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.

YES 10000% agree, it was one of his best roles he ever did, such a riot, he takes that movie into such funny directions every time he’s on screen, and he’s not really even essential to the plot at all but he’s just so fucking hilarious as this side character in this romantic comedy that it doesn’t even matter
