Friday Night Lights’ Jesse Plemons Cast in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Scientology Movie

Jesse Plemons has been cast as Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Dern's son in Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming Scientology drama, formerly known as The Master. Landry! The now-untitled film follows a World War II veteran (Hoffman) as he founds a new religion. Ah, the simple joy of actors who really do resemble each other being cast as family members. [Variety]
