Once There Was Clerks With Jay and Silent Bob, Now There's
a new show in the works hosted by Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman, partners in crime in the podcast Hollywood Babble-On. Is it possible that Jay may be jealous? While Garman goes on about their guest host, who's ass barks, Smith used Matt Damon and Ben Affleck instead of a normal scale system in determining rates of good vs bad; good=Damon and bad=Affleck. When asked which one of his favorite movies he'd remake and with which actors, he said he'd remake Jaws with Affleck as the shark. Ouch! He wasn't interested in taking prisoners.
"Necessity is the mother of invention" hence the campy drawings. It was a bit hard to get a one-on-one interview with photos of the project sense both men were very busy but trust me I tried.
In just a few short days they had guests that ranged from Alanis Morissette to Knocked Up's Seth Rogan and a hot number covered in tattoos who cooked a mean dessert in less then 5 minutes. He had "snow" and "dirt" everywhere. It even made it into Smiths mouth.
John Goodman, also a guest on the show, exchanged uncomfortable laughs with Smith while trying to stay on his bar stool before he quickly rushed off.
The show received a few stomach clenching laughs from the fans in the audience. They seemed to be having a good time. The crew maintained their interest and high hopes in the project as the pilots continued and though I can not imagine that Kevin Smith is really done with making movies it is very apparent that the new direction he and his partner have embarked on is a direction that they both feel passionate about. Lets see if their prospect money bags feel the same.
