The New Yorker has done a short piece on Paul Giamatti (well, not entirely on, more with) about his new movie. Apparently, the film has him playing a character much like himself, except the cinematic Paul Giamatti has his soul removed for storage, and discovers to his chagrin that it’s the size and shape of a chick pea. This prompts the reporter to ask Paul Giamatti what he thought other people’s souls would look like (including Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Jessica Simpson, and the Pope), and hilarity ensues. Paul Giamatti is already one of my most favorite actors (I heart you, American Splendor), but this makes me love him even more. Read it, laugh, and marvel at this bizarro accuracy – is he not spot on?
