Jason Schwartzman played Max Fischer in Rushmore, my favorite movie of all time.
He also made one of my favorite records.
He’s a friend of this blog and always will be, even if I never get to tell him so.
Here’s some fresh news about Jason from the Hollywood Reporter:
And here’s some relevant info:
Jason Schwartzman has been tapped as the lead in HBO’s comedy pilot “Bored to Death,” lifting the contingency on the project.
The Jonathan Ames-penned “Bored” centers on Jonathan (Schwartzman), a struggling thirtysomething writer with a drinking problem in Brooklyn who, following a painful breakup with his girlfriend, decides to emulate his heroes from the novels of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. He takes out an ad pretending to be a private detective and starts taking cases — solving some and making others worse.
I can totally see him doing this.
So, who’s got HBO? And can I come over? I’ll bring a baked spaghetti pie and a 12-pack of Pepsi.
