jay and silent bob strike back

~Guys, guuuys...

I’ve just learnt that Ben Affleck:

- has taught himself Arabic

- speaks Spanish and French too

- is so good at doing impressions that when he did one to Morgan Freeman, it was so accurate Freeman told him, “You ever do that again, I’ll kill you”

- won $356,000 by winning the California State Poker Championships in June 2004 - defeating some of the best poker players in the world in the process

- filmed four movies simultaneously in 2001: Pearl Harbor, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Changing Lanes, and The Sum of All Fears 

- began an intense two-hour a day workout regime the day after he was cast as Batman

- received a lifetime ban from playing blackjack at the Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Casino due to his ‘counting cards’ skills


Which tells me:

1. He’s fucking smart. I mean, he can pick up/learn languages pretty well (one of which is Arabic, Damian are you listening and he majored in Middle Eastern Affairs in college) and he is a boss at poker/blackjack.

2. He’s a workaholic. Look, I’ve never made a film (or even a short video) in my entire life, but he did 4 in one year at the same time and I bet he’s done similar workloads throughout his career. Also, see: two-hour a day workout regime for more evidence.

3. He can do good enough impressions to freak the fuck out of God™.


Ergo

= Ben Affleck is well on his way to being Ultimate Batman

All Hail the mighty Bat!

Jay And Silent Bob - Jay’s sexuality

“Kevin Smith has stated that he sees Jay as ambisexual: “Jay—who’s always talking about women—is a character a lot of young hetero guys identify with. But I think Jay’s really ambisexual. So it’s nice to throw them a curveball to open up their perspective a bit. If I can lead a few cats into being a bit more tolerant, I feel pretty good.”[2] In issue #2 of the Chasing Dogma comic series, Jay launches into a lengthy and thoroughly impassioned impromptu speech on gay rights and tolerance before he notices Silent Bob’s astonished expression and brushes the matter off. In Dogma, 13th Apostle Rufus asserts that Jay masturbates more than anyone else, and that he thinks about men when doing so; in response to Silent Bob’s shocked expression, Jay claims merely that he does not ‘always’ think of men during self-stimulation. Moreover, in the prison scene in Clerks II, Jay wants Dante and Randal to fellate each other in exchange for Silent Bob and him loaning them the money to reopen the Quick Stop and RST. He may say this merely to get Dante and Randal to humiliate themselves, but after Silent Bob’s disgusted look, he retracts the demand. In a cut version of the same scene, Silent Bob tells Jay that he is a deeply repressed gay man. - [source]
