NPR Weekend Edition did a little piece on Wes Anderson’s influences in Fantastic Mr. Fox:
“Eric says he thinks that it’s based on my relationship with my older brother,” says Anderson. “He was always taller, and he’s very intelligent, and he was always better adjusted than I was. He’s also very well-mannered and just always had it together. Now he’s a doctor. … I was a kind of grouchier, less well-adjusted child, so I think that might’ve been an inspiration without me ever thinking of it.”
Jason Schwartzman is going to be the guest for the “Not My Job” segment on Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me (“the NPR news quiz”) this weekend. Here is Jason’s apperance.
