James Murphy

James Murphy, having conquered the music world, is now turning to film. The former LCD Soundsystem frontman is one of five "celebrity directors" involved in the second-annual Project Imagination, an online short film project from Ron Howard and camera/tech conglomerate Canon. Using pictures submitted by the public as inspiration, the five directors will then make short films under the mentorship of Howard (maker of Splash, Parenthood and A Beautiful Mind, amongst others). The other directors besides Murphy are Eva Longoria, Twitter mogul Biz Stone, Jamie Foxx, and Georgina Chapman.

Meanwhile, the LCD Soundsystem movie Shut Up and Play the Hits will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 9.

For more on Project Imagination, check out a video with James Murphy below...

James Murphy looks like he has conquered a few robust hummus platters.

He needs help shaving.

Does he need help locating his feet? He probably hasn't seen them in a while.

James Murphy wants your photos, and by "photos" he means "table scraps."

Posted by Anonymous | August 31, 2012 3:21 PM

...and the early results are in - 2:52 and 3:21 actually made me smile and laugh. Good job, fellas!

Murphy, your beard is weird !

C'mon guys, be nice! Murphy doesn't look like a crap, I think he's just trying to get the lead role in an upcoming Dom Deluise biopic.

2:53 (ME): Are you and the Merc Lounge Crew gonna give him a rub and a tug too with that massage?

What an irritating voice!

Ok, in all honesty, I own and thoroughly enjoy every LCD album.

scariest beard. ever.

From the strange yet true file: I'm with 3:35, and yet I also enjoy Pentagram and Napalm Death.

who the fuck cares about this shit

He looks like a furry creature sidekick from a cartoon like Masters of the Universe or something.

LCD was retarded...

That beard is out of control

He should be decent at directing, considering he orchestrated the biggest indie pop-rock scam of the early 2010s with that MSG/T5 bullshit smoke and mirrors display.

Damn that bitch is fatter than me

Posted by Anonymous | August 31, 2012 5:21 PM

I'm with 5:19 that stunt showed him to be such a greedy cunt why won't he fuck off and go away. I mean he could have managed that without screwing the fans and utilizing the worst elements of the concert ticket industry.

Not sure why they have a silverback gorilla sitting at a desk in williamsburg, strange place

This band barely filled half the venue for their LAST show. Don't deserve coverage on a site like this.

Posted by Anonymous | August 31, 2012 6:04 PM

So he wants all the self involved bartenders\graphic\artists in the burg to send in their best finger paint masterpieces so he can "like" make a film out of it?

I'd hit it.

Is this going to be the new thing like when actors decide to start bands? This, the Dirty Projectors movie, I thought there was another one...

So many jealous, simple people here.

So he's not a dainty-sized fixie rider. Big deal. He made good music and he was probably responsible for you moving to Brooklyn.

"You're just jealous": the fall-back device for retards who don't belong on the internet

Posted by Dave | September 1, 2012 7:54 AM

I feel like his facial hairline is just way too high. Abnormally so. All you see are a pair of eyes looking through a mask of coarse hair.

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2012 8:06 AM

I'm 'jealous'? Of what?

There is a difference between being fat and being a bloated alcoholic.

7:17 he's the reason I come here to make fun of Brooklyn from a safe distance.

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2012 9:56 AM

I think he needs to direct himself to a salad bar

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2012 10:44 AM

He reminds me of Captain Kangaroo mixed with the Abominable Snowman. I'd even tell him that for reals, and not in a rude manner.

Did he start that beard trend for all the W burger kids?

Lin5an1ty is still more relevant than this beached whale.

930 -- you're jealous of his success and notoriety. So obvious.

Alec Baldwin's an asshole...


Guess James Murphy needs money to maintain his suite in Manhattan, I see...

Guess he's going to do five more reunion shows secretly, but only announce 1 official last concert.

Fucker.

Posted by Sam | September 3, 2012 1:19 PM

The only reason more people are moving to Brooklyn is that it's becoming more white...

Posted by Sam | September 3, 2012 1:21 PM

Possibly the laziest mother fucker alive. Three medicore albums and he retires. He's like the Sarah Palin of electronic music.

Wow, I don't understand these really negative comments about James Murphy. This looks like the stuff usually reserved for ridiculously high profile celebrities... The guy is a solid producer. Can he direct films? Who knows? Sure, it's unfair that he's given this opportunity based on his work in a different field but that's mostly Canon's fault. I doubt the authors of these comments would have the will power to turn down this opportunity to satisfy their principals.
