Ex-Scientologist story #213, Actor Jason Beghe: Scientology Is ‘Brainwashing’

“Scientology,” Beghe says, “delivers what it promises under the guise of tearing away falsity, neuroses, psychoses. It creates a brainwashed, robotic version of you. It’s a ‘Matrix’ of you, so you’re communicating with people all the time using Scientology. So we’re seeing you ‘via’ Scientology. And it creates an addiction, so you come back for more.”

He says that he initially was recruited through acting teacher Milton Katselas’ class. Katselas has been cited in many publications,including the New York Times, for exerting pressure on his students to join the sect.

“He gets kickbacks,” Beghe says. Among Katselas’ students have been at least half a dozen celebrity Scientologists, including Giovanni Ribisi (who is thought to have recruited “My Name Is Earl” star Jason Lee and, in turn, Ethan Suplee) and his sister, Marisa, Leah Remini and Anne Archer.

Beghe was brought to the Scientology center in Hollywood by Bodhi Elfman, husband of actress Jenna Elfman, who was in Katselas’ class. His appointment was for 10 a.m. He wound up staying at least 12 hours, as the sect’s auditors embarked on their “brainwashing.” It was just before his career was taking off with a role as Demi Moore’s love interest in “G.I. Jane.”
