John Goodman is a magnificent pagan god

Always_2 If the Stuck in the 80s story even gets turned into a movie, there's a slew of Spearsy lookalikes to play the part of the loner, tubby 80s geek who can't stop quoting movies and losing women.

The profane "About Last Night" version of Jim Belushi maybe. Or goofball Tom Arnold. Maybe even Jason Bateman if you fed him a couple extra pizzas, forced a few kegs of beer into his gut and beefed him up a little.

But my money's on the beloved John Goodman, one of best bit players in the 80s before making it big on TV. Goodman, who turns 56 years old today, improved a slew of flicks with just the flashing of his welcoming, double-chinned smile.

Happy Birthday, Big Guy. And start thinking of what you'd look like once you adopt my Stuck in the 80s spiked hair style for our flick!

TOP 5 JOHN GOODMAN MOVIES OF THE 80s:

5. SEA OF LOVE
(1989): "Man, that'll be a hell of a story in court. 'Well, Your Honor, first I whipped it out, then she whipped it out, if you know what I mean.' "

4. TRUE STORIES (1986): "I'm 6'3", and maintain a very consistent panda bear shape."

3. RAISING ARIZONA (1987): "What my brother here means to say is that we felt that the institution no longer had anything to offer us."

2. ALWAYS (1989): "You magnificent pagan god!"

1. REVENGE OF THE NERDS
(1984): "You know, when you were a baby in your crib, your father looked down at you, he had but one hope - some day my son will grow to be a man."
