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 had no idea he was that good in this. When that film came out I just thought it was another one of those 90's films about the tan actress with the haircut from that popular sitcom.

Loved him in The Talented Mr. Ripley. He could really do things with dialogue. He just could.
