This kinda sucks. I hope Hit Somebody proves worthy of being a Kevin Smith farewell film.

He still going to do acting?

JL4135d ago

Not sure, he just said that Hit Somebody will be the last movie he directs.

He will most likely become a producer. Most directors turn to that for a while then will direct again after a year or two.

Lol, I'm sorry but based off that pic, He does not look like an actor. But, hey who am I to judge. He could be a good actor. You don't have to have Hollywood looks to be a great actor. Kind of like the movie, Precious.

I liked Silent Bob it was like Chaplin but lead to explosion.

JL4135d ago

Really? You seriously don't know who Kevin Smith is?

Quagmire4135d ago

Was he in Get him to the Greek?

JL4135d ago

Get Him to the Greek? No. He did Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Clerks 2.

Quagmire4133d ago

They sound like pornos.

I hope he's just messing around. I'm really hopeful for another Clerks movie. Personally I'm a really big fan of his and can't say that I didn't enjoy all (still haven't seen Cop Out) his movies to some capacity.

Soldierone4135d ago

Didn't even think of that. Could be a marketing scheme could be joking or could be pulling a brett favre haha. Anything is possible but let's just hope clerks 3 is his last

Crazay4135d ago

when was there talk about Clerks 3?

Soldierone4135d ago

There isn't. He said something about it a long time ago but that's it. I'm just saying if he does retire then I hope his last movie is clerks 3 not this.

Soldierone4135d ago

Nooooo what about Clerks 3!
