Kevin Smith Says He Will Always 'Owe' Tiger Woods

Filed under: Tiger WoodsGolfBodyKevin Smith

Kevin Smith Tiger Woods

At least one person benefited from Tiger Woods' infidelity scandal.

Kevin Smith, who was booted off a Southwest plane last year for being "too fat" around the same time Tiger's scandal broke, says he will "always owe" the golfer for deflecting the controversy.

The American public could have been worrying about Kevin Smith's weight, but instead was immediately drawn to the sensational media coverage of Tiger's many mistresses.

Recently, Kevin looked back on the Southwest incident and shared how grateful he remains for Tiger Woods, saying:

"It was really bad [and] disconcerting. And that fake plastic heart in their logo, I thought was just absolute bull– and I lost all faith in humanity. I sat there for three days going, 'Life will never be the same, I'm humiliated, there's nowhere to go, nothing to do. I can't retain my cool, my credibility's shot. How am I supposed to be that Kevin Smith if I'm that dude who just got booted off the plane for being fat? Three days later Tiger Woods came out and was like, 'I cheated on my wife,' and nobody cared I was fat anymore. I love Tiger Woods! I don't care about golf, but I'll always owe him."

LOL! We're happy Tiger's troubles weren't in vain!

We're also happy that the plane incident may have served as a wake-up call for the movie director because he went on to lose 65 pounds! We hope he's able to keep it off too!

Kevin Smith Gets Help Distributing His Flick Red State

Filed under: Film Flickers

red-state-distribution-kevin-smith.jpg

How does that tail feel between your legs there, buddy!

You may not recall, but Kevin Smith pissed off a lot of people at Sundance this past year when he bought the distribution rights for his own movie Red State at the festival after staging a huge auction for it. He paid himself quiet handsomely too - a whole $20 bucks - and then ventured off on a tour with the film across the country. He made a cool million off the venture, but now he's in need of a bigger company with more pull to take his thriller to the next level.

That's why, today,

Comics fans! Kevin Smith Wants YOU!

Filed under: Reality TV

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?

Kevin Smith Is Bringing Red State To Europe!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz

kevin-smith-is-bringing-red-state-to-europe

Wow! He's pretty serious about doing his own thing with this one - and we really respect him for it!

After controversially buying the rights to distribute his new film, Red State, himself, Kevin Smith is now planning to push the sale of the director's foray into the horror genre onto foreign buyers!

He reportedly introduced a private screening to the European Film Market Thursday, and announced plans to expand upon what he's doing in the US - taking the movie around the country to select cities with Q&A appearances before its nationwide October 19th release - in countries worldwide!

He explained to potential buyers:

“(If) you guys pick it up, I will work with you. I can come over, we set up five or six key places, boom, sell those houses out, start people talking. Just fly me over. But case in point, I might not be allowed to fly on the plane sometimes, so you might have to boat me over. In the beginning, I was all heart and passion. These are made by someone who says I will kill or die to get a movie made. And after 10 years, I got pretty complacent and just made movies like other people would make. I used to make shit that nobody could make but me. I figure if I’m going out, I want to go out really fuckin’ strong. What you’re going to see is all passion and heart. Everything I put into this I put into the early flicks. I came back with a vengeance and put this together.”

Wow! Like we said earlier, this is a pretty ballsy move on his part!

But it seems as though he's really passionate about the project, so we hope his plan works out for him! And we imagine it will, if he's right about the quality of the movie!

We'd love to see Kevin Smith back to form with this one! It sounds as though it has a lot of potential!

Best of luck!

Kevin Smith's COMPLETE Sundance Rant

Filed under: Film Flickers

By now, you all know all about Kevin Smith's stunt at Sundance this past weekend. You know he bought his own film, Red State, for $20, even though he told people he was going to hold an "auction" for the rights to it.

But now, you can see the whole mess go down yourself! Someone who was in the audience had the foresight to tape Kevin's rather interesting rant.

Check out the video (above) to hear Kevin explain, in his own words, what buying this film for himself actually means.

We won't lie, it's loooooooong. Still, its worth the view to see how Kevin is trying to challenge the industry into a new wave of making and selling movies.

Kevin Smith Protests The Protesters At Sundance

Filed under: Film Flickers

Ha! Only Kevin Smith!

At the premiere of his new indie flick, Red State, director Kevin Smith was greeted by a group of pissed off protesters who didn't like the way Kevin portrayed some fanatical Christians in his movie.

So what did Kevin do? He joined them, of course!

Check out the video (above) and watch as Kevin comes fully prepared to protest the protesters!

Everything remained peaceful, thankfully. Don't really know if either sides point got across, but at least they spoke their minds!
