And then I found this in an EW Popwatch entry:
In other TV news, it's getting harder to put off adding Showtime to your cable:
The premium cable network has also signed Kevin Smith to its pilot of the British import Manchild, a title I'd only heard of because it starred Buffy's Anthony Stewart Head on the BBC. Smith will be joined in his make-believe midlife crisis by Sex and the City's John Corbett and Rome's James Purefoy. (This is where I second my editor's first thoughts: "a) Can he act? There's a reason he played a guy named Silent Bob, and b) Smith's middle-aged enough to be facing a midlife crisis? Damn, we're old.")
Additional confirmation from Yahoo News: Director Kevin Smith acting in Showtime pilot.
I'll probably have to wait for the DVD, though, since I don't get Showtime and have no plans to sign up. (I have to draw the line somewhere.) Or maybe they'll have them in iTunes or something . . .
