In the age of TV revivals, there’s only one question left to ask: Who’s the Boss?.
The beloved ‘80s sitcom, starring Tony Danza, Judith Light and Alyssa Milano, seems ripe for a reboot, but Light tells ET that might never happen.
“I don't know,” she admits. “Nobody's really talked about it, and I don't know that that would... I mean, we're all working. Tony's got a show on Netflix, Alyssa's working, Danny [Pintauro]'s working, and you know, Katherine [Helmond]'s working, I'm not sure we'd be able to put it together. Nobody's really talked about it, so I don't know.”
So, for now, it’s a big question mark. What’s not in question, though, is Light’s standout performance on FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story as Marilyn Miglin, the widow of Lee Miglin, a victim of spree killer Andrew Cunanan. Light’s work as a woman forced to put on a brave face as she grapples with her husband’s murder, and alleged infidelity, has sparked major awards buzz. ET caught up with the actress at a For Your Consideration event for the show in Los Angeles on Monday night.

“[An award] would mean that all people who were involved, who supported me in doing this, I would be able to thank them all, as I already have,” she gushes. “It would be an acknowledgment of this entire team, from my dear friend, Jon Robin Bates, who wrote me about it in the first place, to our producers, Brad Simpson, Nina Jacobson, and of course the extraordinary Ryan Murphy.”
“And Mike Farrell, who is a remarkable actor who plays my husband in the piece,” Light continues, “and Darren Criss and Ricky Martin and Edgar Ramirez and Penelope Cruz. I mean, you're talking about, and Gwyneth Horder-Payton who directed it, and Tom Rob Smith who wrote it, so it would be a real acknowledgment of a team that put this together that really said, this was a story that needed to be told.”
