James Brolin says Barbra Streisand likes a working husband

The Associated Press

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) James Brolin says wife Barbra Streisand is delighted with his role on the new sitcom "Life in Pieces."

"'Oh, boy, great. Go to work!'" was her reaction, a smiling Brolin told a TV critics' meeting Monday. "'Get out of the house, get out of the hammock.'"

"Life in Pieces" tells the story of an extended family through their milestone moments. For family patriarch John, played by Brolin, that includes staging a cheerful mock funeral to mark his 70th birthday.

The half-hour series' ensemble cast also includes Dianne Wiest, Zoe Lister-Jones, Colin Hanks and Betsy Brandt. It debuts Sept. 21.

Brolin, 75, joked that he was reconsidering taking the job.

"Malibu in the summer, in the hammock," he said, referring to the seaside Southern California city where he and Streisand live. "I'm surprised I'm working."
