Today in Clerks III news… Kevin Smith confirms he has included Elias in the script!
I think this is awesome. I loved the introduction of a 2nd generation clerk in Elias. It was tricky to bring in a new guy having such strong and classic characters as Dante and Randal around, but Elias was a great addition. Not only was he a hilarious character on the page, but Trevor Fehrman gave a pitch perfect performance. I can’t even tell you how much he cracks me up. He hasn’t done a movie in years, which is disappointing cause I think he showed such potential. Maybe this will mark a return to acting for him.
I just hope Elias is getting laid by now.
Still no word about the return of Becky (Rosario Dawson). I’m guessing it’s because Rosario hasn’t said yes yet. Hopefully she will come back too, because I don’t want to see Dante having more romantic issues. As entertaining as that can be, I want him to be with Becky!
Btw, I love that Kevin is slowly giving out little bits of information about Clerks III. Every time I check his Twitter I get all excited. This is the slow and perfect foreplay that comes before a really really good fuck.
