Jason Schwartzman is the rare musician-turned-actor who’s actually really good at both, and pretty humble about it.

He was first involved in mainstream music as the drummer for Los Angeles band Phantom Planet, who are mostly known for “California,” also known as The O.C. theme song. Schwartzman left Phantom Planet to pursue more acting roles, however, causing his now former band to lash out by recording an album that takes various veiled shots at him. It was worth it because his first film was the lead in Wes Anderson’s cult classic Rushmore.
