12 Celebrities You Forgot Appeared On Roseanne
Throughout Roseanne’s nine-season run, many celebrities made guest appearances. From those just getting their start in the industry to some of the biggest stars of the decade, take a look back at 12 popular celebrities you forgot made an appearance on Roseanne!
12. Bruce Willis
There were many memorable famous faces on Roseanne over the years, but even the most passionate fans might not remember Bruce Willis’ very brief cameo. The popular star made a seemingly random appearance during the end credits of the season one episode “Dear Mom and Dad.” Willis appeared during the end credits when Roseanne calls for her husband in bed, and Willis shows up instead of John Goodman. The cameo was so small and he had absolutely no role in the show and, since many viewers don’t pay attention to the end credits anyway, it was mostly missed when it aired. While it might have seemed completely random, Roseanne Barr and Bruce Willis had lent their voices to the film Looks Who’s Talking Too and with Roseanne still in its first season, having star power like Bruce Willis come on set definitely didn’t hurt its popularity.
11. Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio has been a star for most of his life, and had no problem making it big even as a child actor, but before his roles in Parenthood, Growing Pains, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and well before Titanic, he was in Roseanne. At the time that he appeared on the show in the season three episode “Home-Ec,” it was only his fifth acting role and he was credited simply as “Darlene’s Classmate.” In the episode, DiCaprio had no lines and was simply seated beside Darlene for the home-ec class led by her mother, Roseanne, which leaves Darlene very embarrassed. That very same year of his Roseanne appearance, DiCaprio began his run as Garry Buckman in Parenthood as well as Luke Brower in Growing Pains and it didn’t take long for him to become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after young stars.
