[Warning: If you can’t tell by the headline above, spoilers follow.]

ABC’s “Roseanne” spinoff “The Conners” kicked off its season premiere with confirmation that the character once played by Roseanne Barr had been killed off the series after suffering an opioid overdose from pills she was taking to treat a knee injury.

Remember Those Horrifying Monsters in A Quiet Place? John Krasinski Played One of Them
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt hushed us into complete suspense in A Quiet Place.

And if you have any doubts about the validity of his dedication to portraying the monsters, Kimmel whipped out a hilarious photo of Krasinski in full character as an other-worldly beast.

"Yeah . . . that's embarrassing," John joked as soon as he saw the photo. "They took that picture, and I thought I was auditioning for Lion King. I don't know what's going on in that. I was there, though, just dialed in."

Krasinski also talked about getting to star alongside his wife, calling her the "classiest, smartest, most dedicated actress I've ever known." Watch
