Flashback: See Justin Theroux in 1997's Below Utopia (with Ice-T and Alyssa Milano!)

Watch a 26-year-old Justin Theroux fight off Ice-T and make out with Alyssa Milano in his third-ever movie.
Details cover guy Justin Theroux is leaving plenty of people sighing jogging commando in HBO's The Leftovers these days. But back in 1997, he starred in a twist-filled thriller about a home invasion (by Ice-T!) of his treasure-filled family estate during a Thanksgiving reunion. (It was only his third movie.)

Variety panned Below Utopia as an unimaginative "video-bin special," but praised Theroux, then 26, for having "fun as the increasingly unhinged son," and praised Alyssa Milano's "innovative use of skimpy outfits." The highlights: Theroux makes out with a generation's childhood crush at wildly inappropriate times not once but twice. Plus: gratuitous tarantula!
