Jason Schwartzman turns off the nice in 'Listen Up Philip'

Jason Schwartzman turns off the nice in 'Listen Up Philip'

October 20, 2014

In my experience, “Listen Up Philip” star Jason Schwartzman is an accommodating, easygoing guy. Ask him what he’s been listening to, and he’ll go look at his music library (answer: Steve Gunn, Television, Ultravox and Caribou). Ask him to tell a joke, and he will: “How many surrealists does it take to screw in a light bulb? A fish.” When I interviewed him in 2010 about “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” he spent most of the time kneeling on the floor, saying that’s more comfortable for him.
