Let’s be honest. When you think of cameos in movies today, you think of Stan Lee. The Marvel legend obviously didn’t invent the cameo, but he’s made it his own over the past twenty years in everything from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the Spider-Man films, X-Men films and even Mallrats. That last one, more of an extended cameo, was directed by Kevin Smith who himself has had a good run with cameos both as an actor and director.
So what better combo than Lee and Smith to do a quick short called Cameo School which itself features some funny cameos? Smith directed Lee, who stars, but Smith also appears. Check it out below. Read More »

Kevin Smith‘s career changing movie Red State could have gone in a very different direction. Smith has gone on the record saying that he had a different ending of the film in mind when he first wrote the script. However, he they realized the budget was only $4 million, he scrapped the bigger ending in favor of something smaller and quieter.
In other interviews, Smith has said what he wanted that ending to be but – in case you haven’t read it – I won’t say it here. Especially because Smith has proved Entertainment Weekly with an animated version of this original vision and it’s absolutely insane, especially if you don’t know what’s coming.
