Although Durst has stayed busy with his band, which reached its commercial zenith in the late 1990s and early 2000s, he has since expanded into filmmaking.
In 2007, he made his directorial debut with the drama The Education Of Charlie Banks, which starred Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Ritter.
He followed it up with the 2008 sports comedy The Longshots, starring Ice Cube and Keke Palmer, and in 2019 he returned to the screen with The Fanatic.
The psychological thriller starred John Travolta as a trouble autistic man who becomes obsessed with his favorite actor (played by Devon Sawa).
New role: Durst has branched out into filmmaking in recent years. He directed Jesse Eisenberg in The Education Of Charlie Banks (2007) and John Travolta in The Fanatic (2019); seen in 2001
