I also did a comparison of Scott in that shirt to the one James Caan wore as Tony Archer in episode 2.15 Lekio (Radio) here.

NOT A VANITY PROJECT :: AN AFTERNOON AT SCOTT CAAN’S
BY MAC SANDEFUR

A torrid afternoon slid me like a sweat-puck through the difficult-to-navigate-while-driving-a-Chevy-Silverado hillsides of Los Angeles to engage with probably one of the most insultingly badass people in the world, Scott Caan. Famous for pretty much everything he does, Scott’s hunger for all things creative has taken him on a wild ride from neighborhood troublemaker, to rapper, to actor, to writer, to director, to father, and a lot more. His refreshing honesty and bluntness was a culture-shock for me, a fringe-raised burb-zombie incubated by buffer-zones and tiny bubbles of “You’re great,” speckled with, “Who the fuck are you, and why are you at my party?“

Intelligent and soft-spoken as he is alarmingly seasoned and rugged (his office looked and smelled like a Pendleton ad), Scott is pretty much an infinity-threat, easy to be jealous of, but really difficult not to like. In anticipation of the upcoming release of his new book Vanity, I anxiously slugged up to his dwellings to snatch knowledge on his creative passions, and the motivations that have driven them.

Everyone is interviewed but Scott for some reason. But it's a great look at the Season 5 promo shoot. Can't wait to see some of the actual photos from it.

No spoilers here either. Just the cast looking so pretty...

September 2nd, 2014

The new promo for the season is out from CBS. I'll mark this as spoiler although I didn't see anything necessarily new here. But just to be safe.

scott-caan-interview


Before talking with Scott Caan, the actor, I had no idea of what to expect. I mean, I’d seen him on the big screen in Novocaine and all of the Ocean’s series, and on TV in Entourage, but these were just characters, not the man himself. How close to the real Scott Caan were the people he portrayed? While I was supposed to be on the phone to talk about “Vanity,” his new book of photography and concurrent show at Martha Otero Gallery in Los Angeles, I was just as curious about finding out who he actually was. Who I discovered was a guy bursting with creativity and a clear outlook on life, whose talents stretched far beyond acting into music, writing, and of course, photography. He’d be just as comfortable on an Action Bronson track as he would be in a gallery, showing off the images he captured in a frame. Which is why we had this conversation in the first place.

The most obvious way to start this interview is by asking about how you got into photography?
On the first film I directed (Dallas 362) my cinematographer was a guy by the name of Philip Parmet. When I began the film I had the idea that I was going to focus on the acting, and while I knew what I wanted the movie to look like and understood what I felt was an interesting frame, I never really got it the way I did Until after I had spent six months with Phil Parmet. I basically glued myself to his hip while we were making the movie and he really inspired me to want to take photographs and understand the craft. He’s a fantastic photographer, and like I said, he inspired me to start shooting.

What was the first camera that you shot with?
A Nikon FE.

And you got this from your father as a gift?
Yeah, it was a camera that he had owned for a long time and then he gave it to me. He saw that I was getting into photography and film. It was a good gift.

Do you ever use a camera phone at all? Are you on Instagram?
Nope.

None of that?
Nope.

I actually looked on Instagram for you and instead found a pretty funny feed that was dedicated to your ass. So… the title of your book that’s coming out is Vanity.
Yeah.

Scott Caan dabbles in just about everything. On top of starring in Hawaii Five-0, doing theater productions, and yes, his former life rapping in '90s hip hop group, The Whooliganz, he's been taking photos over the past decade, shooting intimate and documentary snapshots of his life, his travels and his A-list friends.

Caan credits his start in photography in the early 2000s to his Nikon FE camera he got and the guidance of his mentor, cinematographer Phil Parmet (Grindhouse), whom he met on set of Dallas 362.

He's releasing his second book of photographs, "Vanity," on October 30. However, he'll be signing early copies of the book tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. at the opening reception of his photography show at the Martha Otero Gallery in the Fairfax District. His exhibition will be on display through September 13.

Caan spoke with LAist about the peculiar definition of "vanity," his bond with Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo who wrote the introduction to his book, and more.

Read the rest of the interview here.

I was hoping to get to this on opening night, but family obligations is preventing that. Since I know his exhibition will be there for 2 weeks, I'll try to go on my birthday, it just won't be the same as being there when he's there.
