Biography for John Goodman
Tubby, jovial actor who brings an unusual degree of intelligence to his roles, even when playing morons. Formally trained (one of his college acting classmates was Kathleen Turner), Goodman began his movie career ignobly with small roles in the likes of C.H.U.D and Revenge of the Nerds (both 1984). He quickly graduated to better roles in better movies, portraying a hapless guy advertising for a wife in True Stories (1986), one of the lunatic prison escapees in Raising Arizona (1987), and the sad, aging exfootballer in Everybody's All-American (1988). That same year, he hit the big time (on TV, anyway) as the good-natured husband/father in the hit sitcom "Roseanne." By now established as a top character actor, Goodman landed key costarring roles as Sally Field's husband in Punchline (1988), a sanguine New York cop in Sea of Love (1989), a wisecracking flight instructor in Always (also 1989), and a comically macho exterminator in Arachnophobia (1990).
