    Hmm. I was a massive View Askew fan...until Clerks 2 happened. That movie single-handedly killed my interest in anything Kevin has done since.

    "Clerks" will always remain my favorite but, I enjoyed C2 very much. I'm fairly big fan.I even enjoyed Red State (Yoga Hosers, not so much.) Looking forward to Jay & Silent Bob Reboot and positively giddy for this release too.

    A classic case of "Ah well best stick to what I do best!"

    No harm in that I may add.

    Hard to say exactly from that selfie but it looks like Kevin's dumped a lot of weight. I sure hope so.

    If they go forward with this, they should give the film title a good sub-title EG "Clerks III: the mop up"

    Kevin looks horrible. I know he was way overweight, but yikes.

    AKA You guessed it… Frank Stallone.

    I was a huge fan in my teens and early twenties. 20 years ago, I was a regular poster on the old View Askew WWWBoard, where I formed friendships that continue to this day.

    I liked Clerks II; I even liked Jersey Girl and Red State. What killed my interest in Kevin’s work was the weird horror movies he a few years ago. I’ll be back for Reboot, though, and look forward to Clerks III.

    It’s great that Kevin has buried the hatchet with Ben Affleck, Bruce Willis and Jeff Anderson in the past few months.

    I could always 'take-or-leave' his movies.....
    HIS PODCASTS are what made me a fan...
    I was 'on board' when he 'opened-his-heart' (bad-joke intended) about the failure of "Zach & Miri Make A Porno", and started smoking pot.

    I really liked Clerks. And I thought Clerks 2 was pretty funny... but I can recognize it sort of sucked.

    Looks like Kev is out of juice. Let him do it. There will be some sort of audience for this.

    I liked Clerks 2 a lot. Its the only post-Dogma Smith movie I give a fig about. I'm seeing Jay and Bob Reboot next Feb with Jay and Kevin.

    Props to him for losing as much weight as he did. But he just looks really weird now.

    He "looks weird" because we're so used to Fat Kevin.

    Objectively, the man in the pic on the right looks better than the man in the pic on the left.

    He just looks off because we're used to the morbidly obese one...

    I'm with you - sort of. I liked "Zach and Miri" but the rest has been pretty bad.

    "Clerks 2" had its moments but felt like more of a cop out than "Cop Out".

    I suspect that compared to "C3" or the new J&SB movie, though, "C2" will look like a classic! I have zero faith in Smith to make anything even mediocre, much less good...

    I agree. Smith's movies have been downright terrible of late. The last one I saw that I vaguely liked was "Red State" and I recognize that's a film with quite a few problems.

    As far as Smith's look these days, I realize he had to lose weight because of his health, but I think he went too far. He looks really old now.

    It's the extra skin that is making him appear that way. It's a side effect from living obese for decades.

    I think he looks a little like RDJ!

    Yes, everyone I know who has lost a significant amount of weight has that old, shriveled look. That's why I'm staying fat and beautiful! Ha Ha...

    Kind of funny in that article that one of the Doctors doing his Stent said Kevin was really chatty. Silent Bob Chatty?

    Saw he first did the Plant Based Diet, but could not stick with it like Penn Gillette has been on to lose his weight. That Diet would be tough for me to follow strictly, as my idea of a Plant Based Diet is Planting myself in front of a Rack of BBQ Ribs, Steak or Prime Rib at least once every 2 weeks. I eat a Burger about once every 3-4 weeks. I mostly eat Chicken and Fish a few times per week, so while I can limit Red Meat to every few weeks, it would be hard to give up all Meat and Fish.

    That being said, I am a Science Person, and have found the Science is there to show the benefits of a Plant Based Diet on preventing Cardiovascular Disease(and think also Cancer). I had read about Dean Ornish and his Book on Healthy Eating, but just did not seem possible to enjoy a Strictly Plant Based Diet.

    I always say that Sugar is the worst thing one can consume, but have not found a way to give up Chocolate yet, as I am addicted to it. I try to follow a Mediterranean Diet over all which is mostly Chicken and Fish, as a small portion of Dinner and eat a higher amount of Vegetables, as just want to build better Eating Habits early on before reaching an older age, but realize my Chocolate Addiction overrides the benefit of that Diet.

    The key is to eat in a way that prevents inflammation, as that is the key factor if Heart Disease and Cancer(besides Genetic Predisposition and Environmental Factors that might be based on where one lives and external exposure things that can cause Cancer).

    Anyways, happy to see Kevin being able to lose weight and assume he also is doing some Walking or other Aerobic Exercise.

    I saw Kevin and Jason on Stephen Colbert last night and they discussed their 3rd Jay & Silent Bob Movie(Reboot). Kevin mentioned that they are attending screenings at over 40 Cities and will meet Audience Members after each Screening. Does anyone have a link to their Schedule of Cities and Theaters for this event? Awesome Idea. Just wish they would bring Morris Day & The Time on these Screenings.
