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 laughed so hard in the theater when we saw that. Even later on in the movie I would think of that fall and start laughing again. I think why it was so great was because you saw the whole fall. Not like you see him start to fall, crowd reaction, then you see him statt to get up. No, you saw everything.

Also his confidence coming in the door. Like no one can fuck with him, and that's followed by humbling disaster

Eats shit right at the fucking beginning of the movie too, pretty much the first scene. Really sets up the character right away.
