PORTRAIT

Talented and imcomparable character actor who worked his way through the ranks in the business starring in smaller, independent films and doing bit parts in larger scale films. Giamatti excelled in character roles in successful comedies such as Private Parts and Man on the Moon before finally getting his major breakthrough with a starring role in the offbeat hit American Splendor. Giamatti followed up the next year with a remarkable performance in Alexander Payne's Sideways, and after several years as a supporting actor in big productions gave a superb, award-winning performance as Barney Panofsky in Barney's Version in 2010.

 

TRIVIA

  • I first noticed Giamatti through his delightfully energetic comic performance in Private Parts.

Private Parts (1997)

Kenny (Giamatti): "I'll tell you all, Howard Stern, man. That motherfucking goddamn degenerate fucking cunt. I say that in no shame either. The man's a fucking foul-mouth immature. Man's immature, you know. He's like a fucking child. I'll tell you this much: There ain't no good while Howard Stern is walking the earth, I'll tell you that. Fuck it, I gotta go. Fucking Howard Stern. How about that Howard Stern, huh? HOWARD STERN CAN KISS MY ASS IN HELL!"

 

The Illusionist (2006)

Eisenheim (Edward Norton): "Are you completely corrupt?"
