Re: Kevin Smith on 'Star Trek XI'
I would have never guessed Kevin Smith had inside info to Star Trek.
Kevin is a big Heroes fan, and was set to direct the spinoff pilot untill that show got shelved by the writers strike. Quinto is on Heroes. The connection is there for him to have an iggie into what's been going on.
Um, there's also the fact that...
He's close friends with Ben Affleck, who's now married to Jennifer Gardner (who he also did the movie Catch & Release
in 2006 with) who is friends with J.J. and they hang in the same circles. He did also did a Dinner for Five
with J.J. when Smith guest hosted and they seemed to of known each other already.
