The actor John Goodman was born in 1952 in St. Louis, Missouri. Long before Goodman rose to fame as Dan Conner, Roseanne’s husband on the hit television series of the same name, he grew up raised by a single mother in a family of three children. His father had passed away suddenly following a heart attack when John was only two years old. Goodman excelled in athletics as a high school student, ultimately earning a football scholarship to Missouri State University. While at the university, John enrolled in the drama program, and found very quickly that he had a talent for the art.
After leaving Missouri, Goodman set his sights on New York, where he began to pursue a career as an actor. Early roles in the 1980’s include: Revenge of the Nerds (1984), Maria’s Lovers (1984), Sweet Dreams (1985), The Big Easy (1987), and Raising Arizona (1987.) In 1988, John Goodman earned the coveteted role as Dan Connor, husband to Roseanne Connor, on the hit television series Roseanne. Goodman remained with the show for 9 years, until the show finished in 1997. The role made Goodman a household name, and launched a career which has since continued to rise and last well into the new millennium.
Since Roseanne, John Goodman has gone on to appear in the television series Treme (2010 to 2011) and Damages (2011.) He has also appeared in dozens of films, including: Always (1989), Barton Fink (1991), The Babe (1992), The Hudsucker Proxy (1994), The Flinstones (1994), The Big Lebowski (1998), O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000), Beyond the Sea (2004), Evan Almighty (2007), and Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009.) In the last few years, Goodman has appeared in the critically acclaimed films: The Artist (2011), Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (2011), and Argo (2012), the latter for which he earned multiple awards, including a Screen Actors Guild Award. Goodman was also nominated for a Satellite Picture award for his role in the film Flight (2012.)
John Goodman continues to appear in multiple films every year. His most recent appearances include the role of Roland Turner in Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) and Walter Garfield in The Monuments Men (2014.)
