[Reviving The Dude from 'The Big Lebowski']
He's a good actor, he's a good man, John Goodman.
He's one of us, he loves the outdoors and acting. As a showman, he has explored the stages from Los Angeles to New York -- we're talking Broadway here, man -- he's done some weird little movies, too. And he's lived, like so many men in prior generations have lived their lives. He is a man of his times, a man of our times, and he has become a legend.
In your wisdom lord, you have lived through John as you have through so many other bright, flowering, young actors before him. I'm talking about men like Clark Gable, Gabby Hayes, Roy Rogers -- to keep in the whole Western thing -- Groucho Marx, Jimmy Cagney. We could go on and on, but you get the idea.
These men had lived for what they loved, and so to had you, Walter. You have lived for acting that you have loved so well.
And so Walter Sobcheck, John Goodman ....
In accordance with what we think may be your final wishes, we have committed to these sidewalks in Hollywood -- in the bosom of Hollywood that you love so well -- a star. A star for you, a star because we love you so well ... what time is it? Afternoon? Good afternoon, my sweet prince.
