    Perhaps it's not fair to judge this based on overall career. Goodman is still acting and Candy died in the 90s. Not fair.


    As for their personal character, I've heard nothing but good things about both.

    Kevin Smith once told a story about how he discovered he couldn't afford to pay Goodman for an indie movie he was doing (after Goodman already signed on) and was worried Goodman was gonna walk, but when he finally built up the courage to tell him he couldn't pay him, Goodman didn't care and did the part anyway. Wasn't even mad. Same jolly guy just happy to help.


    I've heard stories about Candy too about how he was the most loveable guy on set and would always brighten the mood and bring a smile to your face.

    Goodman is great, but nobody cooks a better pancake than this man:

    It's a tie, Imo Goodman should play Candy in a movie about his life.

    I'd watch that.

    Aside from the age discrepancy, that is a wonderful idea!

    Candy was in so many classic comedies. Stripes, planestranes and automobiles, canadian bacon, uncle buck, wagons east. He was in movies with felow legends like bulushi akroyd, ramis, murry, chase, martin and short. And he was always funny.

    He takes it for me because I grew up watching his movies.


    And I just dont like roseanne
