containing multitudes since 2004
When I lived in Charlottesville about fifteen years ago, he would come to visit his companion Deborah Eisenberg (like himself a very talented writer), who was on the University of Virginia faculty. Someone told me it was a little bizarre to be walking down a rather dull street and suddenly recognize the Sicilian from The Princess Bride walking towards you.
If he's Sicilian, I'm Sonny Corleone.
In an interview with the Onion AV Club, Mr. Shawn describes the surreal yet quotidian experience whereby a stranger on the street approaches him to say,"Inconceivable!" Next most popular after that are the Star Trek TNG references. I would say "OMG! It's the guy from "My Dinner with Andre" (Seminal Image, anyone?...ought to be easy to pick the defining shot of that film).
Probably my favorite actor.
