Is it true that Jason Schwartzman and Nicolas Cage are cousins? —Kari F., Rochester, N.Y.
A: Indeed. Schwartzman’s mother is actress Talia Shire, the sister of director Francis Ford Coppola. Cage, 53—who changed his last name for his acting career—is the son of August Coppola, Francis’ brother, so he’s Schwartzman’s cousin. Schwartzman, 36, who recently wrapped up two seasons on the Starz series Blunt Talk, voices the lead character in the wacky animated film My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, alongside Lena Dunham, Maya Rudolph and Susan Sarandon, in theaters April 14.
