Believe it or not, the love story of Howell’s resident celebrity couple, Melissa Gilbert (“Little House on the Prairie”) and Timothy Busfield (“Revenge of the Nerds,” “Thirtysomething,” “Sleepy Hollow”) – who will be part of Howell’s Fantasy of Lights Parade on Friday evening – begins with what sounds like the start of a joke: A guy walks into a bar …
“I was just going out to get a slice of pizza and a beer and watch sports on TV, and I knew just the spot that would be empty,” explained Busfield, who, like Gilbert, had been married twice before. So I walked in the front door, and there was one person, sitting in my chair, at the bar. It was like when Indiana Jones sees snakes in ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and says, ‘Why does it have to be snakes?
As we previously reported, two women have come forward to accuse the acclaimed director of misconduct in response to the powerhouse's controversial Harvey Weinstein stance.

Anyone auditioning was told the scenes would be rehearsed and performed from a script, with my casting director, Risa Bramon Garcia, present throughout the process to ensure a safe environment for all actors who auditioned." Garcia also weighed in on the accusations as she recalled that the auditions were "challenging," but defended that it was necessary "given the nature of the material and the subject of the film."

Busfield – who grew up in East Lansing – had lived on his own in a one-bedroom house in Holly, Michigan before marrying Gilbert, but the couple chose to relocate to Howell in part because of the town’s close proximity to airports and train stations, and because the town’s local opera house (built in 1881, and now undergoing extensive restoration) could potentially house the professional theater company Gilbert and Busfield aim to launch.
According to the Howell Opera House website, the Livingston Arts Council purchased the building’s first floor – previously a hardware store – in 2000, drew up a plan, ran a successful fundraising campaign, and completed the first floor renovation in 2006.
