Philip Seymour Hoffman, who is no stranger to sporting a steesh, will wear one in Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film, The Master. PTA, who is not too shabby at this whole movie-making thing, is already responsible for many steeshes, like this and this!
Almost Famous is so good, and Billy Crudup was great as Russell Hammond. According to his IMDB page Billy “does not want to be a star, he claims. He’s one of those constantly hard-working actors who’ll shoot the movie, and do as little publicity as he can.”
He’s done a pretty good job. I’ve seen 6 of his movies and wouldn’t be able to recognize him if I saw him on the street. Of course, one of those movies was Big Fish and I didn’t even remember that Danny Devito looked like this.
