

The show, which was revived earlier this year, became a surprise hit, but ABC network bosses cancelled a second season after the sitcom's star Roseanne Barr posted a racially insensitive tweet aimed at one of former U.S. leader Barack Obama's aides.

As a result, the show has been renamed "The Conners" and Roseanne will not be making an appearance. According to her, the character she played has been killed off after suffering a prescription drug overdose.
