Biography

Goodman and his wife, Anna Beth, live in New Orleans. Their daughter, Molly Evangeline Goodman is 25 and works as a production assistant in the film industry.

In a 2009 interview, Goodman was open about his alcoholism, saying, "I don't know how much the old Jackie Daniel's franchise ruined my memory, which is going anyway, because of my advancing decrepitude. I had a 30-year run, and at the end I didn't care about anything. I was just fed up with myself. I didn't even want to be an actor anymore." In October 2012, he said, "If I'd picture in my mind a drink—usually straight out of the bottle—I couldn't not do it." While acting in plays, "I'd have the shakes so bad I'd have to have a drink to get through the show. I'm lucky I never got fired." Eventually, he "bottomed out." Goodman has been sober since 2007, and tries to attend an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting every morning. By August 2010, Goodman had lost 100 pounds. He has stated that exercising and keeping a journal of food he consumed are what helped him keep the weight off. Goodman has lost even more weight since that time. Goodman's new slimmer figure attracted much attention when he appeared at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2015 and the BFI London Film Festival in October of 2015.

In 2009, Goodman retired from theatre after performing the role of Pozzo in Samuel Beckett's play Waiting for Godot at the Roundabout Theatre Company.
