Celebrity Birthday of the Day – August 2


Today’s celebrity is a no-brainer. Ok, that didn’t sound right. What I mean is the choice of today’s celebrity is a no-brainer. He, in fact, is an immensely intelligent guy who has given us some of the funniest films ever made. He is the king of the independent movie, the king of writing dialogue, and the king of speaking in silence. Of course, I am referring to Silent Bob himself: Mr. Kevin Smith! With his films Clerks, Clerks II, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Jersey Girl, and Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Kevin Smith has cemented his place in cinema. He is such a talented writer, a great film-maker, and a naturally comical man. If you have not had the pleasure of seeing it yet, I urge you to go out and find the An Evening With Kevin Smith series. It is amazing how captivating it is just watching him talk about his experiences in life. Sure, there was the recent Cop Out, which was pretty much a sell-out, as it was the first time he directed someone else’s script. But I think the guilt must have caught up with him, as he currently has three upcoming projects that he is writing and directing. Let’s hope he hasn’t lost his touch!
