Kumar Pallana 1918-2013


We’re very sad to report the passing of Kumar Pallana, he was 94. Pallana appeared in four of Wes’ movies, Bottle Rocket, RushmoreThe Royal Tenenbaums and The Darjeeling Limited. We’ll be putting something together on each of these roles later, but for now crack a safe for Kumar.

Five Minutes with Kumar

A filmmaker named David Brown and Holiday Matinee have created a new documentary web series about Anderson favorite Kumar Pallana (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited), aptly titled “Five Minutes with Kumar.”

Here’s the trailer for “Five Minutes With Kumar”, a web-series about my good friend Kumar Pallana. You might recognize him from Wes Anderson or Steven Spielberg films. But there’s a lot more to Kumar than Mr. Littlejeans and it’s become my mission to spread the gospel on my 88 year-old best friend

The trailer is embedded, and you can watch the first two episodes at the links below.
