Jason Schwartzman is Bored to Death

Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Jason Schwartzman has been cast as the lead in an upcoming HBO original comedy series entitled “Bored to Death.” Here’s the snippet on the description:

The Jonathan Ames-penned “Bored” centers on Jonathan (Schwartzman), a struggling thirtysomething writer with a drinking problem in Brooklyn who, following a painful breakup with his girlfriend, decides to emulate his heroes from the novels of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. He takes out an ad pretending to be a private detective and starts taking cases — solving some and making others worse.

If anyone can pull off the role of a young Brooklyn-ite struggling with inner demons and reacting to them in a less than expected manner it’s Jason Schwartzman. Unfortunately production doesn’t start until September so it will be some time before this one even has the potential to air.

It should also be noted that Mr. Schwartzman has been cast in the upcoming Judd Apatow flick Funny People alongside Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen and Eric Bana. Both projects should prove to be very interesting.

Thanks to JB for the heads up. I am Michael Eades.

    You and your family can also have a lot of fun relocating
    at Phoenix, especially if you ike arts. This
    means court cases will be piling up in these countries as clients sue to get their money out.
    All in all, this appears to be a bank failure
    that they are trying to treat as a non-bank failure.

    You won’t necessarily want to take everything with
    you when moving overseas, it is better to get rid of
    what you don’t want in your current country than when you arrive in your
    new country. Add to that an increased distance,
    culture and language between destination and present location and it can look like a lot of your hair is going to
    end up in your hands.
