in telluride | casting "dirty pictures"

I'm sorta hoping that one of the late night parlour games here in Telluride will be trying to cast the recently announced movie version of Peter Biskind's "Down and Dirty Pictures". While people will no doubt focus on who might play Harvey, I feel that the real unsung hero of the book is the aforementioned Bingham Ray. And so I hope my friend Bingham (who thankfully showed me the ropes here in Telluride my first year) won't mind that that I offer up Paul Giamatti to play him. Giamatti is a terrific actor and I can imagine him pulling off Bing just right... [BTW, over at The Reeler, Stu VanAirsdale has some fun casting ideas...]
