John Goodman to Appear on CBS SUNDAY MORNING's 'Eat, Drink, and be Merry' Special, 11/18

Actor John Goodman loves his adopted hometown of New Orleans because there's something special about the city, he says in an interview on "Eat, Drink and Be Merry," the food-themed edition of CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH Charles Osgood to be broadcast Nov. 18, 2012 (9:00 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network.

"There was just something about the place," Goodman tells Michelle Miller. "The air carries music. The air carries the aroma of food. You smell the river. You can smell the sea. I don't know, it's ooh la la."

Goodman takes Miller to the famed Commander's Palace in New Orleans, one of his favorite spots, which just happens to be three blocks from his house. There he talks about some of his latest roles, his family and giving up alcohol five years ago.

"If I don't pick up that first drink, I'm fine," he says. "Let the demons chase me, and they can knock all they want. I'm not home."

Goodman says he's learning what the important things are in life, "which are petting my dogs, saying hi to my wife, looking at this beautiful city. Little things that I just missed or I just slept through for 30 years."

He's married to Anna Beth Hartzog and they have a 22-year-old daughter, Molly, an aspiring filmmaker. Asked if he's been a good father, Goodman says the jury is still out. "I could have been a lot better, let's put it that way," he says. "But the way things look now, I don't think I did too much damage."

Miller's full interview with Goodman will be broadcast Nov. 18 on CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH Charles Osgood (9:00 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.
