EMR Featured Character

Today's featured "Eddie Macon's Run" character is John Goodman.  He played Hebert the construction site foreman.  The scene he appears in, where he and Eddie Macon tangle, lasts all of about thirty seconds.  But that's all he needed. 

Apart from the incomparable Kirk Douglas, Goodman has had a very active and successful acting career.  You can see him every week on reruns of "Roseanne."  He plays a major part in one of my all-time favorite movies, "The Big Lebowski."  And of this last Oscar season's list of notable flicks, John Goodman appears in "Argo" and "Flight."  Not bad for a man who had a fleeting role in EMR.  Hats off to you, sir.
