Actor John Goodman might want to consider a second career as a diplomat.
“I would rather say nothing than to cause more trouble,” he told an interviewer outside a New Orleans auto repair shop.
“I wasn’t gonna get an Emmy anyway,” Goodman said. “I’ve been up there 12 times already, and if I didn’t get one, I’m not gonna get one.”
The Emmy Awards site lists 11 individual nominations for Goodman with one Emmy victory for a guest role on “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.” Goodman was nominated seven times for playing Dan Conner on the original “Roseanne” but never won.
As for chatter about a “Roseanne” spinoff that could feature him, Goodman replied: “Then you’ve heard more than I have.”
ABC dropped its successful reboot after its star, Roseanne Barr, tweeted a racist comment about a former aide for President Barack Obama.
