This Is the Kevin Smith You’re Looking For

Kevin Smith

Filmmaker, actor, speaker, author, comic book writer, comedian and podcaster Kevin Smith recently added another credit to his lengthy resumé: Stormtrooper. The news comes from the official Star Wars website, which recently revealed the names of a number of actors who provided lines for the film. According to the site, Smith voiced the Stormtrooper who memorably utters, “We have incoming at 28.6! Move!” Remember?

The news comes on the heels of the Sundance world premiere of the director’s Yoga Hosers. Twenty-two years after bursting on the scene with Clerks, Smith was back at the Egyptian Theater with his latest opus, which stars his and Johnny Depp’s daughters Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp. The film follows the two yoga-loving convenience store workers as they battle an ancient evil. Smith took to social media this week to reflect on his career; see his Facebook post below and catch a live taping of his Jay and Silent Bob Get Old podcast with Jason Mewes at Moontower this April.
