At 53 years old, Kevin Smith has this physical status:
New series "The Idol" follows Lily-Rose Depp as Jocelyn, a pop star getting ready to stage her comeback. If that sounds too basic, don't worry. The series follows Jocelyn as she gets wrapped up in a cult run by Tedros, played by The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye (and the series has had some real-life controversies, too). Jocelyn's story has some real-life analogues, though the fictional pop star isn't based on any one specific singer. And as viewers get to hear Jocelyn's music for the first time, they might wonder if that's really Depp singing in the show. Yes, Depp is providing Jocelyn's singing voice — and she was really nervous about it.
For her audition, Depp had to sing a cappella. "I thought, 'Here's where I don't get called back,'" she told W magazine in May. She sang a minute of the song "Fever." Still, she told the outlet she "never thought" she'd get the part because she knew "there would be many lovely ladies who are more musical than me."
Kevin Smith was in his feels watching Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck tie the knot!!
The director spoke to ET Canada on Tuesday about the big affair held in Riceboro, Georgia over the weekend — and while he kept tight-lipped about specific details out of privacy for the lovebirds, he couldn’t help but gush about the ceremony! Which also offered a real full circle moment for the men!!
I lost a hero today. We all did. The one true Batman - the voice I’ll always hear in my head whenever I read or write a Batman comic book - has passed. I’ll miss you forever, realkevinconroy6. You had us all from the first episodes of #batmantheanimatedseries with a voice so commanding yet so comforting as well. Yours was the soothing voice of a hero that no criminal would ever know; all the bad guys ever heard were the grunts you’d emit while beating them senseless. As a hardcore fan, naturally I sought out Kevin so I could work with him - so I got to make pretend with Batman in The jayandsilentbob Super Groovy Cartoon Movie, in the masters series, and even in live action films, with his cameo in yogahosers. And on an episode of Fat Man on Batman, Kevin reassured me I was doing the right thing with my career - in the Batman voice. We’d just been texting on October 16th about him doing a show with me at smodcastlecinemas in 2023 (where we were gonna watch/discuss his 5 favorite BTAS eps). I ended the exchange with a ❤️ - because I absolutely loved #kevinconroy. I was lucky to have him as my Batman for so long; I was luckier to have known him at all. Thank you, Kevin, for defining the Dark Knight with your powerful pipes... and for being a friend. #KevinSmith

“What do we say to the god of death?” We say “Let’s swap hats!” Winter was coming hard last night at smodcastlecinemas when Bayonne boy and legendary author #georgerrmartin held court at the Castle for a sold out show! All Atlantic Highlanders in attendance were treated to two hours of stories about rearranging words for a living and telling the lies that tell the truths! The Garden Staters in the audience must’ve felt a pull of pride when they realized that the pop cultural phenomenon known as gameofthrones was dreamed up by a kid from Jersey! Afterwards, the Castle Keeper Crew took George for some food as a thanks for all the insight (and for signing 200 books)! Next up at Smodcastle: the first meeting of the Merry Marvel Movie Society a week from today when blackpanther premieres! On Black Friday, it’s the Zack and Miri-thon! And on November 30th, it’s the first annual smodcastle Film Gesb Come to the Castle, Kids - it’s a fucking funhouse for film! #KevinSmith #smodcastlecinemas #ganeofthrones #winteriscoming

The smodcastlecinemas lobby was beautified this morning when we hung a magnificent mural made by our resident Rembrandt, thedarknatereturns! Based on an idea by Castle Keeper odblues7, the piece is entitled “From Highlands to Hollywood” and features famous folks who hail from the great Garden State, as well as a collection of characters from across the #Askewniverse that I created! This lobby art is meant to inspire every kid (and grownup) who comes to watch a movie, reminding them that they’re seeing stars whose journey to their Hollywood dreams started in the same state! Nate understood the assignment exactly, outdoing himself with this marvelous masterpiece! Can you name every famous face he included? Thanks to #SignBrothers in Matawan for printing and hanging it all up today! And check out our lovely lobby art when you come see DOGMA with me this Tuesday night at an All Saints Day screening (tickets on sale at our website)! There’s always gonna be something worth seeing at #smodcastlecinemas - Where the Movies Come to Play! #KevinSmith #movies #multiplex #indietheater #atlantichighlands
