Kevin Smith Gets A Little Help From Jason Lee For His ‘Dicks’

By  · Published on June 29th, 2009

With all the talk about how Kevin Smith is finally directing someone else’s writing and how that might possibly be a 1) disaster or b) a resurgence of energy that shows another set of directing skills besides filming Jason Mewes saying “snootch to the nootch,” there’s been a surprising lack of talk surrounding his cast. Probably because he thinned out his regulars for Zack and Miri Make a Porno, although he kept in Jason Mewes thrusting into Katie Morgan while desperately resisting the urge to say “snootch to the nootch.”

Now, Smith is getting some familiar help from an old friend for his upcoming A Couple of Dicks. According to /film, Smith announced on Kevin Pollak’s Live Show that Jason Lee would be joining the cast.

Thankfully, someone out there is listening to Kevin Pollak.

This is no doubt great news for Smith fans who love seeing his same players in every film. I just watched Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back again the other day, and I’d almost forgotten how many cameos are in the damned thing. Hell, Jason Lee plays two characters. Right now, the cast for Dicks rounds out with Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Seann William Scott, Adam Brody and Kevin Pollak himself. There’s still the heavy possibility for cameos from Smith regulars. Jay as a drug-dealer anyone?

We’ll be on the lookout for announcements that Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams and George Carlin’s Ghost will be joining the cast.

What do you think?
