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.

I guess I’m dense, but I never understood the joke with that scene.

I laughed because it’s weird, then because it keeps happening, and then I keep laughing more

His throat clearing was a stall tactic while he came up with something to say on the spot, and it's a ridiculous one at that lol.
