Fiona Dourif and Josh Close will star in THE MASTER

Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER follows Philip Seymour Hoffman as the founder of a new religion that greatly mirrors Scientology; Amy Adams and Joaquin Phoenix are also set star. Even though filming has already begun, the film has added two more actors to its already impressive lineup.

Variety reports that Fiona Dourif and Josh Close will star in the film. Dourif’s role isn’t known at the moment, but Close will portray one of Hoffman’s top disciples. Close starred with Selma Blair in THE REPLICAS, a film he also produced and wrote. Dourif starred in the Sundance player LETTERS FROM THE BIG MAN and will have a recurring part on HBO’s True Blood.

THE MASTER is a project that’s definitely worth looking forward to, even more so now with the addition of Close and Dourif to the cast.

How do you feel about Close and Dourif hopping on board for THE MASTER?

About Julian Stark

It was one day in class upon writing about the intro scene to IRON MAN that someone suggested Julian to become a film writer, and why not? Julian has always loved movies: his first trip to the movies was for THE LION KING, his favorite movie growing up was BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and he’s assigned ratings to over a thousand films on Facebook. However, it took a viewing of Sidney Lumet’s 1976 classic NETWORK to make him want to write about the movies regularly… So whenever he’s not shouting at television viewers Howard Beale-style or evading Faye Dunaway-approved gunfire, Julian is watching movies…or writing about them. He likes all kinds of films, but for him, there’s nothing like an old-fashioned character drama or a lushly orchestrated musical. He also approves of satires if they’re done correctly. He’s working on getting his English degree with an emphasis in Journalism; he’s still debating on whether or not to minor in Awesomeness. There’s the occasional shouting at television viewers or evasion of Faye Dunaway-approved gunfire, but you can most often find Julian in the comfort of his nearest cinema.
