Ray Romano Talks Avoiding Typecasting, Sitcom Reunion Possibilities, and Getting Back Onstage
Ray Romano is not slowing down. The Emmy Award-winning comedian and actor spoke with me ahead of his set of stand-up dates this weekend in Las Vegas.
This wide-ranging conversation covers Romano’s return to Stand-up after COVID, and what it’s like performing at the Mirage Theater with friend David Spade. It is currently the only place fans can see the beloved actor live on stage.
Romano also gets candid about his role on the HBO Max Original hit dramadey Made For Love. His character Herbert Green is the father to Cristin Millotti’s Hazel Green. Romano plays a man in love with a synthetic doll with a tenderness that adds a quirky heart to the black comedy.
Plus, Romano shares his thoughts on a reboot or revival of his hit sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond. Though he emerged as the rare star to avoid being typecast as a sitcom dad, Romano’s breakout role remains a fan favorite. However, the passing of legendary actors Doris Roberts and Peter Boyle means a revival is off the table.
