There has been a lot of talk about the forthcoming 'Roseanne' spin-off 'The Conners' in recent days, but none of them have mentioned the possibility of re-casting the character of Roseanne Barr - until now.

According to Jerry Seinfeld, the former central character of the show should be played by another actress in the new re-jigged format.

"I think they should get another Roseanne,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “They brought Dan Conner back, he was dead and they brought him back. So, why can’t we get another Roseanne?”

He added: "There’s other funny women that could do that part. You need to get the comic in there. I hate to see a comic lose a job.”

Seinfeld didn't have any suggestions on who that comic might be, but said of Barr's recent self-destruction: "I never saw someone ruin their entire career with one button push. That was fresh.”

Who do you think could play the new Roseanne?
