IV Roundup: Sam Jaeger Quietly Signs On; Surf Band Lands Cameo; More


couple things to get caught up on, so here we go:

1) Star of television series Parenthood, Sam Jaeger, has joined the cast of Inherent Vice as Special Agent Jason Flatweed, confirmed through his own personal twitter account. Funnily enough, this will mark Jaeger's second project with Joaquin Phoenix in as many years, as he also has a part in Spike Jonze's upcoming "Her."


2) Surf band The Blank Tapes just announced through their record label that they will have a cameo performance in the film, and based on the video below and the design of the band's website, we'd guess they'll be right at home.



3) A few have inquired, and we can now confirm through a source on the ground: Inherent Vice WILL, like The Master, have an aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Many of you already know what this means, but for those not interested in technical gobbledygook, the size of the frame that the shots are being composed for will be less wide than the first five PTA films, which all preserve 2.35:1. Here's a diagram to help illustrate.

4) Max Ophüls' 1953 film The Earrings of Madame De... is now out on bluray through Criterion. PTA lent a wonderful introduction to the film a couple years back for it. A small sample:



5) If you live in Maryland, The Master will be hitting AFI Silver in 70mm on August 24 and 25. You can find more out about that here.

Whew, I think that's everything. As far as we know, Inherent Vice has not yet wrapped principal photography, but it should be getting close. In the meantime, consult our page on the film to find just about everything we know of it in one place.

Stay tuned to Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and updates.
"The Master" is now available on Blu-ray and DVD

  3. Well then Sam Jaeger would be the person to ask who Mickey Wolfmann is.

    3. I don't think she's portraying Shasta in those pictures.

    4. even with the announcement and all about Shasta I never was convinced Katherine Waterson is playing her. Shes supposed to have short hair (maybe im being obsessive,,,, but really? why wouldn't PTA have her fit to character?)
