Nugget of a Factoid

While taking in a little mindless movie madness earlier this evening ("Mission Impossible 3"... and I can't promise I won't go see "Poseidon" next weekend either) it occurred to me that, improbably enough, this wasn't the first pairing of Tom Cruise and Philip Seymour Hoffman on screen together -- if you think back to 1999, remember that they briefly crossed paths in Paul Thomas Anderson's bloated "Magnolia" as guru Frank T.J. Mackey and nurse Phil Parma, respectively.
