The Many Faces Of Paul Giamatti

This weekend, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrives in the US, after having done a bit of a world tour in other territories. And the most interesting piece of casting in it must surely be Paul Giamatti as the villain known as "The Rhino". He's certainly the biggest reason (maybe even the sole one) for me to go check out this film.

Paul Giamatti is one of those actors who you think to be prolific, and suspect to have done dozens of small character parts, but he actually hasn't. It's just that whenever he appears, he steals the scenes he's in, and is instantly memorable!

So once again I'm going to use a gallery of eight close-ups of one of my favourite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images and guess which eight movies they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun. Try to see how far you get without using IMDB.

I'll post the answers next Thursday (or earlier if someone gets all eight of them right).
