Remembering magician, actor and author Ricky Jay

Ricky Jay died on Saturday in his home in LA. New Yorker writer Mark Singer once called him “the most gifted sleight-of-hand artist alive.” In addition to being a magician, Jay acted in David Mamet’s “House of Games” and the James Bond movie “Tomorrow Never Dies.” He appeared many times on KCRW’s The Treatment and Unfictional.
