Personally, I love him as Charles Busch's constipated husband in Die Mommy Die!

Also great as Jimmy Gator in Magnolia.

His acting style is naturalistic but he'd be very dull if he played the lead.

Hugely talented, he worked in 2 (I think) Paul Thomas Anderson movies (Hard Eight and Magnolia) and he was absolutely mesmerizing.

He was the lead in Hard Eight and I could not take my eyes off him. Very charismatic character actor!

Hard Eight is one of those hidden gems movies from PTA - great great movie, if you like character driven stories. Goopy, John C. Reilly, Samuel L. Jackson were in it too and they were all AMAZING!
