He’s a good actor, he’s a good man, John GoodmanJeff Bridges began by saying, pastiche of the image that Goodman’s character, Vietnam War veteran Walter Sobchak, gives at the end of the cult film in memory of their friend Donny (Steve Buscemi). He is one of us, he likes to be outside and act. As a showman, he’s been on stages from Los Angeles to New York – we’re talking Broadway here – he’s also done some odd little movies. And he lived his life, as many other men of past generations have lived. He is a man of his time, a man of our time and has become a legend. In your great wisdom, Lord, you lived through John as you have lived with so many new young actors before him. I’m talking about men like Clark Gable, Gabby Hayes, Roy Rogers – to stay on the West Side – Groucho Marx, Jimmy Cagney. We could go on and on, but you get the gist. In accordance with what we believe would have been your final wishes, we gave these Hollywood sidewalks a star. A star for you, a star because we love you so much. What time is it ? Is it afternoon? Good morning my sweet prince.
