Reliable Disappointment

By
I recently worked on a film with Paul Giamatti, who had previously played the part of cartoonist Harvey Pekar in the movie "American Splendor." 
I told Paul that I had an idea for a photo for us to do together, which was to recreate one of Pekar's famous cartoon panels. He loved the idea so we posed for the photo, which I sent to Lee Anne Kortus LeeAnneKortus to have the photograph merged into the original cartoon.  

Photo by Duccio Fabbri
Original drawing by Harvey Pekar
Digital Art by Lee Anne Kortus
Starring Paul Giamatti and Joseph Thomas.

I'm glad to hear he's as cool in person as he is on the big screen. :) He seems like the genuine type.
