Marisa Tomei wants to star in sitcom

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Marisa Tomei says she wants to go back to the small screen and do a sitcom.

The 54-year-old actor, where she got her start in 1987's "A Different World", said she had the realisation after starring in a recreation of an "All in the Family" episode.

She played Edith Bunker in ABC's recent "Live In Front of a Studio Audience" event.

"I've wanted to do a show for a while because I want to be in one place for a bit of time. Part of it is just a different phase of life. After this 'All in the Family' live thing, I'm snake bit.

"I was telling my agents, I really want to do a sitcom! And they were like, no you don't want to do sitcoms, nobody wants to do sitcoms. But I really want to do a sitcom!" Tomei said during Variety's "My Favorite Episode" podcast.

She will next be seen reprising her role of Aunt May in "Spider-Man: Far From Home".
