Schwartz's Adventure

Going on any adventure with Jason Schwartzman sounds fun, especially if it's anything like Darjeeling Limited, or if it also includes Jason Segel and Jonah Hill.

Schwartzman talked a little bit about THE ADVENTURER'S HANDBOOK, ďWeíre doing it, I believe, in Spring. Itís the opportunity to work with people who I respect a lot, like Jonah and Jason and Akiva [Schaffer]. Those are the kind of things you look for [in a project]; to work with people who are funny, talented and smart. Itís also a really funny movie, and a lot happens.Ē HANDBOOK is being directed by HOT ROD and SNL director Akiva Schaffer. I don't know about any of you, but I really enjoyed HOT ROD. Andy Samburg is hilarious, and anything that has Danny McBride in it is automatically that much funnier. I still haven't seen LAND OF THE LOST yet though.

HANDBOOK is originally a book about four friends who basically loathe their adult lives and decide to go on a globe spanning adventure together. Schwartzman says, "Itís very crazy and wild. Itís just a good, unexpected adventure movie." The character is true to life almost as he plays a burned-out Grammy winner. The actor actually has been a part of the music scene for awhile now with playing drums for a bit with Phantom Planet, his own band Coconut Records, and scoring FUNNY PEOPLE. He quickly mentioned not wanting to spoof the music industry, ďIím not gonna spoof. No, I don't ever try to spoof anything. Iím going to approach it as honestly and sincerely as I can, and try to be a guy whoís a successful musician. Because itís a really delicate script; I donít want to tip it too far and make it like a big joke. Itís not a spoofy kind of movie, but I will be playing quite an interesting fellow.Ē

He's also excited about his hair in the movie. I wonder if he will have the Art Garfunkel look.

Extra Tidbit: I say Charlie Day as the fourth friend. What do you guys think?

Does this count as a spoof?

Ooo! This completely slipped my mind. Unless he really thinks it's an accurate representation.

Already really excited for this project. besides the cast, Akiva is directing? Kiv!?!?!? Awesome! And don't even tempt me with how amazing the casting of Charlie Day would be.
He should be cast in something though...
