I love Ricky Jay--and have since I first learned about him. He's probably the greatest living sleight of hand practitioner in the world, and his card-tricks are particularly impressive. He' also a pretty good actor. And he could kill you with a thrown playing card (well... maybe... certainly if you were a piece of fruit).
Wanna see some of his tricks? Imagine playing Poker with this guy....
I'm really looking forward to the documentary.
