We know we're a little late on this one, but we're still in shock (and awe) after watching Jason Beghe's star turn in this week's Californication season premiere, in which he revealed series television's first "mangina."

You remember Beghe, a veteran TV (Melrose Place) and film (Monkey Shines, G.I. Jane) actor who became the first of Scientology's pampered celebrities to leave the "religion" and then denounce it publicly.

Since April 2008, when Beghe made his vocal split from the celebrity-obsessed church (which still coddles Tom Cruise, John Travolta and others), Beghe has been making appearances and giving interviews, harshly criticizing Scientology. But from the moment of his defection, we've asked him, how do you think this would affect your career?
