Sal Barone

  1. Michael Fishman, Roseanne, TV, 1988-97. At eight, the Hollywood kid played DJ in the pilot – his one and only acting job. During the following  writers’ strike, the producers went a year younger – just as Sal’s mother  took him  out of the show. Both moves for the same reason: friction  between  Sal and his screen sibling Sarah Gilbert. – as the kids of Roseanne Barr and John Goodman. Barr preferred Fishman because (a) he told her a joke when asked to (“Why did the turtle cross the road? it was the chicken’s day off”) and (b) he resembled her family.
