Jack Antonoff Shares Insight Into the Making of Taylor Swift’s ‘New Year’s Day’

Out of all the producers Taylor Swift teamed up with for her new album Reputation, one was the indie-pop favorite collaborator Jack Antonoff.

While Antonoff fronts his own band, Bleachers, he also is busy in the studio working with artists like Lorde and St. Vincent to bring their latest albums to life, too.

After Swift performed one of her Antonoff-co-written songs on Monday night’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to an emotional reception, the producer took to Twitter to share a little bit of the back story of the piano-driven ballad “New Year’s Day.”

“Taylor doing New Year’s Day on Fallon was beautiful,” Antonoff wrote. “That song means a lot to me. Happened so quickly at my apartment. We texted the next morning to make sure it wasn’t a dream.”

It’s the only ballad and the final track on the much-hyped album, detailing the decaying glitter of the day after a big party — and the tender nostalgia of everyday, through-thick-and-thin love. With specific references that paint a vivid, recognizable picture — “Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby / Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor” — it might also be one of her most relatable tracks on Reputation.

‘This Is Us’ Recap: Jack Has a [Spoiler]?!

This Is Us is all about family, and while we thought we knew all the major players, the Tuesday, October 24, episode, titled “Brothers,” introduced us to a member of the Pearson family we never knew existed. Read on for more details about Kate’s big announcement, Deja’s past abuse, Kevin’s pain pill withdrawals and the mystery Pearson.

Kate and Toby Announce Their Pregnancy … to Total Strangers

After last week’s bombshell that Kate (Chrissy Metz) is pregnant, the show spent some time unraveling her anxieties. Now eight weeks along, she finally told Toby (Chris Sullivan). He was ecstatic — the exact reaction you would think an expectant mother would want from the father of her baby — but Kate set him straight right away. Because she’s 37, her pregnancy is considered geriatric; that, plus her weight, make it a high-risk pregnancy. So she told Toby to keep all his hopes and dreams about their baby to himself until the little one was born.

Kate was more than willing to keep the news quiet until she got into a fender bender with annoying, no-problems Madison from her support group. She blurted out that she was pregnant and decided it felt really good to say aloud. Kate gave Toby the same opportunity when she took him to a random coffee shop and gave him permission to tell a stranger. Toby cued up his happy song — Hootie and the Blowflish’s “Only Wanna Be With You” — and danced his way through the coffee shop as he told every person in sight that he and Kate are having a baby.

Deja Opens Up to Randall

Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Deja were still having trouble bonding, but she showed interest in attending a gala Sophie (Alexandra Breckenridge) was organizing. So Randall jumped at the chance to take her, even though he knew she only wanted to go because she’d developed a crush on Kevin (Justin Hartley). Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) was hesitant to let Deja go, but Randall assured her it would be fine.

And it was … until Randall unexpectedly lunged at Deja to keep her from eating a shrimp tail. She ran off to the bathroom, which is where she stayed until Randall entered the women’s restroom and waited outside the stall for her. Randall thought he came on too strong, but Deja opened up to him about her experience at one of her previous foster homes. She said her foster mom’s boyfriend would use magazines to beat up the kids — that’s why she didn’t like when Randall grabbed her. Luckily, Randall seemed to be on the right track with Deja as they headed back home.

Kevin’s Withdrawals

Kevin was in New York to be auctioned off at Sophie’s charity gala, but his pain pill dependency got the better of him. He was out of Vicodin, and after several calls to his doctor, he discovered he couldn’t get another refill. This led him to drink (a lot) and miss his part of the auction altogether. Sophie was disappointed in him for embarrassing her, and she pointed out that he’d been acting weird since he got to New York. Kevin rushed out to get some air and call his former doctor for pain pills.

Jack’s Dying Dad

In flashbacks, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) took young Randall and Kevin camping. He thought if they could work together as a team, they’d get along better. Rebecca (Mandy Moore) and Kate stayed behind for a movies-and-manicures day, but a phone call from Jack’s father’s nursing home derailed their plans. Stanley was close to dying, and since Rebecca couldn’t reach Jack at the campground, she and Kate headed to the nursing home to check on her father-in-law.

Turns out, this was the first time Rebecca and Stanley had met, so she didn’t quite know what to do. She finally reached Jack and told him what was going on, but Jack decided to stay at the campground with the boys. In his eyes, “that man’s been dead to me for a long time.”

Rebecca informed Stanley that his son wasn’t coming. Before she left, she told him what a great father Jack was. “You think you screwed him up, but you didn’t. You only made him stronger.”

A Brother of a Bombshell

Judging by the title, you’d think this episode was about young Kevin and Randall learning to get along. And in part, it was. All Kevin wanted to do was torture Randall, but once he found Randall’s notebook filled with ideas about how he could get Kevin to like him (talk about The Karate Kid, for one), Kevin made an effort to bond with Randall over marshmallows.

But the episode’s title was also referring to a pair of brothers we didn’t even know existed. Looking back on Jack’s childhood, we saw his father stop for a drink on the way to take Jack fishing. Jack sat in the car for a long time, assuring himself that his father would come back. Then, out of nowhere, a bespectacled little boy rose up from a nap in the back seat: Jack’s brother, Nicky!

After adult Jack returned from camping with Kevin and Randall, he looked through a box of old photos, where he found a picture of himself and his brother in the Vietnam War. So why haven’t we heard anything about Jack having a brother before now? Did he die in the war? Or is he still out there somewhere?

This Is Us airs on NBC Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET.

‘Batman: Gotham by Gaslight’ Is the Dark Knight vs Jack the Ripper

Gotham by Gaslight is a fan-favorite comic and for good reason. It was the first Elseworlds comic — “what if?” stories featuring DC characters — and showcased excellent art by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. The comic has maintained a strong following for years, and elements of it have cropped up in other Batman projects like a downloadable costume in Batman: Arkham Origins and an official sequel called Master of the Future.

Now, DC has brought the comic to life with one of their animated features. We got a sneak peek at the film while we were at New York Comic Con.

Putting the “Dark” in Dark Knight

Executive producer Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series) was excited to talk about how Gotham by Gaslight allowed the filmmakers to do some darker things with the Batman character. “This is more of a horror story,” Timm explained. He wasn’t even sure if the movie will be PG-13 or R. DC let the filmmakers be as graphic as they intended, and Timm seemed ambiguous as to which way the rating could go. But the fans overwhelmingly shouted their approval with a loud, “R!”

But, the subject matter isn’t the only dark element. Gotham by Gaslight takes visual inspiration from Mignola’s color palette and shrouds the movie in shadow. “We tried to get as much shadow as we could,” said director Sam Liu. And that shows. The clips we saw, which involved fights between Batman, Jack the Ripper, Selina Kyle, and three street urchins names Dickie, Jason, and Tim, were drenched in dark tones. It was a far cry from the brighter clips we’ve seen in other first-look footage.

Giving the World’s Greatest Detective a Good Mystery

The most intriguing element of the movie is Batman’s investigation into Jack the Ripper. “In the comic, there was only really one suspect,” Timm said. The filmmakers broaden the cast and present even more potential candidates for Jack the Ripper’s identity.

“He’s… a cousin to Sherlock Holmes,” Timm said. It looks like the mystery element of the movie is something the filmmakers really stress. Batman is rarely given a compelling mystery to solve, but that was an integral part of Gotham by Gaslight‘s screenplay.

Gotham by Gaslight hits digital, Blu-ray, and DVD in early 2018.

13 Halloween trees Jack Skellington would approve of

“Oh Halloween tree, oh Halloween tree, how lovely are your dead black branches and bone ornaments and — oh my gosh, is that blood?” Halloween is coming up quick, ghouls and ghosts. Have you decorated your Halloween tree yet?

If you’re wondering what in tarnation a Halloween tree even is, it’s simply a piece of decor that combines the best of both Halloween and Christmas, something our good friend Jack Skellington is all about. They’re spooky and strange. They’re downright hair-raising — and they’re the coolest piece of Halloween decor you can put in your house this season.

There’s only 46 days until Halloween and you do want Santa Claws to come to your house this year, right? You better get cracking on that tree, then!

1. The Scared Silly Tree

As Pinterest user, Iris Gonyea, said, this tree is perfect for those “that prefer a silly Halloween to a scary one.” And we’re all about those silly skeletons.

2. The Addams Family Spiderweb Tree

A simple, primitive way to spook up any corner and show a little sparse tree some love.

3. The Candy Corn Tree

DIY your own candy corn tree by purchasing a faux white tree along with orange and yellow spray paint. Diligently spray your orange and yellow tree sections, let dry, and decorate with all the Halloween-y things you have on hand.

4. The Haunted Candelabra Tree

If you’re looking to DIY an eerie centerpiece for your Halloween candlelit dinner, this wire tree is the way to go. Begin wrapping wire around a rock base and build up from there. Don’t give up — remember, patience is a virtue, child!

5. The Nightmare Before Christmas Tree

Obviously Jack Skellington would love this tree because he and his friends are featured in it. But on the flip-side, Jack probably wouldn’t be too happy with Oogie Boogie taking center stage (like he’s always wont to do…ugh!).

6. A Tree to Go Batty Over

Make your own haunted tree by tying a few dead sticks together at the base and propping the bundle up between a few sturdy pumpkins. The silhouetted bat ornaments that Kristen Whitbey added to her tree are the perfect chilling touch.

7. The Spooky Silhouette Tree

By using a faux white tree lit with white lights, any ornaments you hang will be silhouetted. Darken the room, plug in your tree, and watch the shadows come alive.

8. Black and Orange Everything Tree

This room is literally what we think heaven must look like. When can we move in?

9. The Bone-Chiller Tree

Skeletons, skulls, witches, and that truly terrifying crescent moon skull at the top make this tree the ultimate mashup of all of our favorite fears.

10. The Festive Fall Tree

Keep this DIY pumpkin tree up through Halloween and into Thanksgiving! Check out Lia Griffith’s tutorial on how to make your own paper pumpkins and get the whole family involved in putting together your perfect autumn-themed tree.

11. The AHS: Freak Show Tree

This tree is giving us creepy clown/Coney Island-gone-bad vibes. Those vintage eye-less masks give us the willies but we don’t care. We love it.

12. The Farm Stand Tree

So you grew a ton of veggies in your garden this year and want to show off your green thumb? Fashion a pumpkin/veggie tier tree out of some old furniture or milk crates, stack your bounty on top, and call it a farm stand tree! Bonus points if you carve some of the pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns.

13. The Alfred Hitchcock Tree

Hitchcock would love this avian-themed tree. It looks like these guys are taking a quite rest before shooting their next scene in The Birds.

Make The Nightmare Before Christmas a reality in your house this year with a crafty Halloween tree. The presents underneath may be a bit unsavory, but hey, at least the tree looks great.

All the Ways Jack Could Die in This Is Us Season 2

Ever since it was officially confirmed in Season 1, Episode 5, that Jack Pearson is sadly dead (like so many had already assumed) in the present day, fans have wondered exactly how he died.

It’s been one of the biggest mysteries This Is Us has produced (so far) — and one viewers just can’t let go. Thankfully, come Season 2, Jack’s death will be revealed. While appearing on Today in June, Mandy Moore dished that the audience will find out how Jack died in the Season 2 premiere. “That’s what we’ve been told,” she said.

As for the drama’s creator, Dan Fogelman, he chatted with E! News in August about Jack’s death and said that in the sophomore season’s first episode, there will be “a big, giant piece of the puzzle that will potentially set the internet abuzz, but hopefully give some momentum to that storyline.”

More: This Is Us’ Jack & Rebecca Are Not Happy Campers in New Season 2 Photos

For Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Jack, he wishes fans would focus more on his character’s life rather than his death. He spoke with the New York Post in June and said, “It bothered me that people were so wrapped up in wanting to know [about] Jack’s death. Whenever someone would say to me, ‘I was bummed I didn’t find out,’ I would say, ‘I’m disappointed you didn’t focus on his life.'” He added, “People are dissatisfied no matter what. If Jack dies: ‘Why did you kill him?’ If Jack lives: ‘Why didn’t you show us how he died?’ People just need to calm down … and understand that things are going to unfold as they’re supposed to unfold.”

Until any type of answer is given about Jack dying, it’s time to take a look at all the theories out there speculating exactly how he died. There are a few that seem pretty far-fetched, though there’s always a chance one of the following theories will turn out to be true.

1. Alcohol-related

It’s no secret that Jack can’t just have one drink. In the Season 1 finale, he drove drunk to Rebecca’s show and was wasted by the time he got there. There’s a chance Jack either gets into a fatal car accident because he is driving drunk or a medical issue evolves due to his heavy drinking.

2. A plane crash

There are several theories that Jack died in a plane crash. Originally, some viewers thought maybe he died on 9/11. However, seeing as Jack died when Kate, Kevin and Randall were teenagers (in the ’90s), this isn’t plausible, especially since the Sept.11 attacks took place in 2001.

Then there is a different theory that Jack died in the 1994 USAir jet crash. Seeing as Kate has expressed a fear of flying and Kevin threw out all of his toy planes after Jack died, fans think maybe those two elements are directly related to Jack’s death. For those unaware, in 1994, USAir Flight 427 was heading to Pittsburgh, where the Pearson family lives. All 132 passengers on the flight were killed. What if Jack was on that flight?

However, The Hollywood Reporter crafted a handy timeline of This Is Us events, and according to the outlet, Jack died sometime between 1996 and 1999. If that is the case, then he couldn’t have been on USAir Flight 427.

3. Miguel killed him

This is one of the more ridiculous theories (almost as much as Kate truly being responsible), but it’s one of Ventimiglia’s favorites, as he revealed at June’s ATX Television Festival. After it was revealed in Season 1 that Miguel and his wife were divorcing, fans began wondering if maybe he killed his former BFF, Jack, so he could then be with Rebecca. That’s pretty dark and doesn’t seem likely, but you never know.

4. Suicide

There are some fans who think Jack may have taken his own life. It’s awful to think about and would be beyond upsetting if this turns out to be the case. Here’s hoping this isn’t how Jack died.

All the ways Jack could die in This Is Us Season 2

5. A terminal illness

In Episode 7, there was a bit of focus on Jack’s forgetfulness. Now, either he was just under a lot of stress, which was influencing his memory and thoughts, or there’s more to this. What if he was dealing with some type of illness, like possibly Alzheimer’s, and had no idea? It could’ve come out of the blue and killed him instantly. Or, maybe Jack knew he was sick and kept it a secret.

6. Heart attack

According to some fans, Jack may have died from a heart attack. As suggested by PopSugar, seeing as Kate was so upset over Toby’s heart surgery, that could’ve been a sign that Jack also had heart-related issues, which then caused his death. Or maybe it means nothing at all.

7. He died a hero

There’s been some speculation that Jack died a hero after saving Miguel’s family from a house fire, per a Reddit user. After moving in with Miguel (as he set out to do after his fight with Rebecca in the Season 1 finale), the house goes up in flames and Jack tries to save Miguel’s kids (who are staying with him, since he and his ex-wife are probably divorced at this time), but in the end, Miguel is the only one who makes it out in time. This type of event would obviously be a way to bring Miguel and Rebecca closer together since, you know, they are married in the present.

This would also partially explain the resentment Kevin has for Miguel. It might also possibly shine a deeper light on why Kate feels responsible for her father’s death, since she pushed him to make things better with Rebecca and, well, we know how that all ended up — with Jack leaving to go stay with Miguel.

8. He was murdered… by someone other than Miguel

According to TV Guide, based on Jack’s zodiac sign (he’s a Virgo), all signs of his death point to murder. Seriously, this is quite the elaborate theory and one you need to read immediately. Based on a random and unverified study, Virgos apparently are more likely to have unexplained deaths or be murder victims.

It actually makes a little bit of sense, especially if you think back to the altercation Jack experienced in the Season 1 finale after winning all that money in a poker game. Remember when the men followed Jack and his friend outside, beat them up, took their money back and then said, “Ray sees either one of you again, he’ll kill you.” What if Jack has a gambling debt he can’t pay? Though, it’s unclear why Kate would feel responsible if this is the case. Either way, it’s just another theory to think about.

The Slave Behind Jack Daniel’s Whiskey Recipe to Receive New Honor

Jack Daniel's

The slave who helped craft Jack Daniel’s, the most successful American whiskey of all time, is finally getting his due recognition.

(Image: Pixabay)

 

Although Jasper Newton “Jack” Daniel is credited with inventing Jack Daniel’s in the 19th century, the company revealed last year that Daniel learned the trade of whiskey making from a slave named Nathan “Uncle Nearest” Green. (Green’s nickname is often incorrectly misspelled as “Nearis.”) Daniel then went on to open the Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey distillery in 1875, where Green worked as the master distiller until at least 1881.

New York Times best-selling author Fawn Weaver says she discovered the story of Green from an article published by The New York Times that moved her to dig more into his history. That’s when she learned that Green was not the only African American involved in the process of distilling Jack Daniel’s whiskey. In fact, generations of Green’s descendants worked together with the Daniel family to make the iconic whiskey decades later. Some of Green’s offspring still work in the whiskey industry today.

Now, Weaver will dedicate a book, memorial park, street naming, and museum to pay tribute to Green’s legacy. She also plans to set up a college scholarship fund for his descendants.

“When Fawn contacted us, we were excited to hear that someone was bringing to light all of this information about our family,” said Mitchell Green, a relative of Green, in a statement. “Until now, only our family and a small community were aware of the impact our ancestor had on the Tennessee whiskey industry.”

According to a press release, Weaver and her husband have purchased the farm where the original Jack Daniel’s Distillery was located and have set up The Nearest Green Foundation to ensure that Green’s story “will never again be forgotten.”

“Already in the works are artifacts being placed on permanent loan to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.; plans for a museum in Lynchburg dedicated to the history of Tennessee whiskey; the renaming of a street to Nearest Green Way; the Nearest Green Memorial Park in Lynchburg; a book scheduled for completion this year; an improvement project at Highview Cemetery in Lynchburg, where Green is believed to have been buried; and a scholarship fund to benefit his direct descendants. The scholarship’s first recipients are Matthew McGilberry and Marcus Butler, both attending college this fall,” reads the press release.

“To correct the record, Weaver has written a new foreword and preface for Jack Daniel’s official biography, “Jack Daniel’s Legacy,” which will be republished this month in honor of the 50th anniversary of its original release.”

To top it off, Weaver will release a handcrafted, ultra-premium Tennessee whiskey called Uncle Nearest 1856 later this month.

“When I met with the descendants of George Green, the son most known for helping his father, Nearest, and Jack Daniel in the whiskey business, I asked them what they thought was the best way to honor Nearest, said Fawn. “Their response was, ‘No one owes us anything. We know that. But putting his name on a bottle, letting people know what he did, would be great.’”

Monkees Star Mike Nesmith Reveals All on Drugs, a Near-Crippling Illness, and Jack Nicholson ‘Bromance’ in New Memoir

Michael Nesmith has done far more than just Monkee around. Famed as one-quarter of the legendary television/music/live performance project in the late 1960s, Nesmith shared highlights of his unusual life in a new memoir, Infinite Tuesday. In it, he talks of his high-flying days in the Monkees, personal and financial struggles following their dissolution, and the shocking mysterious illness that nearly left him paralyzed.

The Monkees were designed as television’s answer to the Beatles, and their instant success soon brought them into upper echelon of fame alongside the real Fab Four. Nesmith stuck up a friendship with John Lennon, staying at his house in the London suburb of Weybridge, and even attending sessions for the Beatles’ landmark 1967 album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

He also hung out other music legends, including Johnny Cash and Jimi Hendrix, but his real kinship was with a struggling actor by the name  of Jack Nicholson.

“I met Jack through Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider, the producers of The Monkees,” he writes. “We became friends and steady companions right away. Jack was still bombing around the streets of LA in his yellow VW convertible looking for work as an actor-writer-director, and he was good company.”

The pair quickly became inseparable. “When Jack came on the scene of The Monkees’ TV production, he was not yet famous and was one of the few people I met who seemed self-aware and grounded. At the same time his demeanor and sense of humor was exceptional and like catnip for me. I thought he was the coolest guy, and since this was long before the term bromance entered the US lexicon, some people in my crowd of friends thought my fascination with him was beyond the pale.”

Nicholson would co-write the band’s 1968 feature film, Head, which inadvertently served as the band’s undoing. Produced amid a haze of drugs, the rambling non sequitur storyline alienated their teenybopper fanbase and infuriated critics. It was a massive commercial failure, and the Monkees disintegrated soon after.

“ the end of the TV show and the unsuccessful release of Head, I was left to fly on my own, and things of the most mundane type took horrifying turns,” he writes of this troubling time. “The IRS, which I had ignored for several years, showed up with a huge bill for unpaid taxes and started seizing property.” The government would ultimately leave him “essentially penniless.”

But it would get worse. Songs he recorded with his new group failed to sell, his decade-long marriage to college sweetheart Phyllis imploded, and he “ran off” with the wife of a close friend. He sunk what little money he had into constructing a country music studio for a record company, but the plans were ultimately yielded nothing.

“I found myself in free-fall,” he writes. “Every seem in the sack of my life started to split and all the contents started leaking out. My affair with my friend’s wife became even more horrible to me, but I didn’t know how to retreat….I had no opportunities as an actor, a player, a singer, a songwriter, or a producer.”

Nesmith spent most of the ’70s trying to piece together his post-Monkees life by following a series of gurus and experimenting with the psychedelic, LSD. “Once I took it I could see how different life looked,” he says of the experience. He tripped only a handful of times (“Enough to get a good feel for the drug.”) describing the sensation as “pleasant” but ultimately unfulfilling. “The message was, ‘You don’t need drugs to reach this space,’” he admits.

He would ultimately find renewed purpose by drawing on his Monkees past and filming an imaginative promotional video for his 1979 song, “Rio.” Intrigued by this new “music video” concept, he set about laying the groundwork for the network that would become MTV.

His mother, the inventor of Liquid Paper (a.k.a. White Out) left Nesmith a multi-million dollar inheritance upon her death in 1980, putting an end to any money worries. Still, the loss devastated him, and the sudden wealth left him confused. Nesmith described the windfall as “like a cross between a tsunami and a Category 5 hurricane” and recalls phone calls from friends offering an awkward mix of condolences and congratulations.

He would spend the next few decades exploring the nascent home video market, writing two novels, and producing films, including the sci-fi comedy Repo Man. But Nesmith endured more tragedy in 2007 when an unidentified illness left him unable to walk. “I was essentially helpless, a captive in my home,” he says. Visits to a variety of specialists were not helpful, in his eyes: “Each doctor I went to had diagnoses that were variations of the same story. While they did not think it was fatal in the near term, because they didn’t really know what it was, they thought it might be incurable.”

He began to embrace the Christian Science faith, which he had been exposed to since his youth and it appeared to succeed where modern medicine had failed. “I spent hours daily in painless study and prayer and contemplation. Slowly I saw some normalcy return, and as I got my movement back in my hand, I was able to get up and move around.”

While something a miracle, Nesmith takes a fairly level-headed approach to the recovery. “I felt confident it wasn’t supernatural in any sense, just natural good taking care of her own, replacing the beliefs of a mortal with the facts and forces of the supremely natural world.”

Tumbling Jack Russell Wins Hearts After Hilariously Bad Dog Show Run

You don’t have to be a winner to go home a champion, as one rescue dog proves.

The Jack Russell terrier named Olly is winning hearts around the world following a hilariously bad performance at the Crufts dog show in the U.K. on Friday after being tasked with navigating an obstacle course.

Entertaining video captured the pooch enthusiastically giving it his all as he dashed and leaped in the air as part of the program’s Rescue Dog Agility, as a woman with the Blue Cross tried to keep up.

Unfortunately for Olly, though he sure had speed and stamina on his side, his precision was a bit skewed. The tiny dog was seen running circles, face-planting after a premature jump and at one point pausing to sniff out a corner.

“Oh, what a nose dive! And he couldn’t care less,” the announcer said while laughing after watching a replay of the dog barrel rolling across the floor before jumping back onto his feet as if it never happened.

“Olly’s totally crazy, as you can see he’s having a ball. Loves life and exercise,” the announcer summed up the endearing pooch’s carefree performance.

By Sunday, video of Olly’s antics became one of the top trending videos on YouTube, earning him internet gold.

You go, Olly.

James Marsden Takes Lookalike Teenage Son Jack to the Screen Actors Guild Awards

James Marsden brought a special date to the 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards: his lookalike son Jack!

“We’re excited. I’m just trying to keep up with him, the dress, the attire, he wears things I can’t,” the Westworld actor said during PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly‘s red carpet pre-show.

Rocking platinum blonde hair and a head-to-toe black ensemble, the sunglass-wearing 15-year-old added: “I’m ready.”

Marsden, 43, and ex-wife Mary Elizabeth Linde are also parents to 11-year-old Mary. The actor also has a 4-year-old son, William Luca, from a another relationship.

“He’s a great kid, he doesn’t need much advice, I go to him for advice,” Marsden said of his son during E!’s red carpet show.

The proud dad also shared some sound advice to his son, who aspires to be a musician. “Stay true to your heart and respect others regardless of what business you’re in, be a decent human being,” he said.
