Goodman as Walter Sobchak in The Big Lebowski.

John Goodman is an American actor from St. Louis, Missouri, and has long resided in New Orleans, Louisiana. He was born on June 20, 1952, in the St. Louis suburb of Affton. Perhaps best known for his role in the television series Roseanne, Goodman has also appeared in many motion pictures, including six Coen Brothers films thus far. He is tied with Steve Buscemi for most collaborations with the Coens. He has stated he very much enjoys working with them, to the point he feels a "twinge of envy" whenever they cast a movie without him, and his favorite personal role of all time is that of Charlie Meadows in Barton Fink. He does not generally like watching himself on screen.
