  • This maybe the best “breaking down most iconic characters” video I’ve seen. Because he talks about so many significant roles in his filmography and actually talks about the characters themselves and embodying those characters. I wish this video was even longer, but this was very interesting.

  • John Goodman as Babe Ruth was NOT iconic. Babe Ruth was iconic, but Goodman's performance was terrible. And you could tell he was uncomfortable talking about it.

  • It's a bit of a shame that Roseanne stereotyped him for decades as he was/is much better than that crappy show though no doubt he did well financially out of it. He is a great actor and it's great to see him looking slim and healthy.

  • i just LOVE the way he describes and explains how much he admires Peter O Toole. He like, almost broke down or something expressing his joy and respect towards the man. I just love John Goodman, humble and sincere, great actor, yet underrated. Love him as Eli Gemstone.

  • It’s funny how family guy always portrayed him as just a super fat guy with a deep voice, but he’s aged so well and lost so much weight, not to mention I’ve always considered him to be a phenomenal actor. So joke’s on them!
