Goodman started working in motion pictures while still in high school. Before joining DreamWorks as an assistant, Goodman worked as a production assistant on films produced by one of Hollywood's most successful producers, John Hughes.
Goodman served as President of Paramount Motion Picture Group from 2009 to 2015. While at Paramount, he shepherded a number of key projects for the company. Some of the films that he helped bring to the screen include the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot, “Mission:Impossible – Ghost Protocol” and the “Paranormal Activity” franchise. During his tenure, Paramount also rebooted "Star Trek" with J.J. Abrams and launched a series of films based on "G.I. Joe." The company weathered a third-act reshoot on "World War Z" to turn it into a $540 million global hit.
In early 2016, Goodman exited Paramount at a time when the studio was struggling with a thin film slate. He was replaced by Marc Evans as President.
Shortly after departing from Paramount, Goodman formed his own film production company, Dichotomy. The company has a First look deal with his former employer, Paramount Pictures. Dichotomy plans to focus on a low-budget model to finance a myriad of genres over time, in increments.
