Kevin Smith Says His Driver License Causes Sarcasm With Tsa Agents
Filmmaker Kevin Smith on Wednesday shared a funny story on Twitter about what happens to him sometimes at the airport when going through security.

"Naturally, I’m wearing one of my jerseys in my driver’s license photo," Smith began. "So whenever I have to produce identification at the airport, 4 times out of 10, the @Tsa agent will look at my license, then stare at me for a second or two...

Jay & Silent Bob Returning in New Vr Series From Kevin Smith

Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob will strike back with a new Vr series from Stx Entertainment. The stoner pals Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) first appeared in Smith’s debut feature Clerks.

Kevin Smith Refuses To Die Until He’s Seen Avengers: Infinity War

In a dramatic development far more compelling than any in his recent movies, Kevin Smith recently suffered a massive heart attack and nearly died. It turns out he was suffering from a 100% blockage of his Lad artery – known as ‘the Widowmaker’ – and if he had gone through with the show he was planning to do that evening he probably wouldn’t have made it.

After being pumped full of morphine and stabilized in a hospital, he’s currently in recovery, and took some time to post a video to his fans reflecting on his family, his personal life and his career, noting that after Dogma, God probably wasn’t going to step in and save him.

However, it turns out that there was one important factor that caused Smith to cling to life so fiercely: Avengers: Infinity War.

“This film is why I survived my heart attack,” he wrote. “I

10 Things You Didn’t Know about The Movie “Dogma”

Dogma is the kind of movie you might watch if you’re feeling like getting a dose of religion along with a big, healthy dose of sacrilege in the eyes of some people. Kevin Smith doesn’t pull a lot of punches in his movies on a regular basis but he went for the gold in this one when he came up with the idea of two exiled angels attempting to get back into heaven thanks to a loophole in church doctrine that would allow them to finally re-enter heaven. Of course as that would prove that God is fallible it would

Greta Gerwig Fangirls Over Justin Timberlake in Letter Asking to Use His Music in 'Lady Bird'

Greta Gerwig Fangirls Over Justin Timberlake in Letter Asking to Use His Music in 'Lady Bird'
For Greta Gerwig, flattery got her everywhere.

While on Late Night With Seth Meyers, the Lady Bird director presented the personal letters she wrote to Justin Timberlake, Alanis Morissette and Dave Matthews, asking permission to procure the rights to their hit songs.

The letters worked and Gerwig was able to have Timberlake's "Cry Me a River," Morissette's “Hand in My Pocket" and Dave Matthew Band's "Crash" play in her movie. Upon reading these notes to the musicians, it's clear why they agreed to let her use the tunes.

In her letter to Timberlake, the 34-year-old star begins, "I mean, what can I say? You’re Justin Timberlake.”

Gerwig goes on to note that she bought “both the CD and cassette” of the Justified album in 2003 because her "car didn’t have a CD player."

"You were the soundtrack to my adolescence," she gushes in her note to the 36-year-old pop star. "Between *Nsync and your
