Happy Birthday, Paul Giamatti! Our Henry Street neighbor was born June 6, 1967, and turns 45 today. The actor’s first prominent role was 1997′s film adaptation of Howard Stern’s “Private Parts,” as Kenny “Pig Vomit” Rushton, Stern’s antagonistic PD at WNBC. Since, he has gained acclaim in “American Splendor,” “Sideways,” “Cinderella Man” and mini-series “John Adams,” the latter for which he won an Emmy and Golden Globe. Giamatti won a second Golden Globe for “Barney’s Version.”
So here’s an idea. On this Open Thread Wednesday for June 6, 2012, instead of spewing personal “pig vomit” attacks at one another, let’s have a constructive conversation on the BHB. What’s on your mind?
