When approached by Entertainment Tonight about the cancellation in the wake of Barr’s recent tweetstorm, Goodman said that he would “rather say nothing than to cause more trouble.” As far as his well-being is concerned he says “Everything’s fine.”
ABC had also been planning a ‘For Your Consideration’ Emmy campaign for the show, which has of course also been halted, news of which Goodman responded to with his trademark dark wit, saying, “I wasn’t gonna get an Emmy anyway,” he said. “I’ve been up there eleven times already, and if I didn’t get one I’m not gonna get one.”
He also added that he has stayed away from the tweets, news and controversy surrounding Barr. As far as a rumoured spin-off with his character Dan Conner, don’t count on it: “You’ve heard more than I have,” Goodman told the reporter.
Barr tweeted last night, “I just wish ABC had not thrown two of the greatest actors in the world out with me-Laurie (Metcalfe, who plays Jackie Harris) and John (Goodman, her TV husband). I’m so sick over this-they will never have better character actors on their network.”
