Yes, we can hardly believe it, but Paul Thomas Anderson's untitled religious cult flick aka "The Master" is indeed back on track and moving full steam ahead with two more actors coming aboard joining Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix in the film.

Variety reports that "Friday Night Lights" star Jesse Plemons and veteran character actor David Warshofsky have added their names to the cast. The film centers on Lancaster Dodd (Hoffman), who returns from WWII and starts a religion not unlike Scientology, taking Freddie Sutton (Phoenix), a former alcoholic under his wing. Plemons is set to play Dodd's son, while Warshofsky will take on the role of a detective.

For Plemons, the young actor is making big strides into Hollywood. He popped up in "Paul" earlier this year, and has a role in next year's "Battleship" but this will add some prestige to his CV. As for Warshofsky, he's a "Hey, it's that guy" actor, and he also had a small role in "There Will Be Blood." You'll see him next in Miranda July's "The Future."

It also appears that Laura Dern has joined the cast in what we presume is the role of Dodd's wife, though Variety doesn't specify. More news surely to come as "The Master" will start shooting in June.
