The Oscar victor, 51, flubbed one of his lines during the 90-minute recreation of two of Normal Lear's biggest shows - breaking out of character and telling the audience, "It's live!"
"Ever since I was a little boy, I would always beg my mother for a little brother. There is so much more work we must do in this country we love so much", he said. Eventually, his cast picked up the ball and plowed ahead without skipping a beat.
Gibbs, 87, was not listed on the cast roster for Live in Front of a Studio Audience, the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted tribute to Norman Lear's All in the Family and its spinoff The Jeffersons. This legendary night of television will be hosted by Lear and Kimmel, and directed by 10-time Emmy victor James Burrows.

Producers had previously announced in press releases that the part was to be played by Justina Machado, of One Day at a Time stardom.
Other highlights included Jennifer Hudson performing a new version of the "Jeffersons" theme song "Movin' On Up" and Lear added commentary with Kimmel in a Statler-and-Waldorf-like format.
All in the Family originally ran on CBS from 1971 through 1979, starring Carol O'Connor and Jean Stapleton as Archie and Edith Bunker, and tackling then-controversial subjects such as women's rights, racism and homosexuality.
Following the broadcast, ABC also will replay the Nightline doc on creator Norman Lear that followed the live remounting of an episode from series.
Live in Front of a Studio Audience recreated two of the Lear's classic sitcoms with a star-packed cast (including Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson and Marisa Tomei) in a one-night-only live performance.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
