Kevin Smith



Kevin Patrick Smith (born August 2, 1970) is an American screenwriter, film director and the founder of View Askew Productions. He is also known as a comic book writer and actor. Smith's films are often set in his home state of New Jersey and are filled with pop culture references, particularly to comic books and the Star Wars movies. They often take place in the View Askewniverse and feature references to a shared canon.

Smith was born in Red Bank, New Jersey to Grace and Donald Smith. He has an older sister, Virginia, and an older brother, Donald. Smith was raised in the Catholic religion and attended Henry Hudson Regional High School in Highlands, The New School for Social Research New York and the Vancouver Film School, he majored in film but dropped out halfway through his studies. Smith is married to Jennifer Schwalbach Smith, with whom he has a daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, born in 1999. He named his daughter after the character from Batman: The Animated Series. Smith occasionally goes to Roman Catholic mass. He never smoked until his debut film, Clerks where he used the cigarettes as a prop, but never actually inhaled. Afterwards, he became a two-pack-a-day smoker.

Smith's films often feature the same actors, including Jason Lee, Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams (for whom he wrote the lead role in Chasing Amy), Jason Mewes, and Matt Damon. Other well-known performers featured in more than one Smith film include Chris Rock, Shannen Doherty, George Carlin, Ethan Suplee, Joe Quesada, Jason Biggs and Alanis Morissette. Some lesser known regulars in Smith's films include Walt Flanagan, Bryan Johnson, Scott Mosier, Ernest O'Donnell, John Willyung, Carmen Lee, Jeff Anderson, Brian O'Halloran, Dwight Ewell, Kimberly Loughran, Casey Affleck and Vincent Pereira. Also, he casts himself in nearly all of his movies (a notable exception being Jersey Girl).

A short that was made by both Smith & Scott Mosier while attending the Vancouver Film School. It was to be a documentary about a locally-renowned transvestite singer, but they lost contact with her after only 1 day of shooting. Instead of scrapping the entire project, they continued by changing the subject matter- a documentary about a documentary that failed. The film featured several interviews with "crew members" who discussed the utter disorganization of the filmmakers and the like.

Clerks debuted at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival where it saw almost no audience during the first few days. More people started seeing the movie as days went on and it eventually got the attention of executives at Miramax. Harvey Weinstein attended one of the screenings but left after 15 minutes. After a lot of persuasion he attended another screening. He was again ready to walk out but was told to stay until he heard: "37". This time he stayed and thoroughly enjoyed the movie and gave his people the go-ahead to purchase the movie. It was bought by Miramax for $227,000 US. Initially, the film was given an NC-17 rating, based exclusively on its profanity. Because the NC-17 rating is thought to be hurtful to a movie's box office performance, Miramax and Smith entered into a court battle with the Motion Picture Association of America, and eventually succeeded in getting the film's rating lowered to an R. The film became a success on the growing independent film circuit, was shown during non-concert hours at Woodstock 1994, and eventually earned a limited national release near the end of 1994. In ensuing years, it became a far-reaching inspiration for budding directors, proving that it was possible to make a movie for $27,000 and have it see wide successful release.

In 1995, Smith wrote and directed Mallrats, the second film in the so-called "Jersey Trilogy". Mallrats chronicles the romantic difficulties of two slackers (played by Jason Lee and Jeremy London) who spend their days hanging around a shopping mall. The film also featured a post-Beverly Hills 90210 Shannen Doherty and a pre-fame Ben Affleck. A more typical Hollywood comedy than Clerks, Mallrats was a failure with critics as well as at the box office, and Smith later found himself haunted by a tongue-in-cheek apology he made at the 1995 Independent Spirit Awards. Universal had said that they wanted it to be a "smart Porky's." The movie found its audience later on VHS and especially on DVD. Many of Smith's fans state that Mallrats was the first Smith picture they saw. Smith later remarked in his question and answer session, An Evening with Kevin Smith, that Universal executives pressured him to cut scenes, including a scene where Silent Bob (Smith himself) masturbates while watching Gwen (played by Joey Lauren Adams) changing in a dressing room, and he ejaculates over the partition into her hair. According to the scene, her hair would be altered as a result (as famously seen two years later in There's Something About Mary), but the executives claimed that the gross-out factor was too disgusting to be comedic. According to Kevin Smith, Mallrats takes place on a Friday (Clerks takes place on Saturday). Also to mention that the unseen character Julie Dwyer died on a Thursday (as said in Clerks) at the YWCA (in this film it's last night).

For his next movie, Chasing Amy, Smith for the first time tried to do the negotiations about the financing by himself. This resulted in a budget of $250,000 for Chasing Amy, a love story starring Ben Affleck, Jason Lee and Joey Lauren Adams. Although the movie was a financial success considering the small budget, it proved to be very hard for Kevin Smith's Producer Scott Mosier who had worked with Smith since Clerks.

In 1999, Smith released his most controversial film to date, "Dogma", the story of two angels who try to get back into Heaven. This time Kevin Smith enlisted more well-known actors and devoted more screen time to himself and Jason Mewes. Mewes and Smith had small roles in every one of his own films so far. Even though Dogma had a bigger budget, the film still had some trouble being released - some Catholic groups tried to boycott the movie and his production company received a lot of hate mail and a few death threats. Eventually the movie was released by Lionsgate instead of the original distributor Miramax. Smith stated on An Evening With Kevin Smith, that he joined in on protests along with signs as a goof and was subsequently interviewed by a news crew, telling the crew his name was "Bryan Johnson", which was actually the name of the friend of his, with whom he attended the protest.

In 2001, Smith released Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and announced that it would be the last film set in the View Askewniverse. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation criticized the movie arguing that it contained homophobic humor. Smith responded by saying that the Jay and Silent Bob characters were satire of young male "idiots", and at GLAAD's suggestion, made a donation to the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

A short film written, directed and produced by Kevin Smith for The Tonight Show. This stars Dante (Brian O'Halloran) and Randal (Jeff Anderson) from the original Clerks. Dante and Randal are stuck in a traffic jam and begin talking about a flying car, and to what lengths Dante would go in order to be the first person alive to receive one and revolutionize world travel.

In 2004, Smith released Jersey Girl, a film about a man struggling to raise his daughter after the death of his wife. It was the first of Kevin's feature films to have no continuity with the "View Askewniverse" series. George Carlin and Liv Tyler starred alongside Affleck in the comedic drama. The film opened to mixed reviews, lackluster box office. Smith referred to the film as his "fatherhood movie", and found bittersweet comfort that he was able to share the film with his own father just before his death.

Clerks II revisited View Askewniverse characters Dante and Randal and was set ten years after the events of Clerks. Clerks II is different from its predecessor in the following regards: the visual style is desaturated but has color, the comments in the dialogue are short and more concise, and the film is centered more around the development of the story. The credits for this film ended with a line that read, "Jay and Silent Bob might return someday. Right now, they're taking it easy".

Other projects in the works include Clerks: Sell Out, the feature-length animated film done in the Clerks: The Animated Series style. Next up for him is a new, non-Askewniverse comedy that he is apparently in the process of writing now. Smith announced at the Wizard World convention that his next project would be a horror movie as he stated that he wanted to move in a different direction. He plans to shoot the horror movie back-to-back with the as yet untitled comedy.

Another planned project for Smith is Ranger Danger and the Danger Rangers. He has described the project as "My stab at a comic-book/sci-fi movie. It's in the vein of Flash Gordon, something I've noodled with a couple of years. Now I feel we are mature enough filmmakers to tackle it".

As an actor, Smith is known for his role as Silent Bob in Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back, Clerks II, and as a cameo in the horror movie, Scream 3, Jay and Silent Bob Do Degrassi(also as a fictional version of himself).

Smith also appeared in a cameo role as Jack Kirby in the film Daredevil, and starred in friend and fellow writer-director Richard Kelly's Southland Tales, to be released in 2007, in which he plays the legless conspiracy theorist General Simon Theory. He has also done small roles of little significance on television, such as Law and Order, Veronica Mars and Yes, Dear. Recently, he worked on the film Catch and Release, co-starring Jennifer Garner for which he received good reviews and is also the voice of Moose in the North American version of the CGI children's film Doogal. Smith will soon be appearing as the voice of a Greasy Chef in the forthcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and also has a small part in Live Free or Die Hard. He also played a role in the View Askew movies Vulgar and Now You Know.

A life-long comic book fan, Smith's early forays into comic books dealt with previously established View Askew characters, and were published by Oni Press. He wrote a short Jay and Silent Bob story about Walt Flanagan's dog in Oni Double Feature #1, and followed it with a Bluntman and Chronic story in Oni Double Feature #12.

He followed these with a series of Clerks comics. The first was simply Clerks: The Comic Book, which told of Randal's attempts to corner the market on Star Wars toys. The second was Clerks: Holiday Special, where Dante and Randal discover that Santa Claus lives in an apartment between the Quick Stop and RST Video. Third was Clerks: The Lost Scene, showing what happened inside Poston's Funeral Parlor. (This issue was later animated and included as an extra on the 10th Anniversary Clerks DVD.) These stories have been collected in the forthcoming trade Tales From the Clerks, which also includes a new story.

Smith has written a comic mini-series Chasing Dogma, which tells the story of Jay and Silent Bob between the films Chasing Amy and Dogma. He has also written the trade paperback Bluntman and Chronic, published by Image, which purports to be a collection of the three issues of the series done by Holden McNeil and Banky Edwards (of Chasing Amy). It includes a color reprinting of the story from Oni Double Feature #12, purported to be an early appearance by McNeil and Edwards.

Smith makes occasional mention of his desire to do a comic miniseries about Bartleby and Loki (from Dogma), as well as a comic-only sequel to Mallrats called Mallrats 2: Die Hard in a Mall. In 1999, he won a Harvey Award, for Best New Talent in comic books.

Smith began a lengthy association with Marvel Comics in 1999 with Smith taking over as the writer of the Marvel Comic Daredevil. His run, which lasted eight issues, was plagued by delays (which artist Joe Quesada publicly took responsibility for, though it was a sign of things to come). His tenure on Daredevil was a commercial hit for Marvel, but was controversial among Daredevil fans. Some fans accused Smith of misogyny in his handling of Karen Page's death, and others objected to the killing of long-time Spiderman foe Mysterio in a non-Spiderman series. John Byrne (then-current writer on one of the Spider-Man titles) would later bring the character back within a few months, with a different identity.

Kevin Smith followed this by jumping to DC Comics, producing a 15 issue run on Green Arrow that saw the return of Ollie Queen from the dead and the introduction of Mia Dearden, a teenage girl who would become Speedy after Smith's run had ended. Unlike his Daredevil run, Smith's Green Arrow run was a huge critical success. After his initial "rebirth" storyline Quiver, there was also a short arc featuring a new villain.

Smith returned to Marvel for two mini-series: Spider-Man/Black Cat: The Evil That Men Do and Daredevil/Bullseye: The Target. The former is six issues long; the first three issues were published, followed by a delay of three years before the final three. It deals with Black Cat, about having been raped and trying to help another rape survivor come to terms with it. The latter is supposed to be four issues although only one issue was published, in January of 2003. As of July, 2006, there has been no word when this series will be completed.

He was announced as the writer of an ongoing Black Cat series and Amazing Spider-Man' in early to mid-2002. However, due to the fatal delays on Evil That Men Do and The Target, the plan was switched so that Smith would start a third Spider-Man title (originally planned for then-ASM writer J. Michael Straczynski), and even this plan was eventually abandoned and the title (by then known as Marvel Knights Spider-Man) launched, in 2004, by Mark Millar instead. The Black Cat series was quietly "forgotten", with no official announcement ever made on its' abandonment.

Smith was co-executive producer for the 1997 movie Good Will Hunting, assisting friends Matt Damon and Ben Affleck with making and marketing their film. After Damon and Affleck received Academy Awards for their screenplay, critics alleged that Smith himself was responsible for the script, a rumor which Smith vehemently denies. In 1997, Smith was hired by New Line to rewrite Overnight Delivery (1998) which was expected to be a blockbuster teen movie. Smith's then-girlfriend Joey Lauren Adams almost took the role of Ivy in the movie instead of the female lead in Chasing Amy. Eventually she lost out to Reese Witherspoon, and Overnight Delivery was quietly released directly to video. Kevin Smith's involvement with the film was only revealed when he wrote about his experience with it in an online column.

For a time Smith was working on a script for a Superman movie. He did a couple of drafts but it was dropped when Tim Burton was hired to direct. Burton brought his own people to work on the project. Smith still sees the whole experience on working on the Superman project as a positive one though, since, in his own words he was well paid and it was a lot of fun. In the end neither Smith's nor Burton's vision for Superman were filmed. Years later Smith noted the similarity between a scene in one of his comics and a scene in Burton's remake of Planet of the Apes. As Smith explained in a question and answer session featured on An Evening with Kevin Smith, he had jokingly accused Burton of stealing his idea, a comment that ended up being reported in the media as a serious accusation. Burton issued a stern denial, noting that "Anybody who knows me knows I would never read a comic book. And I certainly would never read anything written by Kevin Smith." Smith's only response to Burton's comments was, "Which I guess explains Batman."

Smith has been known to do script rewrites, including a draft of the movie Coyote Ugly though, according to Smith, only one line of dialogue from his draft made it to the final film. Not long after Clerks, Smith pitched an idea called "Bussing" about bus boys, described as "Clerks in a restaurant". This idea seems to have been reborn into the 2005 movie Waiting... by writer/director Rob McKittrick who credits Smith for the opportunities he has now. Smith also wrote a screenplay for a film version of The Six Million Dollar Man.

In 2002, Smith pressed his bosses at Miramax to pick up the rights to Gregory McDonald's Fletch series. Smith hoped to helm a movie adaptation of Fletch Won, with the intention of making it more faithful to the original novel than the popular Chevy Chase films. Smith hoped to cast View Askew regular Jason Lee in the title role but was nixed by Bob and Harvey Weinstein. Smith spoke to Zach Braff about the possibility of taking the role, which he eventually accepted. In October 2005, Smith abandoned the project.

Smith has written a screenplay for a new film version of The Green Hornet. The Miramax head Harvey Weinstein at the time attempted to draft Smith to direct the film, but Smith eventually backed out, noting that his directing style wasn't really "visual" enough to pull off a big-budget action movie.

Smith released his first book, Silent Bob Speaks, a collection of essays dissecting pop culture, the movie-making business, and Smith's personal life. The book was a success, selling out its first printing.

In 2000, Smith and Mosier teamed up with television writer David Mandel (Seinfeld and SNL) to develop an animated television show based on Clerks. This was an idea Smith had been kicking around since the production of Mallrats and, after pitching it to nearly every major television network, ABC TV picked it up for airing in March 2000.

After being delayed to May, Clerks: The Animated Series aired only two episodes, out of order, before being cancelled as a result of poor ratings. The six produced episodes were released on DVD in 2001, marking one of the first occasions in which a very short-lived TV series found success in the DVD format. Smith has also cameoed in the second season premiere of the sitcom Joey, where he played himself, on an episode of Law & Order in 2000 (episode "Black, White and Blue" playing Tony's wife's nephew), Duck Dodgers (2003 as Hal Jordan, voice only) and Yes, Dear (2004, as himself and Silent Bob). Smith has also created and appeared in several short "Roadside Attractions" segments for The Tonight Show, detailing trips to random locations around the country. These segments are collected on the Jersey Girl DVD. Smith also appeared in the second episode of season two of Veronica Mars, playing, appropriately, a store clerk. He stated on his webpage that Veronica Mars is some of the best television work ever produced.

From July 2006 on, he has guest reviewed on Ebert & Roeper 3 times, in place of the ailing Roger Ebert. These spots have been notable for the arguments between Smith and Roeper over certain films, with Smith often citing Roeper's poor review of Jersey Girl (2004 film) to discredit his review of the film at hand. On his most recent appearance Smith compared Craig Brewer's Black Snake Moan to the works of William Faulkner.

In early 2005, Smith appeared in three episodes of the Canadian-made Degrassi: The Next Generation television show. In the episodes, Smith, portraying himself, visited the school to work on the (fictional) film Jay and Silent Bob Go Canadian, Eh!. Smith wrote all his dialogue for the shows he appeared in. He also appeared in 2 more episodes later in the same season, when he returned to Degrassi for the movie release of Jay and Silent Bob Go Canadian, Eh!

In addition to appearing on Degrassi: The Next Generation, Kevin Smith is an avid fan of the original Degrassi series, Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High and references to the original are present in some of his early films.

Smith owns and operates Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash in Red Bank, New Jersey, a comic book store largely dedicated to merchandise related to his films. The current location is its second. The store was first located on Monmouth St; Kevin Smith bragged on "Howard Stern" that he made a lot of money selling that location and moving to a defunct ice cream parlor on Broad St. A second Secret Stash in the Westwood section of Los Angeles was opened in September 2004.

Smith has accepted a role in an upcoming Showtime television series pilot, "Manchild". The pilot will be filmed in December of 2006. Smith will play the role of Paul, a cynical husband. Smith explains why he took the role not only as a side job in addition to directing, but to learn more about acting.

According to NewsAskew.com and Kevin Smith himself, Smith may direct the pilot for a show called 'Reaper'. Tv.com's summary of the show is 'A twenty-something slacker finally scores a job as the devil's bounty hunter.' The note on NewsAskew from Smith says that; if the if t's are dotted and i's are crossed properly, he (Smith) will direct the pilot for 'Reaper'. He describes it as less Brimstone or Dead Like Me and more like Shaun of the Dead than anything else. He also goes on to say that the reason for the gig is that he has always wanted to direct something he didn't write, but never had an interest doing it on the big screen.

Has appeared in 2 Q&A documentaries titled An Evening With Kevin Smith and An Evening With Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder. The first one is a collection from gigs he did at American Colleges while the sequel was shot in Toronto and London.

In the third season of the HBO series Entourage, Michael Bay and Kevin Smith are directing and writing Aquaman 2. In reality, Smith wrote a script for the Superman Lives movie, while Bay was attached to direct a separate Superman movie. In Entourage, the characters awkwardly react with obvious disappointment at Smith's involvement. Smith has speculated that, that jab and another from season 2 may have been motivated by a book he was involved in, in 1995 where he criticized Rob Weiss and his movie Amongst Friends. In An Evening With Kevin Smith 2, Kevin said (in a roundabout way) that Michael Bay, "Makes him cry".

Smith is a fan of the Star Wars saga, and he frequently references Star Wars in his films. Additionally, he references Jaws, various comic book characters, and the sport of hockey in many of his works. Smith is not a fan of the The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. His views are expressed in the film Clerks II via Randal's dialogue, which is actually taken the Evening With 2 DVD.

In 1998 he directed best friend Jason Mewes as "Gary Lamb - Ground Activist" in a series of Nike commercials.

In Tony Hawk's Underground, Jason Mewes and Smith appear on the subway in the New York level as Jay & Silent Bob.

On the 5th February 2007 Smith and Scott Mosier began podcasting. Their podcast is named the SModcast (Smith-Mosier podcast), and is presented by Quick Stop entertainment. The first two were only available on the View Askew website, but by the third episode they were available on iTunes. The first was uploaded on the 5th of February 2007, the second on the 12th February 2007, the third on the 19th February 2007, the fourth on the 5th March 2007 and the fifth on the 12th March 2007. Smith used his myspace blog to promote it.

Kevin has also become well known for the relationship between himself and his fans, and states in the closing credits of Clerks II that he "spends way too much time on the internet."

Smith has an online blog that chronicles his life and work. Often brutally transperent his blog has exposed celeberities and the the inner workings of Hollywood.

He posts almost daily at his web board where he posts new information about his films, and interacts with the fans. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back's fictional website MoviePoopShoot.com became real in 2002, converting into an entertainment website covering movies, music, comics, toys, and video games. It is now Quick Stop Entertainment.

Since 1998, he has also held a private film festival called Vulgarthon in Red Bank, New Jersey (except in 2005 when it was held in Los Angeles) where fans can buy tickets to come out, see around five films, and meet many of the cast and crew. These events usually have fans flying in from different countries to attend. So far, there have been five Vulgarthons. The most recent, Vulgarthon 2006, featured screenings of the then-yet-to-be released Clerks II. Besides Smith himself, guests have included Brian O'Halloran, Jason Mewes, Ben Affleck, Jason Lee, Jeff Anderson, and Smith's wife Jennifer. As of 2006, he has an active Myspace account. (see links below)

In July 2005, at a Q & A in Vancouver, BC, Smith was awarded an honorary degree from the Vancouver Film School, where Smith was a student for four months before dropping out. On May 7, 2000, Illinois Wesleyan University awarded Smith an honorary doctorate; In May 2004, Montclair State University awarded Smith an honorary PhD. Smith also has a street named after him in Paulsboro, New Jersey (where he filmed "Jersey Girl"), "Kevin Smith Way". The road leads to Paulsboro High School, where Smith used the auditorium for several scenes in the movie.

Smith's longest Q&A session took place April 2, 2005 at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey The sold out event was over seven hours long, took place from 8PM through 3AM (which due to daylight savings, was actually 4AM). After he finished the Q&A, he opened up Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash just down the road to do a meet and greet with the numerous remaining audience members. The meet and greet ended around 6:30AM. Smith then hopped a plane and did another Q&A at the Raue Center For The Arts in Crystal Lake, Illinois that night. Planned for 2 hours, it lasted just over 5 hours, ending a little after 1AM Central time.

In August of 2006 Kevin Smith with the support of the Netflix Rolling Roadshow brought Clerks back to Red Bank, New Jersey. Originally slated to be at the "Quick Stop" in Leonardo, NJ the town board declined to grant the neccerary permits for the show to go as planned. The show went forward in the Red Bank Marine Park in Red Bank a few blocks from the Secret Stash comic book store, where an estimated 3000 people gathered for the event. An impromptu Q&A led off the event with Smith taking questions from the crowd while introducing members of the original cast of "Clerks" (most being friends and family from Red Bank). After the 90 minute Q&A the screen went up (the largest outdoor screen of its kind) and "Clerks" was officially back in Red Bank.
