Kevin Smith

Sometimes you run across some totally cool stuff that just can't be passed up. Tonight I stumbled across an interesting casting chart based on Kevin Smith's movies, courtesy of the guys over at Film School Rejects. It lists every same actor in all of Kevin Smith's movies. This thing kicks some serious ass and is definitely worth checking out. At first I thought that solid line of X's going down was some actor, like Jason Mewes, but it turns out it's all from the same movie - Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, the pinnacle of Kevin Smith captured on film. And it turns out Jason Mewes is the top actor anyway, with Kevin Smith himself and Brian O'Halloran coming up second (all three of which were in Smith's first movie, Clerks). Kevin Smith haters need not click onwards.

This chart originally comes from Wikipedia, from the frequent casting section on Kevin Smith's page, so thank them for doing all the hard work. Obviously missing from the last film, which is what Smith is working on next, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, is the film's stars Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks. Hopefully we're going to see their faces a lot more, as they're both fine (especially Banks) actors.

As for Kevin Smith as a filmmaker, I completely admire the guy. He's smart and down to earth and knows how to make damn good movies. Clerks II was incredible and I even really liked the first few episodes of his TV show "Reaper". I can't wait to see what he does in Zack and Miri Make a Porno and I'm also looking forward to his horror movie, Red State, which comes after Zack and Miri. I'm not afraid to say that Kevin Smith is a staple of modern cinema and I'm glad to see him still pumping out quality films.

    i sir do agree......u can also put in the Evening with Kevin Smith series if u wanna get uber technical....
  • This is very cool, but I think a more interesting chart would be a character chart for Kevin Smith. Knowing Jason Lee was in movie x,y, and z is cool, but knowing if he was Banky or Brody, or both, is even cooler.

    I'm wondering about the criteria for inclusion. Where is Alanis Morissette (God in Dogma) or Jennifer Lopez (Gerturde Steiney in Jersey Girl). I know they small parts, but they were credited. There are probably others missing, but those are the ones that jumped out at me. Just curious.
  • Well correct me if I'm wrong, I don't believe Lopez and Morissette were in any other Smith movies. I think this chart is just for stars that starred multiple times in his films.

    Christine - I agree with it needing to be a "character list", so I edited it to show the names. You can view it here http://www.travisleecox.com/images/kevinsmith-castingchart-lg2.jpg

    kay - I think maybe the criteria is that the actor/actress had to appear in at least 2 of his movies
  • TCox - that's pretty awesome. The image is a little fuzzy through that link, but it's enough to see most of the names and if you're a fan you can probably guess at them well enough. Side note: "Reaper" isn't Kevin Smith's show - he directed the first episode.

    Christine - Sometimes Internet Explorer resizes it to fit on your screen. When it does that, it looks fuzzy. If you put your cursor over the bottom right corner of the image a box will appear. Click it, and you'll be able to view it full size. It looks fine then. If that doesn't work, just save it and open it up in whatever image viewer you have on your computer. If anyone wants to, feel free to upload it to Wikipedia. Just say "edited by TCox".

    oops! I forgot to add Jeff Anderson to Zack and Miri Make a Porno. I'll fix that soon.
  • TCox
