Tricky Ricky
Ricky Jay is one of the greatest sleight-of-hand artists of all time. But there's more to him than just sleight of hand. He's written books -- one of which started as an article in The New Yorker. He's appeared in most of David Mamet's and Paul Thomas Anderson's movies, as well as in an episode of The X-Files. He has a radio show on KCRW. As if all this weren't enough, he now has a handsome website: www.rickyjay.com

Here's an entertaining interview with Ricky Jay.
