Everything's coming up John Goodman. His stint as a professor who loves the crap out of New Orleans on"Treme," has served as a springboard to make us all go, "Oh yeah. John Goodman."

Now, he's racked up roles in Red State, The Artist, Thicker, and as of today, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. He'll join Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks, and whiz kid Thomas Horn in the story about a boy who pieces together a mystery about his father after losing him on 9/11. Goodman will play the doorman to the boy's building who plays a crucial role in the boy's story. Apparently the kid can't open heavy doors. (THR)
