Comic Book Men – Q&A With Ashley Greene

comic-book-men-episode-412-ashley-greene-325Comic Book Men guest star Ashley Greene talks about what it’s like to be Kevin Smith‘s assistant, her role on Jay and Silent Bob’s Top 5 Comics Countdown and how she got so good at closing deals.

Q: What’s the best part of being Kevin’s assistant?

A: I have the most fun when we’re filming. I really want to act; that’s been my dream ever since I was two and a half years old. When we’re on set, I see all these amazing actors and actresses perform and I get to see Kevin direct. Kevin’s sets are so amazing. People always walk out of there saying, “I’ve never been on such a cool set. I wish I could work with Kevin all the time.” He just sets such a good mood. Plus, he gave me a small scene in Yoga Hosers with his daughter, Harley Quinn, and Johnny Depp’s daughter and son. He’s definitely opening doors and being his assistant is definitely benefiting.

Q: What do you think is different about Kevin’s style that makes it much more relaxed?

A: Kevin always says he’s an editor, not a director, which we all know is absolutely crazy. But I think he means that instead of telling the actors what to do, he lets the actors make choices on their own. If he wants them to do something different, he’ll shout it out. But he lets the actors play and have fun, and he keeps his calm. Every time someone comes to set for the first time, he always announces it to the whole crew and makes everyone feel special and important.

Q: Why did Kevin ask you to spend a week across the country at the Secret Stash?

Comic Book Men – Q&A With Butch Patrick

comic-book-men-episode-411-butch-patrick-325 Comic Book Men guest star Butch Patrick talks about his favorite memories from playing Eddie Munster on The Munsters and interesting interactions with fans for over 50 years.

Q: In the episode, you mention that you had wanted to see the Stash for awhile. Did it live up to your expectations?

A: It was awesome, that was a real treat. I have a lot of friends in the area and I had heard about the store, so it was fun to finally see the legendary Secret Stash.

Q: In the episode, Walt confesses that he always wanted Eddie Munster to be his best friend. What is it like to hear that from strangers?

A: You know, I have run across that so many times. One of the most recurring things people say is “I used to run home from school because you were my imaginary family,” and “I wanted to be your best friend,” so Walt making that statement was cool. But I’ve actually heard it a bunch of times and it always makes me feel good.

Q: Do you have a TV character that you would like to be friends with?

Comic Book Men – Q&A With Neal Adams

comic-book-men-episode-410-neal-adams-325Comic Book Men guest star Neal Adams talks about his pioneering career in comics books and how the comic book industry has grown since the sixties.

Q: How did you get started drawing in comics?

A: The first work I ever did in comics was for Archie Comics, and I didn’t do that very long because I did other stuff. I became a commercial artist; I did comics for advertising and promotions, newspapers and magazines. Finally, I got a syndicated strip before I was 21 years old. I was doing very well and I had bypassed, in effect, comic books. But the strip came to an end because I took a stand against the writing, and then things slowed down in the commercial art field and I thought, well maybe I’ll just take a few weeks and try to do some comic books if they’re still around. So I went to DC Comics and got some work from some of the editors. Even though I had taken a different route, I found myself falling in love with the medium and I have since become, well God knows, a legend.

Q: What was the comic industry like when you first started working in the sixties?

Here, she talks about her time hanging out with Walt and the guys in the season premiere and what it’s like starring in her dad’s new film.

Q: You came to the Stash to prepare for your starring role in your dad’s new film, Yoga Hosers. What’s it about?

A: Yoga Hosers is about two Canadian high school girls who work in a convenience-store, and they are yoga fanatics. One day, they get invited to a senior party, but things end up going pretty differently than what they expected, when they are faced with these small monsters that they have to fight off.

Q: What was being on set like? Any highlights?

A: It was amazing. It was the best experience of my life, I miss it so much… I was able to work with amazing actors that I have looked up to for so long and that I’ve watched on my favorite TV shows and movies. Everybody who was there and on the crew was so sweet. I came to think of them all as family. Every day coming to set was a highlight.
