Master thespian/nabe resident Paul Giamatti turns 41 today. In his career, the actor has played many memorable roles – “Miles” in Sideways, Harvey Pekar in the biopic American Splendor, “Pig Vomit” in Howard Stern’s Private Parts (today is coincidentally the real Pig Vomit’s birthday as well), and most recently starring as John Adams in the eponymous HBO mini-series.
Giamatti is the son of former Major League Baseball commissioner A. Bartlett Giamatti. He graduated from Yale University in 1989 and is reportedly a member of Skull & Bones a secret society made up of the school’s students and alumni.
Happy Birthday, Neighbor!
