He is still best known for playing Dan Conner in American sitcom Roseanne from 1988 until 1997.
Yet John Goodman, 69, looked worlds away from the star fans met all those years ago as he continued to show off his dramatic 200lbs weight loss at TUBI’s The Freak Brothers experience at Fred Segal in LA, on Monday.
The Flintstones actor – who is the voice of Fat Freddy Freekowski in The Freak Brothers – previously tipped the scaled at over 400lbs yet proudly flaunted the fruits of his labour at the event where he was joined by fellow stars.
Wow! John Goodman, 69, continued to show off his dramatic 200lbs weight loss in an orange jumper and jeans at TUBI’s The Freak Brothers experience at Fred Segal in LA, on Monday
John wore a light blue open-collar shirt beneath his V-neck orange sweater as he posed on the red carpet at the event.
The actor smartened up his light wash jeans and grey trainers with a mottled oversized blazer.
John stars alongside Pete Davidson, Woody Harrelson and Tiffany Haddish in the animated series.
The show is centered around three Freak Brothers and their sardonic cat as they adjust to life in 2020 after smoking a magical strain of marijuana and falling asleep for 50 years.

In 2017, John told ABC of his weight loss: ‘In the old days, I would take three months out, lose 60 or 70 pounds, and then reward myself with a six-pack or whatever and just go back to my old habits.
‘This time I wanted to do it slowly. Move, exercise. I’m getting to the age where I can’t afford to sit still anymore.’
As part of his lifestyle overhaul, the actor ditched alcohol and in 2018 told AARP: ‘It was basically just portion control and “I don’t need it.” I was just shoving everything into my mouth.’
John also hired a personal trainer, Mackie Shilstone and revealed his motivation for losing weight.

He told People in 2010: ‘It takes a lot of creative energy to sit on your ass and figure out what you’re going to eat next … I wanted to live life better.’
In 2016, the star told Howard Stern: ‘I took it slow. I just wanted to change my lifestyle’ and admitted of his new way of living: ‘It’s an ongoing process for the rest of my life.
‘You look in the mirror everyday and go, “I gotta deal with this the rest of the day, I gotta deal with this schmuck?”.’
Aside from hitting headlines for his weight loss, John was hurtled into a media storm when his co-star Roseanne Barr was removed from her own TV series following a racist tweet – yet that didn’t stop John from missing his former co-star.

In 2019, he admitted that he ‘really missed’ Roseanne after she was given the boot while also giving her props for allowing The Conners to continue without her.
The Monsters, Inc. star praised Roseanne selling off the rights to her intellectual property. He said: ”She gave up a lot so that we could do that show…
‘She gave up all the rights to it so we didn’t have to call ourselves the ‘Monners,’ or the ‘Chonners,’ or invent new characters. She’ll always be missed.’

Roseanne had creative and financial rights and control over the original series, which she signed off to producer Tom Werner in order to allow the rest of the cast to continue as The Conners.
John famously died at the end of Roseanne’s original run, but was miraculously resurrected for the 2018 reboot.
He said: ‘That’s pretty permanent. I mean, when I died on the show they just brought me back. They’re not going to remember, nobody was watching toward the end!’

Roseanne’s removal from the series bearing her name came amidst a political reversal for the comedian and actress.
Over time her politics shifted from the left to the right. Roseanne ran for the Green Party presidential nomination in 2012, but by the 2016 election she had shifted to supporting Donald Trump.
She was fired after a racist tweet about the former advisor to President Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett. Roseanne also engaged in conspiracy theories about the teenage survivors of the Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting in Parkland, Florida.
