Kevin Smith rehearses a Porno

First Zack And Miri blog online

It hasn't started shooting yet - that's Wednesday - but Kevin Smith is so excited by the Zack And Miri Make A Porno shoot, he's decide to blog about the rehearsal process.

And one thing's for sure - he likes his leads (Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks): "I’ve got a guy whose inflections I wrote for/to reading the scenes and sounding like he’s not acting at all, as much as being the character. I’ve got a chick who could read the Bible aloud and make it seem charming. They’re naturals. They’re excellent. There’s no need to sweat inflection or do drills; they innately get what they’re reading and say it like I heard it in my head when I wrote it. And while they’re not off-book yet, I’ve learned a thing or two about actors and their lines-memorization abilities since that “Chasing Amy” rehearsal back in ‘96; I’m not sweating that kinda thing anymore."

Go to Silent Bob Speaks to read the lengthy blog - which sees Smith describe not just Porno's rehearsal period, but how the practice time panned out for every one of his flicks (including Chasing Amy). Good to have you back, Kev.
