Paul Giamatti and Amy Ryan have grown to become two of my favorite people to watch on screen. They're funny, awkward, and don't really need to say much for me to understand what they're feeling. I spoke with the duo last week at SXSW about their recent performances as a struggling married couple in Tom McCarthy's very wonderful third feature, WIN WIN. It would be a lie if I said I wasn't a tad bit nervous; it's a bit difficult to keep composure around two people you deeply admire.

Check out the quick interview after the break; Giamatti and Ryan talk about how they got involved with WIN WIN, and Giamatti talks a little more about his real life persona channeling his fictional character, Mike Flaherty.
