Kevin Smith Fulfills His Bruce Willis Dream, Appears in "Die Hard 4"

If you're MySpace friends with "Clerks" man Kevin Smith, you already know that the uber fanboy is a ginormous Bruce Willis fan (OMG he's online now!)...and now, the writer-director-turned-actor has announced he's fulfilled a lifelong dream by joining Bruno in the upcoming "Live Free or Die Hard."

Kevin Smith ("Mallrats," "Clerks") has parlayed his own admitted fandom into guest appearances in projects like "Daredevil" and "Veronica Mars," but now he's landed a big one: playing opposite Bruce "Die Hard" Willis in the upcoming fourth series installment, "Live Free or Die Hard."

Yes, he's a lucky guy. He knows it. And just like all you other regular schmoes on the internet, Smith has shared his elation in the best possible way: on MySpace.

From Kevin Smith's MySpace blog:
"'Mortal Thoughts', 'Billy Bathgate', 'Pulp Fiction', 'Nobody's Fool', '12 Monkeys', 'Armageddon', 'The Fifth Element', 'The Sixth Sense', 'Unbreakable' -- I'd follow Willis' career anywhere (even to 'Hudson Hawk').

Last year, I was beside myself when they released 'The New Twilight Zone' on DVD, because it meant I could finally re-watch the Wes Craven directed segment entitled 'Shatterday' -- in which Bruce Willis, as Peter Jay Novins, accidentally dials his home phone number and hears an alternate version of himself answer.

This past summer, while in Cannes with 'Clerks II', I watched the daily festival coverage in French just to see the man arrive on the red carpet for the 'Over the Hedge' screening."



Smith in 2001's "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back"

"So last week, after I wrapped the 'Manchild' pilot (which went phenomenally), the very next morning, I reported to work on a flick that'd reveal a heretofore unrealized dream I'd unwittingly harbored since I first watched David Addison limbo in the Moonlighting Detective Agency offices, twenty years prior...

For five days, I acted opposite Bruce Willis in this summer's 'Live Free or Die Hard.'"

I've enjoyed Kevin Smith movies. But what really won me over was "An Evening With Kevin Smith" haven't seen Evening Harder yet but i'm looking forward to it.

Go Kevin!

My dream is to meet Bruce Willis and stab Kevin Smith in the eye with the Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back DVD. Not necessarily in that order.
