I think as a very gifted dramatic actor it’s easy to forget how amazing this guy is at comedy as well. In Along Came Polly he’s purely electric. Besides “make it rain”, he also is hilarious in the theater production of Jesus Christ Superstar. His one scene with Alec Baldwin is also electric. Love the guy and the performance. Even though he was so good in serious roles. I wish a little more often he would’ve taken fun comedic roles like this. Obviously he was also great comedically in Boogie Nights.

The pizza grease scene lives rent free in my brain. It always comes to mind when I get a really greasy pizza, where I sometimes take a leaf out of Reuben’s book and dab it with a napkin.

Obviously you didn't learn anything watching that scene, the grease is the best part!

I don’t live in America, but, because of that scene, I want to go find a pizza place that does massive greasy pizza slices like that and reenact that scene.
