“oh my god, i've always wanted to be a private detective."

Everyone has a favorite Jason Schwartzman moment - Rushmore, Marie Antoinette, Darjeeling Limited, and now Bored To Death on HBO.

Since the show returns for a second season this month (and we really, really like it), we figured, why not put Jason Schwartzman on the NYLON Guys cover?

On being on Bored To Death"

I always thought, 'Being a private detective, that's a great thing. Putting your hand on a car with no one in it and saying, 'This engine is still hot.'"

On the new Kings of Comedy

"There are people like Judd [Apetow], or even Jonah [Hill] or Seth Rogen... they're real comedy students. They'll be talking, like on [the set of] Funny People, and be like, 'Oh my god, have you seen that guy doing that thing...' I don't want you to get the impression that I'm a nerd on the level of those guys."

On Bill Murray

"Being in his presence, there's a sense as if I was walking down the street with a quadruple black belt in karate."
