Check This Out: Kevin Smith's Full Casting Chart
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.
