Goodbye, Ricky Jay

 

The great magician, sleight-of-hand artist, and flim-flam expert Ricky Jay has died. I first fell under his spell when he played the stranger with the “tell” in House of Games.

There’s a very good Fresh Air interview with Ricky Jay from several years ago. He and Terry Gross talk about con artists, David Mamet, and other fascinating things.

And here is a preview of the excellent PBS special on Ricky Jay.

A true master of his craft.
