It's nice to meet your heroes and it be as good as you'd hoped.

Jason Schwartzman's memories of childhood trips to classical concerts are filled with trepidation. But another book turned that notion on its head: Blair Tindall's , which Schwartzman and filmmaker Roman Coppola, along with Academy Award-nominated writer Paul Weitz, have turned into a new series for Amazon, also called "Mozart in the Jungle." Set in New York, the show stars Gael García Bernal as Rodrigo De Souza, a young conductor brought in to shake up the New York Philharmonic, and Lola Kirke as Hailey, an aspiring oboist and ingénue who becomes Rodrigo's assistant.
However, barriers sometimes hinder parents from exercising their right to engage.Another character, Lizzie, who is roommates with Kirke's Hailey, is "so Brooklyn" and throws a party in their huge apartment where a bunch of other "typical Brooklynites" end up competing over who can play the best woodwind solo. Speaking exclusively to The FIX, the 20-year-old Queensland-native opened up about the personal challenges he's faced since being on the show, including his initial hesitation to work with Delta Goodrem. The 33-year-old actor star says while Blanchett is one of his favourite people on the planet, he was a bit nervous working with her at first, reported NME magazine."It was wildly intimidating but she is one of my favourite people on the planet."When are you supposed to laugh and applaud -- when are you not? In the initial stages, Schwartzman had talked and talked about Tindall's book to friends and family (which potentially even influenced the name of his cousin-in-law Thomas Mars' album, "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix").
