Creator: Paul Thomas Anderson
P.T Anderson will not take your shit. His eyes and mild smirk say so.
Paul Thomas Anderson (more commonly known as P.T. Anderson), is an American filmmaker who has written and directed seven films, including Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch Drunk Love and There Will Be Blood.

Anderson has been said to belong to the "VCR Generation" of filmmakers, grouped with directors such as Quentin Tarantino, Richard Linklater and Kevin Smith, and described as filmmakers whose careers were founded not upon film school training, but from an enthusiastic love of movies.

If Robert Altman and Martin Scorsese had made sweet, passionate love and Stanley Kubrick was the godfather, P.T. Anderson would have been the fruit of their priapic loins.

Awful mental pictures aside, his real father was comedian and voiceover artist Ernie Anderson, aka Ghoulardi. His life partner is Maya Rudolph, and they have four children together.

Also known for working with composers named after some variation of "John".

Not to be confused with Paul W.S. Anderson, although both have gone by merely Paul Anderson before, or with science fiction author Poul Anderson.
