John Goodman is joining the cast of post-9/11 drama Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

The Roseanne star will play a doorman in Stephen Daldry's film about ten-year-old Oskar, who loses his father in the September 11 attacks and embarks on a cathartic journey to cope with his loss.

John's character works in Oskar's apartment building and goes on a trip to exhume the father's coffin, The Hollywood Reporter reveals.

Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks are also starring in the film, an adaptation of the Jonathan Safran Foer novel.

The tale sees Oskar scouring New York for information about the lock-box key his father leaves behind, and meeting a variety of people on his journey.

The film has been adapted for the screen by Eric Roth and is expected to begin filming in the winter.

Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
