Jason Schwartzman will always be the lovable dorky Max Fischer from Rushmore, but before he won our hearts on the big screen he was a musician. Jason was the original drummer for The OC theme song band Phantom Planet. He left the band a couple years back and recently released some solo music entitled Coconut Records.

"The wonderful thing about Coconut Records is it happened by accident," he told Ourstage.com, "There isn’t really a precident for what the next album will be like."

He continued, "The idea that people would show so much support just because they like something is… well, I am grateful and I thank everybody out there and I can’t believe that people heard the record and liked it enough to support it.”

He isn’t the only Schwartzman in the music-making biz. His younger brother, Robert, is lead singer in Rooney. And Jason knows the one way to win a girl’s heart is not by taking them to one of his brother’s shows. He said, "Chicks love my brother. I wouldn’t take a girl to a Rooney concert; I’d take them to dinner."
