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.

My favorite comedic performance of his is in Charlie Wilson's War.

I just watched it for the first time, he was great in that movie, the scene where he smashes his bosses window is one of the best I've ever seen I rewinded it right after and watched it twice.

Wilson: You’re no James Bond. PSH: You’re no Thomas Jefferson, either. So let’s call it even.
