Well, actually, he wanted you last week when he put up a casting call for comic geeks to meet up with him at his The Secret Stash shop in Red Bank, N.J. … but maybe next time!
Kevin Smith is trying his hand at reality television, crafting a series based on the "comic book lifestyle" he's so masterfully captured in his scripted films. He plans to shoot for three-days starting next Tuesday (June 14th) with "real people who live and breathe the comic book lifestyle." The casting call notice, which was posted on his Facebook, added that participants in series "must be funny outgoing and have a knowledge and passion for comics, superheroes, movie memorabilia and everything that goes with it."
Kevin added on his Twitter last night that the series had already been picked up by AMC and pitched the show to his followers, while also asking comic collectors to come by the store during shooting. He tweeted:
“It’s Pawn Stars for Fanboys, and if you have something to sell/trade/or value, we want you to bring it to us!"
Well, you heard the man! Time to trek it to Jersey, fanboys! Light speed to
Endor the Garden State!
And those of U who opt out of the trip, still think U will watch the show?
