Young Buzz: Jack Kilmer

This Spring I happened to catch “Palo Alto”, director Gia Coppola’s debut feature film based on James Franco’s book on adolescent life in Northern California. I was instantly drawn to the “Coppola aesthetic”, as it relates so much to what high school was like for me growing up in Washington, DC. It really is a film to put on your list to watch.

Jack Kilmer, who is the son of actor Val Kilmer had a breakthrough role in the film. I think its safe to say that this isn’t the last that we will be hearing from him. His honest portrayal of Teddy reminded so much of the demeanor of guys in my own classes in school. From his grungy attire and all around angst, it really put me right back to being the awkward girl in school doing random things for all sorts of reasons.

He even captured the attention of Hedi Slimane, as he walked in the Saint Laurent mens SS15 show just a few months ago. Whether actor or model he’s got an interesting look that lends to all sorts of genres.
