In 1997, Paul Thomas Anderson made Mark Wahlberg a huge, huge star with the film 'Boogie Nights.' The film followed a dishwasher who uses his very, uh, sizable talents to enter the world of the adult film industry. While his star quickly rises, his life -- and the lives of his colleagues and friends -- begins to unravel. We take a look back at the cast of this film 16 years later (if you can believe it) to see what they're up to now.
Paul Thomas Anderson
Paul Thomas Anderson is one of the most respected directors working today, which is why he can get some of the best actors in the business to join his projects. His next film 'Inherent Vice' is starting to build its cast, and besides Joaquin Phoenix and Benicio Del Toro, it looks like Owen Wilson may also join the film.
It seems fairly obvious to anyone with a functioning brain that Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming film 'The Master' is, in part, based on Scientology and its creator, L. Ron Hubbard. Unfortunately for Anderson, Scientologists are unhappy with this portrayal and they're railing against the film.
