Lee To Meet Smith’s COUPLE OF DICKS

jasonleeIt just doesn’t really feel like a Kevin Smith movie until he casts one of the group of actors who routinely show up in his comedies. And now his latest film, the crime comedy A Couple Of Dicks, really is starting to feel like a Kevin Smith the addition of actor Jason Lee to the cast.

Smith made the announcement yesterday during an appearance  on Kevin Pollack’s internet Chat Show. As Pollack is also a cast member in Dicks, Smith was probably an easy get for the show.

Smith gave Lee his first major acting role in the writer/director’s sophomore film Mallrats. Although the film received a poor reception from the critics, it has grown in estimation among Smith’s fans in large part due to Lee’s performance. Lee has appearaed in every Smith film ince, with the exception of last year’s Zack And Miri Make A Porno.

Dicks marks the first time that Smith is not directing from his own script, instead working from a screenplay by Robb and Marc Cullen. Currently shooting New York City, the film stars Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan as two veteran police detectives who, while tracking down a stolen 1952, mint-condition baseball card, become involved with a sport-memoribilia crazed crime boss. Adam Brody, Ana de la Reguera and Sean William Scott round out the cast.

A Couple Of Dicks is set to hit theaters on February 26, 2010.
