Saints’ Celebrity Fan No. 6: John Goodman
John Goodman tried to walk onto his college’s football team, but he ultimately went down the arts and theater track instead.
The famed actor is known for his roles in TV’s “Roseanne” and also has appeared in a plethora of blockbuster movies like Evan Almighty (2007), The Artist (2011), Argo (2012), and Atomic Blonde (2017).
Goodman hails from St. Louis, Missouri, but when the Cardinals left town he opted to root for the Saints rather than the Rams.
Goodman had this to say about the Saints’ epic Super Bowl run: “It started during the season. There was something going on. Each week, the local television stations built it up. It was just a crazy confidence. They were always a fourth-quarter team. That’s kind of a tradition. You knew they would pull it out some way or another.”
