Whoopi Goldberg has landed a new acting gig. She has signed on to play an ex-cop in ABC comedy pilot "Delores & Jermaine." The comedienne/actress will play Delores, a former police officer and football fan who ends up taking in her unmotivated and dreamer grandson Jermaine (played by Jermaine Fowler).
It was rumored that Goldberg wouldn't be able to star in the sitcom because her "The View" co-host Rosie O'Donnell announced last week she was leaving the daytime talk show.
