Jason Schwartzman is in a TV Show?
While watching True Blood this evening, I saw a preview for a new show on HBO called Bored to Death that I'm really excited about. It's a new comedy series coming to the network in September 2009, and it stars Jason Schwartzman. It appears to be about a young writer, who reads a lot of detective novels; therefore he feels like he's perfectly capable to solve real life crimes. I mean, why not? I'd definitely hire him.
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I love all of Jason Schwartzman's projects. How can you not fall for his quirky self? He's simply alluring. I love, love, love his schoolboy-esque mop-top haircut. Not to mention, he has talent in his blood (his uncle is Francis Ford Coppola). The new series also stars Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis, with such notable guest stars as Parker Posey and Kristen Wiig (of SNL fame).
For a taste of Jason's charisma, catch him in this summer's comedy flick, Funny People. Jason also stars in my personal favorite, Shopgirl, among many other films.
Be sure to set your TIVO's for Bored to Death this September!
