Mandy Patinkin just became one of my favorite people. He was at the Sundance Film Festival for his new film Wish I Was Here, and when an unusual situation arose, he handled it with the utmost class. Will Rubio was working as a driver during the festival and set up a camera on his dashboard. Patinkin was in his car and after about 30 minutes of chatting, Rubio asked if he could interview him. Patinkin graciously agreed and remarked it was a first for him.
Rubio inevitably asked about The Princess Bride. Patinkin said heartwarming things about the film and that he pinches himself every day over being a part of it. He got even more awesome when Rubio mentioned he took on the part of Inigo Montoya in a play. Patinkin said, “Well, let’s do the line together.” Yeah, THAT line. He rules.
