JOHN GOODMAN (Walter Sobcek) has played Dan Conner for eight seasons on the TV comedy series Roseanne, a role that has earned him seven Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe. One of Hollywood's most respected actors, Goodman is reunited on THE BIG LEBOWSKI with the Coen brothers for the third time, having previously appeared in Raising Arizona and Barton Fink --the latter earning him a Golden Globe nomination in 1992.

Goodman grew up in St. Louis and attended Afton High where he played football. He continued to dedicate himself to the sport in college, first at Meramac Community College and then Southwest Missouri State University. Because of a knee injury, he was forced to sit out a year and spent the time studying drama with fellow students Kathleen Turner and Tess Harper. John graduated in 1975 with a B.F.A. in theater.

Moving to New York, Goodman performed off-Broadway as well as in dinner and various children's theater productions. His regional theater credits include Henry IV, Parts I and II, Anthony and Cleopatra, and As You Like It. After appearing in the road company of The Robber Bridegroom, he starred in two Broadway shows, Loose Ends and Big River.

Goodman made his screen debut in HBO's Mystery of the Moro Castle, and his other credits include The Big Easy, True Stories, Sweet Dreams, Maria's Lovers, Revenge of the Nerds, C.H.U.D., Eddie Macon's Run, Stella, Everybody's All-American, Sea of Love, Punchline, King Ralph, The Babe, Born Yesterday, Pie in the Sky, Mother Night, Matinee, Arachnophobia, Always and The Flintstones. In 1998, Goodman will star in Fallen, The Borrowers and Blues Brothers 2000.

Goodman's recent television credits include producing and starring in TNT's Kingfish: A Story of Huey P. Long. He also starred as Mitch in the CBS production of A Streetcar Named Desire. Goodman received an Emmy nomination for both roles.
