Jason Schwartzman and Woody Jackson ()
Actor Jason Schwartzman (seen at L) was a musician before he began acting, and he still makes music today. Now he's added composer to his repertoire. He and his old friend musician, Woody Jackson (R), teamed up to write the music for the movie Goats. The two talk about how hard it is to get into composing and their hopes that this will lead to more gigs. Plus, Schwartzman recounts the story of how he got cast in the Wes Anderson film Rushmore which launched his acting career.
Keanu Reeves ()
Keanu Reeves has been busy. He's branching out beyond acting these days, even as he continues to get work as an actor. He just finished principal photography on his directorial debut, Man of Tai Chi, and he's produced the documentary Side by Side which is now available on VOD through Tribeca Film. In that movie Reeves interviews top tier talent in filmmaking today. Christopher Nolan, Danny Boyle, Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, George Lucas, David Fincher, David Lynch, Steven Soderbergh and more reflect on the digital revolution and their feelings about shooting on film versus digital. What they say may surprise you. Plus, Reeves reveals he'd be interested in doing another Bill and Ted movie.
