Geoffrey Rush and Ricky Jay both appeared in the movie "Mystery Men". Ricky Jay was Captain Amazing's agent and during the film he quips something like "What do you think I am a magician." Classic.

Re: Book that this trick is in

Mark Mason also has what seems to be a very similar trick called "Stuck Up Monte". It is on his "Real World Magic" DVD set and also in his recent lecture notes.
