My LA is a series of Q&A profiles with our favorite Angelenos. To see other profiles, be sure to check out My LA.
Roman Coppola, 47, is not your typical Los Angeles man. For starters, he has a deeply-rooted Hollywood identity (bordering on royalty; his father is director Francis Ford Coppola, his sister is Oscar-winner Sofia Coppola and his cousin is actor Jason Schwartzman). His family has a now-famous winery, Coppola Wines. He is about to re-launch the career of the infamously infamous Charlie Sheen with the upcoming film, “A Glimpse Inside The Mind of Charles Swan” (trailer above).
Coppola was also just nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Screenplay (along with Wes Anderson) for “Moonrise Kingdom" and he runs a successful production company with beloved director Mike Mills.
To top it off, Coppola is on the board of the Four Stories film series, which awards 4 blossoming screenwriters with the chance to work with established directors to produce their film. This year, Coppola and Schwartzman did a short as well, called "Die Again, Undead One" [watch below in the slideshow].
HuffPost LA caught up with Roman to talk about "Moonrise Kingdom," his 5 favorite bands, the best LA meal, and, of course, Coppola family traditions. Read the Q&A in the slideshow below.
