The old ptanderson.com site was abandoned and taken over by spammers long ago. I assume your malware blocker is spotting links to that site in the thread and doing its impression of Shaggy and Scooby Doo going into a scary old house.

EDIT: Except there are no link to ptanderson.com in this thread.... Weird.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

It's just Chrome. Happened when I clicked on page one of the thread, then just now when I clicked to reply. Weird.

They've been working on that piece for probably 3 years. (I was interviewed for it in like 2011 maybe? when I was writing for C&RV.) No idea why it took so long to post, I think they kept trying to get PTA to be interviewed and he had no interest. Still a pretty great piece.

Never knew Albert Brooks was offered Jack Hornwr. From Judd Apatow's book:

“One of the reasons I didn’t go into it again was I am enjoying acting and there were so many movies I turned down as an actor because I was making my own movies. Every time I see Boogie Nights—you know, I got offered the part that Burt Reynolds got. And I remember going into a screening room and seeing Paul Thomas Anderson. No one knew him yet, and I watched Hard Eight, and I thought, Oh, this is good—this is someone you would like to take a chance with. But I was just getting the money to make The Muse, and if you’re writing and directing “and starring in a movie, you can’t stop”

Yep, pretty interesting. (But that came out at least a few years ago.)
