John Goodman's Road Trip

Subscribe to John Goodman alerts

Former ROSEANNE star John Goodman hit the open road in America this summer (04) so he could pick up his TV career in Hollywood with a trip from New Orleans, Louisiana.

The chubby star landed the lead role in new sitcom CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE and decided to take a vacation to drive to the set with a pal.

He says, "I had to take the automobile from New Orleans to California and I took a road trip. I took my friend JOHNNY MILLER, who's a 20-year vet of New Orleans police force, a homicide detective.

"From some shootings, he's a little duff, and I don't hear so well from bar life, so we had some great conversations: 'Look at them cows.' 'What?'"

Goodman made the trip a high-energy affair by guzzling high-caffeine drink, Red Bull as he drove.

He adds, "I like to drink the Red Bull and I don't notice the change that comes over me when I'm in the car drinking it, but when I get out of the car, they usually ask me, 'Is something wrong, mister?'"

Goodman and his pal passed the time listening to an audiobook of JRR TOLKIEN's The Hobbit.
