Kevin Smith has joined forces with newcomer Chris Hemsworth as the Avengers star takes on the Jay and Silent Bob reboot.

Smith, who starred as Silent Bob in the cult 90s movies including Clerks and Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back, posted an adorable snap with his pal, writing a caption about the actor being such a newcomer to the industry.

Sometimes I like to highlight unknown actors in our industry – and I think *this* fresh face from young Hollywood might soon find fame and fortune on the Silver Screen! Kevin wrote.

Hes newcomer @chrishemsworth and Im predicting right here that Chris is gonna take Tinsel Town by storm one day!

The boy is like a god who thundered down from another universe! But its not some kinda dark world because this guy is no black hat – hes an artistic avenger whos just looking to book his first gig on the way to his ultimate endgame: a S.A.G. card!

He went on: Hes a killer comedic actor but I keep telling him that the *real* moneys in @marvelstudios movies. In a just world, hed get to at least screen test for them.

The 48-year-old added: Regardless, Ill keep you posted on Chris Hollywood progress. He should go far, because Chris is a super nice charmer whos crazy talented and incredibly generous with his time.

If you can get past the guys unorthodox looks, youll find a whole Hems worth of raw, untapped talent!

Were sold.

More: Chris Hemsworth

Meanwhile, the Marvel actor, who recently revealed hes not into the idea of saying goodbye to his character Thor, shared a string of similar photos, dubbing Kevin the man, the myth, the legend.

Details surrounding the reboot are pretty scarce, although Kevin has previously compared it to the original, saying that its literally the same f***ing movie all over again.

Sounds promising.

Mark Medoff, who won a Tony Award for writing Children of a Lesser God and earned an Oscar nom for its movie adaptation, died Tuesday at Mesilla Valley Hospice in Las Cruces, NM. He was 79.

Children of a Lesser God won the 1980 Tony for Best Play and ran for more than two years and 880 performances at Broadways Longacre Theatre. The show about a hearing speech teacher at a school for the deaf who falls for a deaf custodian was turned into a 1986 feature directed by Randa Haines. The film starred William Hurt and Marlee Matlin, who won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for the role. Hurt and supporting actress Piper Laurie also scored Oscar noms, and the film was up for Best Picture but lost to Platoon.

Children of a Lesser God, 1986

A revival of Children of a Lesser God played on the Main Stem for six weeks last year. Medoff also penned Prymate, which had a brief Broadway run in 2004.

Medoffs other feature writing credits include The Outright Winner (2016), City of Joy (1992), Claras Heart (1988), Good Guys Wear Black (1978) and the 1979 adaptation of When You Comin Back, Red Ryder? — which was based on his play that won him the 1974 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding New Playwright.

Born on March 18, 1940, in Mount Carmel, IL, Medoff also had roles in more than a half-dozen films, including his penned pics Claras Heart, Red Ryder? and Santa Fe (1997). He also produced a handful of features.

His final film is Walking with Herb, a faith-based drama starring Edward James Olmos, George Lopez and Mary McDonnell. Medoff wroRead More – Source
