If you've been paying attention
, then you've long known that Dallas' own Symbolyc One
is the man behind the beat of Kanye West's inescapable hit of the moment, the King Crimson-sampling "Power." And, sure enough, the hits keep coming for that track--it's currently being used in the as-seen-above-and-on-TV advertisement for David Fincher's highly anticipated Facebook-focused film The Social Network
But, turns out, S1's not the only local musician with ties to the film. As Robert mentioned back in July
, another local musician, Caleb Landry Jones
, who we introduced you to via his band Robert Jones back in August of last year for a taping of our DC9 in Space series
, has a role in the film--as "Fraternity Guy," according to his IMDB page
. It's not the actor/musician's first gig by any stretch: You may have seen him No Country for Old Men
or this year's The Last Exorcism
, or, yes, as a musician in NBC's Friday Night Lights
, where he plays the drums (as he does in real life) in Landry Clarke's garage band. And you can see him in the upcoming X-Men reboot X-Men: First Class
, where he'll play Banshee, at some point in 2011.
So there you go.
And speaking of our weekly video series: It's coming back--tonight even, as we return to our old haunt at 122 E. 5th St. in Oak Cliff at 7:30 for a filming. Stop on by, if you feel so inclined. As always, these tapings are free to attend.
