Smokey Floyd - what a jerk! I love it!

Okay,I'm late with this. But Jason Lee was soooooo funny as obnoxious aging rock star Smokey Floyd on Greg Garcia's new show Raising Hope. And it wasn't just because of the outrageous makeup.

Good news if you missed it. Hulu has the full episode! Here you go:

Memphis Beat is Growing on Me

I have to admit, it took me a while to warm up to Memphis Beat. Maybe it's because I still miss My Name is Earl. Lee looks a lot hotter as Dwight Hendricks. But few shows have that quality MNIE had. Outrageous, hilarious, politically incorrect, yet pretty darned heartwarming by the end.

Well, I've finally gotten over it. Memphis Beat is a pretty cool show and Jason Lee is wonderful as the singing detective who won't let anyone mess with Memphis.

Over the past couple of years I've published a bunch of Lee clips here. But now that we have Dwight Hendricks, you've got hours of Lee vid available to you right here:

Full episodes of Memphis Beat on TNT

Meanwhile, I hope to find time to get back to my mission of creating a full vlog of Lee's roles. But I may not be able to find the time, so that oughta keep you all busy for a while. ;-)


P.S. I recommend the episode "One Night of Sin" which features Giovanni Ribisi.

Jason Lee's coming back to television!

Exciting news for Jason Lee fans this month. Lee is set to star in a new cop show, Delta Blues, playing a cop who lives with his mom and moonlights as an Elvis impersonator. George Clooney is executive producer. It's a cable show, so I may need to finally break down and invest in cable TV.

If that's not enough reason to get cable, Lee is also working on a live action skateboarding series for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.

And he's directing his first feature film, Get Back, about a couple of time travelers meeting John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1966 London. Sounds pretty wild.

Of course, we'll also be seeing Lee on the big screen in Alvin & the Chipmunks, Columbus Circle, and A Couple of Dicks.

And I thought I was going to miss Jason Lee when MNIE was canceled.

Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back

Probably Kevin Smith's silliest movie. Too bad there's so much EXTREMELY vulgar language or this one might be fun for kids.

Jason Lee and Ben Affleck both get dual roles. Why? Because Jay & Silent Bob were around for all the previous Kevin Smith movies, of course! Lee plays both Brodie Bruce (Mallrats) and Banky Edwards (Chasing Amy). Affleck plays Holden McNeil (Chasing Amy) and - who else? - Ben Affleck.

Got 15 seconds? Here's a cute vid of Brodie singing "Matt Matt Matt" with Jay & Silent Bob:

The trailer is pretty amusing too:

Vanilla Sky

Vanilla Sky is a 2001 movie starring Tom Cruise as a shallow man who learns how to live a better life the hard way. Jason Lee plays his best friend - and perhaps his only real friend - author Brian Shelby. Lee's part isn't very big, but it isn't small either. This was Lee's second film with director Cameron Crow (Almost Famous was the first).

Here's the trailer:

This is an odd film. Seems many people either love it or hate it. It's definitely interesting and, imho, worth watching.

Kevin Pollack Interviews Jason Lee for an Hour & Forty-Seven Minutes

Yeah, lots of Jason Lee without the mustache! Kevin asks Jason about his life and career, from how he got into skateboarding as a kids all the way up to the TV pilot Jason recently wrote. Yes! We need more series like My Name is Earl.

Here's the interview:

My Name is Earl Interview with Jason Lee

Because My Name is Earl is now in syndication, a local news station ( interviewed Jason Lee just a few days ago. It's a nice interview, and the station kindly included the code to embed the interview, so here it is:

I hope you enjoy it, as I did.
