Jason Schwartzman on the set of Mozart In The Jungle with Anne-Katrin Titze Photo: Ed Bahlman
Jason Schwartzman, King Louis XVl to Kirsten Dunst's Marie Antoinette in Sofia Coppola's royal portrait and frequent Wes Anderson star (The Darjeeling Limited, Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel) has turned his ear to Mozart.
Roman Coppola, Alex Timbers and Jason are the creators of Mozart In The Jungle. Lola Kirke, who will soon be seen in Noah Baumbach's wittily wonderful screwball coming-of-age trip, Mistress America, opposite Greta Gerwig, stars with Gael García Bernal (great in Pablo Larrain's No), Saffron Burrows and Hannah Dunne (of Baumbach's Frances Ha).
I ran into Jason this afternoon after lunch at Narcissa in the East Village as he was filming the latest installment of his Amazon series which also stars Malcolm McDowell and Bernadette Peters. He knows Narcissa for breakfast and is as enthusiastic about their food as I am. When our photographer introduced himself, Jason exclaimed "I love Liquid Liquid" without missing a beat.
