Watch: Paul Giamatti still hasn't seen his bleeped Golden Globes speech
'Win Win' star talks about coaching in the movies at Sundance
One of the most intriguing revelations about Paul Giamatti in Tom McCarthy's new dramedy "Win Win" is that the critically acclaimed "Sideways" and "John Adams" star makes a pretty damn good sports coach. One of the film's key elements is that Mike (Giamatti) is the high school wrestling coach for his Alma mater. And while Mike isn't a particularly effective coach when we first meet him, as the movie goes on he gets better and better until his team pulls something of a "Bad News Bears" turnaround. I left the theater thinking Giamatti would make a great baseball manager or college basketball coach on the big screen someday and that was just one of the topics we discussed in our sitdown the day after "Win Win" premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

First off, I had to ask Giamatti about his already infamous Golden Globes acceptance speech which was bleeped by NBC censors. The Golden Globe Best Actor - Comedy or Musical winner for "Barney's Version" admits he hasn't watched himself (not usually a fan of that on the big or small screen), but is still mightily confused why he was actually censored. To find out what he really said, check out our interview embedded in this post.

"Win Win" opens in limited release on March 18.
