Jason Schwartzman Is the Guy You Love to Hate in Listen Up Philip

Jason Schwartzman isn't an asshole in real life. But he does a fine job of playing one onscreen in Listen Up Philip, the latest indie effort from writer-director Alex Ross Perry. In the film, out this Friday, Schwartzman plays Philip Lewis Friedman, a successful—albeit venomous—young writer who is eagerly awaiting the publication of his second novel. . . and making all those who know and love him, including his doting girlfriend Ashley (played by Elisabeth Moss) and his idol/fellow novelist Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce), miserable in the process. see more

Mike Rowe Wants To Know What You Do For a Living

It's been a busy few years for Mike Rowe. After doing nearly every distasteful job imaginable for eight seasons on Dirty Jobs, he formed MikeRoweWorks, a foundation that provides scholarships to trade schools, and launched Profoundly Disconnected, a PR campaign to promote skilled labor as a necessary and lucrative alternative to college. Now he's back on CNN with Somebody's Gotta Do It, premiering October 8th. On a recent Sunday afternoon, Mike took a break from writing his new show's theme song to relax at home in San Francisco and re-read his favorite novels (John MacDonald's Travis McGee series). He bookmarked see more

Creating Viggo Mortensen's Retro Look in The Two Faces of January

DETAILS: The Two Faces of January (out tomorrow) is based on Patricia Highsmith's novel about an American couple on the run who get mixed up with a local scammer. Did you go back to the book for inspiration? STEVEN NOBLE: I've been very true to the novel. I also looked at a lot of films from the time: Fellini's La Dolce Vita, René Clément's Plein Soleil, Godard's Breathless. We also got a lot of amazing home movies from the holidaymakers of the time. see more

Bret Easton Ellis Has Seen a Dead Body, Tried to Buy Coke on Twitter

Mr. Ellis, have you ever seen a dead body? Yes, certainly. Growing up in L.A. I have driven past car accidents with a dead body that had not been covered yet. I have seen a dead body, but I have never been brought to a dead body to see it. The first dead body I ever saw was at my school. A bus driver had a heart attack. He was dead and he was still sitting in the seat. see more

Boardwalk Empire's Kelly Macdonald Can't Believe Margaret Schroeder Is Still Alive

Kelly Macdonald doesn't give away too much about herself. She's not the kind of actress you're likely to find being followed by TMZ cameras or caught drunk in front of some trendy nightclub. Much like the characters she plays—including Boardwalk Empire's Margaret Thompson (née Schroeder)—there's an enigmatic air about the 38-year-old Glasgow native, which is part of what makes her so compelling to watch. And why she has managed to fly just slightly under the radar (in a good way) since making her big-screen debut at the age of 20 as Ewan McGregor's naughty schoolgirl cohort in Danny Boyle's Trainspotting. see more

Balmain's Olivier Rousteing on Why Designing Clothes is All About Sex

Olivier, what role does sex play in your creative process as a fashion designer? I think sex is really important because there is a lot to play with when you have sex on your mind. It's something that has no limit and no boundaries. And what is cool about sex is that it's all about some kind of fantasy. When I create clothes for a girl, in my mind I always think about what I would want if I were the girl or if I would love to have sex with her. So it's really something where I play see more

How Honor Titus Went From Shooting Hoops with Julian Casablancas to Opening for The Strokes

Honor Titus was a little late for our interview. The 24-year-old lead singer of Cerebral Ballzy—one of just eight bands represented by the indie label, Cult Records, founded by The Strokes' Julian Casablancas—was busy arguing with a stranger outside the bar where we met him. Titus' aggression takes many forms, and while he may best known for his expletive-laden punk lyrics, he actually has a lot to say about modern urban life. In advance of the June 17th release of Cerebral Ballzy's new album Jaded & Faded, we spoke to him about growing up in New York City, his see more

Cold in July's Michael C. Hall Returns with a Mean Mullet, More Macabre, But No More Henley Shirts

Ask Michael C. Hall about the recurring theme of morbidity in the roles he plays, and the 43-year-old actor will quickly agree with you, but he'd also point out that it's in those darkest places that he—and, by extension, we—discover what it is to be a human. So it should come as no surprise that in his first big-screen appearance since wrapping an eight-season run as the lovable serial killer Dexter Morgan, Hall's character murders someone. But the truth is much more complicated. see more

Actor Viggo Mortensen on the Influence of Beat Culture, the Globalization of Personal Style, and When to Say No to a Movie

Mr. Mortensen, have you ever been called a liar? Everybody is at some point, right? Humans are inconsistent and that's what makes them interesting. If they were completely predictable, it wouldn't be so interesting. And movies that show people as being unpredictable are more interesting than movies that show someone behave the same way all the time. It doesn't have to be the main aspect of the story, but I like characters where you see that. see more

Bottega Veneta Creative Director Tomas Maier Is Sick of Brand Logos and "Stupid" Fashion Rules

Mr. Maier, how much attention do you pay to the rest of the fashion industry? I don't look. I find it distracting. I'm more interested in our customer, who he is and what he's looking for. In my twenties, I looked at everything I could. I went to every fashion show, I sneaked in anywhere I could. I wanted to absorb the most I could and see a lot. I think that's important when you're a student or when you're starting out—you need to see things. But then I think there comes a time when that's just distracting, always see more
