Smith directs Heroes

Jul. 31, 2007by: Omar Aviles

Rather than risk new episode withdrawal in us loyal viewers during the frustrating mid-season hiatus, the producers behind NBC's superhero drama phenom "Heroes" have opted to forego reruns and will instead air a spin-off titled "Heroes: Origins" in which we see how recently discovered super powers affect the lives of those outside the core cast we've come to love, hate and/or feel spectacularly indifferent about.

And if that wasn't enough to get you to tune in, none other than lovably plump uber-geek Kevin Smith will be directing the first episode so expect at least three STAR WARS references, and at least a passing reference to an unspeakably vile sex act. Check out video of the announcement below. The all new exciting and undoubtedly insipidly voice-over-ed second season of "Heroes" kicks off September 24th. Thanks to SchottGun for the heads up and linkage!

Extra Tidbit: Smith also directed the pilot episode of The CW's upcoming Ghost Rider-esque comedy "Reaper" and filmed a supporting role in a Showtime "Sex and the City with guys" comedy "Manchild" that, unfortunately, wasn't picked up.

Le sigh...

When can we throw Kevin Smith in the same "Early Ninties Generation X Hero" trash bin that we've thrown Pauly Shore? Honestly, what was the last movie this guy made that wasn't really shitty? Maybe Dogma, 8 years ago? Lets stop giving this guy second chances, I'm still holding a grudge from Jersey Girl, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and Clerks II.

I was there when he came! I'm actually looking forward to it because I'm a HEROES fan and it might be gay! XDD

well

Heroes is pretty good, cool to see a well known director show interest in it, though it would be way cooler to see Smith direct something like Lost which is essentially up the same alley as Heroes but way better. Oh well

Ughhh...

As much as I love Kevin Smith, I have to wonder what he's doing directing Heroes. That's gotta be (at least one of) the worst written shows on air.
