Director Kevin Smith has signed up to star in the US remake of hit British TV show MANCHILD, because he wants to become a better actor.
Smith has written, directed and starred in CLERKS, Mallrats, DOGMA and JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKES BACK - and now wants to turn his attention solely to portraying a cynical divorcee in the Showtime comedy.
He tells MTV, "It should be an interesting exercise that, if the show works as well as the script, will turn into a sweet side gig for me.
"At the very least, I'll learn a thing or two about acting; at the most, I'll have something to do four months out of every year."
Recovering drug addict Jason Mewes has heaped praise on Mallrats co-star Ben Affleck for helping him when he was at an all-time low.
Mewes called Affleck and asked for help when he was hooked on heroin back in 2000 and his movie star pal not only funded his recovery, he found him work.
The Jay And Silent Bob star, who has been clean and sober since his court-imposed rehab in 2001, says, "When I needed help he definitely helped me out. As a matter of fact, he paid for one of my rehabs."
Affleck and the pair's mutual pal Kevin Smith have continued to support Mewes in his recovery - Smith asked him to revive his Jay character for the upcoming CLERKS sequel and Affleck offered his pal work in his directorial debut GONE BABY GONE.
Ben Affleck is struggling with his directorial debut GONE, BABY, GONE so much he has called up old friend and film-maker Kevin Smith for advice.
Affleck has appeared in six Smith movies, including Chasing Amy, Jersey Girl and Mallrats, and the director was reportedly enraged when his former charge failed to cast him in Gone, Baby, Gone.
He says, "He started complaining, 'These actors won't do what I say. They make up their own lines, they don't follow the script.'
"Then he said, 'I feel your pain.'"
Film-maker Kevin Smith has blasted his friend Ben Affleck for failing to cast him in his directional debut GONE, BABY, GONE. Affleck is currently filming the mystery drama in his native Massachusetts and upset Smith when he didn't ask him to cameo in the movie. Affleck has appeared in six Smith movies, including Chasing Amy, Jersey Girl and Mallrats. Smith fumes, "I can't believe I cast the motherf**ker in six movies and he didn't have the f**king courtesy to be like, 'Do you want to show up in Gone, Baby, Gone?'" Smith is currently in Boston promoting his new film CLERKS II and in unsure whether or not to visit Affleck on set. He explains, "When you're on a movie set, unless you've got a job to do, you're just in the way. I would like to see him in his directorial element and give him s**t. But I don't want to distract him."
Internet reports suggest Zach Braff will play the title character in new movie FLETCH WON, but Smith insists he's still battling to reteam with one of his favourite actors.
Smith, who confirms he has met with Braff about the role, admits he hopes Lee's new TV show MY NAME IS EARL, which debuted in America last night (20SEP05), is a hit so producers will OK the actor as Fletch.
