Jason Schwartzman

Jason Schwartzman was born on June 26, 1980 in Los Angeles, California, U.S., United States, is Actor, Screenwriter, and Musician. Even before his career began, Jason Schwartzman had to face the herculean task of getting out of his family’s shadow which he accomplished quite admirably. His family’s history obviously influenced him as he formed a band at the age of fourteen and bagged his first movie role at eighteen. His debut in the film ‘Rushmore’ was extremely convincing and he essayed a complex role with ease. The next few years saw him more aligned to his music projects, with only a handful of acting appearances. But as his acting skills garnered attention, he began getting better offers which led to a change in his approach, as he quit the band to make acting his priority. Over the next few years, he was cast many times in substantial roles as a part of an ensemble cast, as well as in supporting roles. He continued his music passions, releasing two solo albums, from which some of the songs have featured in TV shows. He showed his versatility by acting in some TV shows too, most notably in ‘Bored to Death’.

🌙 Zodiac

Jason Schwartzman’s zodiac sign is Cancer. According to astrologers, the sign of Cancer belongs to the element of Water, just like Scorpio and Pisces. Guided by emotion and their heart, they could have a hard time blending into the world around them. Being ruled by the Moon, phases of the lunar cycle deepen their internal mysteries and create fleeting emotional patterns that are beyond their control. As children, they don't have enough coping and defensive mechanisms for the outer world, and have to be approached with care and understanding, for that is what they give in return.

🌙 Chinese Zodiac Signs

Jason Schwartzman was born in the Year of the Monkey. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Monkey thrive on having fun. They’re energetic, upbeat, and good at listening but lack self-control. They like being active and stimulated and enjoy pleasing self before pleasing others. They’re heart-breakers, not good at long-term relationships, morals are weak. Compatible with Rat or Dragon.
