Rock me, Gael
I want to put Gael García Bernal in my pocket and carry him everywhere.
Amazon has an app for that.
The Mexican actor (The Motorcycle Diaries) returns Friday for a third 10-episode season as the irrepressible young maestro Rodrigo in the streaming service's Mozart in the Jungle. With his fictional New York symphony scattered after a management lockout, he's in Venice to help coax a diva (Monica Bellucci) back to work just as his former assistant, Hailey (Lola Kirke), finds herself and her oboe stranded in that same romantic city.
What could possibly go wrong?
Created by cousins Roman Coppola and Jason Schwartzman with Alex Timbers and Paul Weitz - Schwartzman plays an orchestra-obsessed podcaster - Mozart in the Jungle is loosely based on a memoir by Blair Tindall.
The smart, sexy comedy also stars Bernadette Peters, Malcolm McDowell, and Saffron Burrows, and has grown into one of television's best workplace comedies, spotlighting not just classical music, but the people who compete fiercely to bring it to us.
- Ellen Gray
