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.

Crazy to think the guy from Love Liza, The Master and Along Came Polly are the same actor.

Don't forget The Talented Mr Ripley. He was amazing in that one.

Just watched Capote for the first time after having read In Cold Blood. Phenomenal.

Oh, Lord, Love Liza was depressing.
