  • Quotes

    • Brian: (On theatre acting) Oh, yeah. It's the best training you can do, as an actor. To be in front of a live audience. There's no stop, wait, oh geez, what was that line again? It just sharpens your reflexes. It sharpens your interaction. And it definitely sharpens your memory because you have to know an entire show from beginning to end.

  • We've all watched Clerks. We know who Jay and Silent Bob are. We appreciate the guy who made Clerks, but I don't think we appreciate the guys who played the clerks.moreless

    Brian O'Halloran really shouldve had more roles. I'm serious. Almost all his roles were involved with Smith. We all know him as Dante Hicks. We all know him as that guy who keeps yelling out,"I'm not even supposed to be here today!" We all know him as that guy who played hockey at the roof of Quick Stop. We only know him for that. He could've had more roles. View Askew shouldn't be the only thing that he is involved with. He was great as Dante. He could be great in other roles. Hopefully, he will. It shouldn't always be about Jay and Silent Bob! It could be about Dante Hicks!moreless
