I've been meaning to write a post about Jason Schwartzman for quite a while, and now seems just as good a time as any. So here goes, 5 reasons why Jason Schwartzman is an all-round awesome dude.
1. He stars in great films: Think Rushmore and I Heart Huckabees, not to mention one of my favourites, Marie Antoinette
2. He is a part of the extraordinarily talented Coppola family: He is the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, cousin of Sofia Coppola and Nicholas Cage, brother of Rooney singer Robert Schwartzman and grandson of Carmine Coppola. This family blows my mind!
3. He began his entertainment career as a musician: He was the drummer in Phantom Planet who played the OC theme song, California
4. He rolls with the likes of ex-girlfriend Zooey Deschanel, Kirsten Dunst, cousin Sofia Coppola and director Wes Anderson
5. And last but not least his one-man band Coconut Records is amazing. His first album combines folk, pop, rock, country and even a touch of jazz.
The kid has talent.
