Roseanne is back with a vengeance — at least ratings-wise — and with the original cast. But imagine, if you will, that the show premiered in 1988 with a different actor portraying the youngest Conner family member: Macaulay Culkin.

A few years before his breakthrough with Home Alone, Culkin was the network’s pick for the role of D.J., Roseanne Barr says. Michael Fishman explained to Radio Andy host (and fellow Roseanne alum) Sandra Bernhard how he landed the job with the help of his future TV mom.
