Tribute to Paramount's 100 years in the business will feature music and clips from its most famous pictures
Jason Alexander will help Paramount Pictures celebrate its centennial with a special presentation at the Hollywood Bowl, featuring music and clips from the studio's 100-year history.
The "Seinfeld" star will host "The Big Picture" at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 2. The program will feature the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra led by David Newman, who has composed the scores for such films as "War of the Roses" and "Bowfinger."
They will be joined by three composers who helped provide the soundtracks to some of Paramount's biggest hits: Michael Giacchino ("Super 8," "Star Trek"), Lalo Schifrin ("Mission: Impossible") and Alan Silvestri ("Forrest Gump").
Cassic clips will be projected on the Hollywood Bowl’s screens while the orchestra performs the film scores. Films from every decade will be represented, as will the music of such film composers as Bernard Herrmann ("Psycho"), Henry Mancini ("Breakfast at Tiffany's") and John Williams ("Raiders of the Lost Ark").
Paramount kicked off its 100th anniversary with a star-studded photo shoot in Vanity Fair that brought together more than 100 stars from hits like "Love Story," "The Godfather," "Chinatown," "Star Trek" and "Titanic.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep and Chris Pine were among the big names flashing toothy smiles for the camera.
