Jason Schwartzman Is A Total Prick In The 'Listen Up Phillip' Trailer
From the looks of this trailer, I don't think Phillip is the type of guy who listens. If you thought that you had the image of the insufferable nailed down, you might want to watch the trailer for Listen Up Phillip, because Jason Schwartzman will be the new archetype. In the film, he plays a writer who's achieved a little success with his book, and, yes, it's all gone to his head. He treats his girlfriend, played by Elizabeth Moss, like a jerk, and he manages to take Wes Anderson's hallmarks of aloofness and brevity, and turn them into weapons that keep anyone from liking him. Take a look, and realize that the only writers worth a damn these days are working on websites, where they could never possibly develop any ego, or even sense of self-worth, at any time.
