for Most Promising Actor from the Chicago Film Critics Association, among other honors. He again starred for Anderson in "The Darjeeling Limited," which the two wrote with Roman Coppola; in the short film "Hotel Chevalier"; and, in voiceover, on "Fantastic Mr. Fox" with George Clooney, Meryl Streep and Bill Murray.

Schwartzman's other movies include Judd Apatow's "Funny People," opposite Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill and Aubrey Plaza; Edgar Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" with Michael Cera; Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette," alongside Kirsten Dunst; David O.

The Los Angeles native recently starred for three seasons as Jonathan Ames on HBO's Brooklyn-based acclaimed television series "Bored to Death," alongside Ted Danson and Zach Galifianakis.

In the musical world, Schwartzman was lead drummer for the Los Angeles-based band Phantom Planet. Their second studio album, "The Guest," written in part by Schwartzman, was released by Epic Records in February 2002; shortly thereafter, the band embarked on a 14-month tour with Incubus. By 2006, he had a new endeavor as a one-man group, under the name Coconut Records. Coconut Records released its debut album, "Nighttiming," in 2007, with contributions from Incubus and Kirsten Dunst. Schwartzman wrote all of the songs and performs the majority of the instruments. The song "Summer Day" was featured on the "Spider-Man 3" soundtrack. The song "West Coast" was heard in an episode of the television series "The O.C." as well as in Matt Reeves' "Cloverfield." Coconut Records' second album, "Davy," was released in January 2009.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Schwartzman continues to reside there.
