What's the best way to get really wild?
Well, you can always start by kicking out your favorite jams and going from there!
The cast of Where the Wild Things Are is extremely eclectic and unique, but their respective playlists may be just as wild as they are! Forest Whitaker and Lauren Ambrose both have a devout appreciation for classic jazz, while Catherine O'Hara spends her time enjoying Indian music and Catherine Keener is jamming Karen O. The biggest sonic surprise though comes from the film's 12-year-old star, Max Records—he loves The Smiths! Well, there's really no one wilder than Morrissey so it all somewhat makes sense!
Forest, Lauren, Catherine, Max and Catherine talked to ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino about their playlists for this exclusive feature. Check out what they're all spinning below and don't miss Where the Wild Things Are this weekend!
