Mewes and I finished our on-camera work as Jay and Silent Bob today (ironically enough, we wrapped the movie with one of the first scenes in the flick). Jay did a stellar job and finished up strong (and bare ass). Good stuff all around.
Shooting in Leonardo again was a trip. Mosier and I realized that exactly eight years ago (to the day, even), we were shooting 'Clerks' there. Sad, isn't it? We haven't really made much progress (although I've progressed a few sizes in jeans).
But it was a poignant couple of days. As always, the folks of Leonardo were gracious and sweet. Saw many of them going into and out of the store who I'd waited on back in the register-jockeying days. This affored us an unscheduled but amusing cameo in the way of Thomas, the guy who played the Roofer with whom Dante and Randal have the Death Star convo in 'Clerks'. He was stopping in to get milk, and wound up reprising his role (though with no dialogue). In a movie full of appearances from incredibly famous celebrities, his walk-on may be my fave - due to the subtle but full-circle nature of the cameo.
Wrapped Lee out the other day, and was taken for another trip down memory lane by his Brodie performance. As usual, Lee was phenomenal. Wait 'til you see/hear Brodie's latest quirk ("And with that, we cue the music...").
One more day (a night, actually) of shooting, and then the whole enchilada's wrapped as well. Fittingly, the scene features Dante and Randal. We get to end the cinematic tales of the Askewniverse with the two cats we started telling said tales with in the first place. Something nice about that.
