Mario Batali Wire

heat-100.jpgBill Buford, author of the book Heat that was recently optioned to be a movie, explained the near impossibility of casting an actor to play Mario Batali: "I have long thought that there is no actor alive who could play Mario... He's more Hollywood than Hollywood. He is bigger, more flamboyant, more theatrical, more outright fun than anyone else out there, EXCEPT Philip Seymour Hoffman." [Grub Street]
