John Goodman just appeared on The Today Show in an interview with Savannah Guthrie to talk about his role in 10 Cloverfield Lane, where he plays the lead character of Howard.

Goodman's shed quite a few pounds for the part, and when Guthrie asked if he'd be keeping the weight off in the long run, the comedian responded:

"Just wait another six months and I'll be back to normal. That's the way it usually goes."

The star wasn't exactly sure how much weight he'd lost, but Guthrie suspected it might be around 100lbs.

Here he is before and after his dramatic weight loss. The photo on the left is from the 2014 premiere of Monuments Men, and the one on the right is the Trumbo premiere at the end of 2015.

Goodman's new film, '10 Cloverfield Lane,' will premiere at 12am on March 11.
