For some reason, the marvellous Jason Lee is currently appearing in the inevitably-crap Alvin and the Chipmunks threequel. We’re not going to talk about that. In fact, in an attempt to actively avoid talking about it we’re going to talk about all the other super stuff he’s done – that way, if someone brings up Alvin and his hellish brood you can just go LA LA LA SKATEBOARDS!
Since his ultra-low budget 1994 debut, Clerks, writer-director Kevin Smith has forged his reputation and cult status with potty-mouthed comedies, which celebrate the unspoken bonds of friendship between men. No better is this exemplified that the misfit characters of Jay and Silent Bob, who wreak havoc in many of his films. Smith brings those same sensibilities to bear on the action comedy Cop Out, about a pair of NYPD officers on the trail of a stolen baseball card.
Kevin Smith, Director of Clerks, Chasing Amy and universally loved for his role as Silent Bob in various teen flicks, has been ejected from a Southwest Airlines flight for being too fat. The director was deemed a ‘safety risk’ and was forced to book another flight after being told that he was not allowed to board the plane he had booked a ticket on.
