Laura Dern, Jesse Plemons and David Warshofsky Added To The Cast Of P.T. Anderson's Next
Paul Thomas Anderson is directing another movie. Sure, we've known about it for a couple weeks now, but I feel like celebrating whenever I hear that bit of news. The project, formally titled The Master, already stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix in the lead roles, but now the cast has received a few additions.
Variety says that Laura Dern, Jesse Plemons and David Warshofsky have joined the film, which is set to begin production on June 13. Anderson's first film since 2008, the unnamed project tells the story of an L. Ron Hubbard stand-in named Lancaster Dodd (Hoffman) who, after coming back from World War II begins his own church. Dern's role is unspecified, but Plemons will play Dodd's son while Warshofsky will be a detective. While both Dern and Plemons will be working with Anderson for the first time, Warshofsky played H.M. Tilford in There Will Be Blood.
I know fans are disappointed that Friday Night Lights has ended, but it looks like the cast is doing just fine. Between Plemons being cast in this film and Kyle Chandler having a major role in Super 8, which comes out next week, they seem to be doing quite well for themselves.
