"Rushmore" star Jason Schwartzman is poised to star in "Marc Pease Experience" opposite Ben Stiller.
Working his way smoothly in film acting, Jason Schwartzman has landed another coveted role following his high-profile one in "Marie Antoinette." Production Weekly has reported that the Los Angeles-born actor is joining Ben Stiller to star in "Marc Pease Experience", a big screen project coming from "Love Liza" helmer Todd Louiso.
While plot details are still being kept under warps, it is said that the picture will feature Schwartzman as the titular character. Filming is expected to start next March with Louiso also penning the script alongside Jacob Koskoff.
Schwartzman, the nephew of famed director Francis Ford Coppola, initially developed a career in music under alternative band Phantom Planet before taking full transition to acting. Besides "Experience", his other new big screen project is "The Darjeeling Limited" in which he will appear alongside Owen Wilson and Adrien Brody.
