ASTRO ADVICE MONTHLY
StarScoop: Gemini-born Paul Giamatti captured my attention when season one of “Billions” was released. Although Paul has been around a long time, it’s his performance in this series that really made me want to take a look at his chart to see the characteristics of the man playing the role of Chuck Rhoades, a U.S. attorney fighting financial corruption. I have to admit I wasn’t surprised or disappointed by what I found.
Giamatti’s chart is creative, and although he boasts to be just another guy, describing other actors he’s worked with as being intense, I’d have to say Paul has a dimension of greatness both on and off the screen. He’s a passionate and strong-willed man who can quickly jump from one anecdote to another, keeping whoever he is with entertained on or off camera.
He also has a certain shyness that I believe he hides well, but in truth, like most actors, he craves the attention that goes along with stardom. He is sorrowfully underrated, and that partially has to do with his generosity as an actor, but behind that facade is a man who wants everyone to know who he is.
If you haven’t caught “Billions,” it airs on Showtime and is definitely a must-see for its brilliant writing, phenomenal casting and fast-paced multidimensional storylines. If you haven’t been fortunate enough to watch Paul Giamatti’s work in the past, this series will prompt you to check out his past projects.
