Jason Schwartzman on KCRW’s The Treatment

Jason Schwartzman at KCRW

Jason Schwartzman appeared this past Wednesday on KCRW’s excellent program The Treatment, hosted by former New York Times critic and TCM host Elvis Mitchell.

Schwartzman elaborates on his use of music in preparing for his roles, his appreciation for great writing, and working with Sofia Coppola and Wes Anderson. He also discusses his character in Bored to Death, a Brooklyn-based lovelorn writer-turned-private detective.

You can stream the show and download a podcast of it at KCRW’s website, where you can also listen to past shows with Wes Anderson (1999, 2002, 2004) and Noah Baumbach among many other great filmmakers. (KCRW also talked to Jason about some of his favorite songs last year, you can listen to that here.)

The show premieres on HBO September 20th at 9:30pm ET.

Director Mark Romanek recently updated his photoblog with a picture of Wes (I assume in London) working on Fantastic Mr. Fox. Mr. and Mrs. Fox seem to be in a cage.

Romanek is in London doing post-production on his own film, out in 2010, that will also be distributed by Fox Searchlight. Full size picture here.
