I honestly couldn’t tell you why I was so fascinated by Goodman as a child. I used to watch Roseanne religiously (even though it had episodes that I probably shouldn’t have been watching back then), and King Ralph was one of my all-time favorite movies, but I really don’t know why I loved him so much as a kid. I can understand why I love him now, though.
He’s an amazing actor who is capable of both dark, dramatic work, and also comedy, sometimes even in the same scene. Yes, I could talk about movies like The Big Lebowski and 10 Cloverfield Lane, but those are movies that I feel a lot of people already discuss. So, here are six John Goodman movies that I don’t think nearly enough people talk about.
