Paul is an actor who feels bogged down by his participation in a production of Chekov's play, Vanya.
Paul Giamatti plays a fictional version of himself here and was also in The Congress (2013), where Robin Wright plays a fictional version of herself; the plot-lines of both movies involve acting.
Giamatti - Paul:
Mini Storage, Pet Storage, Private Storage, Self Storage... Soul Storage.
Dmitri tells the actress not to worry that Paul's soul looks like and is the size of a chickpea, telling her that Al Pacino won three Oscars. Al Pacino has actually only won one Oscar (Best Actor in 1992, Scent of a Woman).
