Anthony Mackie is the next Paul Giamatti……Confused? Read below.Posted: September 17, 2012
In My Humble Opinion: Anthony Mackie has been in so many movies as of late, that it is my prediction that one day we will look back and think to ourselves…”Oh man, I forgot he was in that,” and if you’re like me,at least a time or two you’ve had that very same thought with regards to Paul Giamatti. I was watching The Truman Show not too long ago and completely forgot that Paul Giamatti had a small supporting role in that movie. Did any of you catch him as a FBI agent in Donnie Brasco or as Jim Carrey’s right hand man in A Man on the Moon? I can go on…supporting roles in The Negotiator, Saving Private Ryan, Private Parts, Planet of the Apes, etc. Paul had a pretty solid career going before he “made it” with hits like Sideways and Cinderella Man. That’s why I think Anthony Mackie is following in Mr. Giamatti’s foot steps. Anthony is about to hit superstardom when he appears as The Falcon in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but like Paul Giamatti, Mr. Mackie has already had a pretty impressive career. I first remember seeing him as Papa Doc in the Eminem film 8 Mile. Since then, he seems to pop everywhere; We Are Marshall, Eagle Eye, Million Dollar Baby, The Hurt Locker, Real Steel, The Adjustment Bureau, etc. He always turns in an impressive supporting role and has kept busy over the years. I guess I will just bide my time and wait for the film that stars not only Paul Giamatti but Anthony Mackie as well….Hey! It could happen.
