Kevin Smith returns to NJ foru00a0Clerks III, 'a movie about how much people hate working'


Kevin Smith is supposed to be here these days.

Smith, the Red Bank-born and Highlands-raised filmmaker, returns to his personal and professional roots with his latest movie, “Clerks III.”

The film will be presented in theaters nationwide by Fathom Events and Lionsgate 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13 through Sunday, Sept. 18. Smith is also taking the film on the road for the “Convenience Tour” roadshow experience, launching Sunday, Sept. 4 at the Hackensack Meridian Health Theatre at the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank.

His new release continues the story that made Smith an independent film sensation nearly 30 years ago, when the original “Clerks” (1994) introduced the world to jaded Quick Stop convenience store employees Dante Hicks (Brian O’Halloran) and Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson) along with their friendly neighborhood drug dealers Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith himself).

Back in 2006, Smith offered a poignant and satisfying full-circle conclusion with “Clerks II,” which found Dante and Randall taking charge of their place of employment from the original film in the Leonardo section of Middletown.

But Smith always knew there was more to the story, he told the Asbury Park Press.

“I’ve been trying to make ‘Clerks III’ almost since we wrapped ‘Clerks II,’” Smith said. Smith said he wanted to return to the sentiment of a now-classic jail cell scene in “Clerks II” where Randal cracks his veneer of snark. Smith called it “one of my favorite things I’ve ever done in a movie.”

“Randal shows his true heart for the first time, instead of just being acerbic or esoteric or a wisecracker he kind of lets it out,” Smith recounted. “He’s like, ‘I’d buy the Quick Stop and re-open it myself,’ it’s just a big moment for the character, it’s a big moment performance-wise for Jeff, and I was like, ‘I would love to spend a whole movie with that moment, that guy now.’”

After an earlier and far darker iteration of the screenplay featured Randal experiencing a post-superstorm Sandy nervous breakdown, the version of “Clerks III” arriving in theaters was informed by the massive heart attack Smith suffered in 2008.

“Clerks III” finds Randal, after experiencing a near-fatal heart attack, at work on an independent film about the quirks of life as a convenience store clerk. Smith famously created the original “Clerks” while working at the Quick Stop, and he decided to return to the View Askewniverse for “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” after his own heart attack.

Smith and Randal both experienced the sort of dangerous heart attack doctors refer to as the “widow-maker,” and both of their life-saving doctors share the last name Ladenheim (Randal’s is played by Amy Sedaris of “BoJack Horseman” and “The Mandalorian.”) It’s all a continuation of the bond between Smith and Randal, a character he had originally written for himself to play.

“As we got closer to (filming ‘Clerks’), I was like, ‘I can’t memorize all this dialogue,’ so I went for the role with no dialogue whatsoever, Silent Bob,” Smith said. “But that’s why Randal has all the best jokes, because I wanted to be Randal. Thank God there was Jeff, and Jeff defines that character. So in a weird, small way I’ll never get to be Randal but now because of the story personally I did finally get to be the guy that I always wanted to be.”

While the film — Smith’s “Clerks III,” not Randal’s movie-within-the-movie — is rich with references to both View Askewniverse lore and Smith’s own life, the material remains broadly resonant.

“You can enjoy ‘Clerks’ just because it’s a workplace comedy, something that took me nearly 30 years to figure out. That’s why people connect with it,” Smith said. “I was always like, ‘How can this play outside of New Jersey? How can this play outside of Monmouth County? You only have to be from here to understand this.’

“And I didn’t realize that ‘Clerks’ is a movie about how much people hate working, and that’s universal. You don’t even have to do a retail job or work at a convenience store specifically to identify with two people, or anybody, trying to do anything but the job.”

Back to the scene

“Clerks III” is Smith’s first film since his debut to be entirely shot entirely in New Jersey, he said. By pulling up the original film on the HBO Max app on his phone for reference, Smith found himself composing shots to match those he’d filmed nearly three decades earlier, in the same locations and with the same actors. It was an experience that Smith compared to fantasy camp.

“Within the movie, when they make their movie, it is unmistakably ‘Clerks.’” Smith said. “Part of the fun is you know their history by way of two movies, and the history that (Randal) decides to tell is literally the history from everything you’ve seen. So it’s a real best-of compilation, you get to see everybody.”

That “everybody” includes both famous View Askewniverse players returning for cameos — Ben Affleck, Justin Long and Rosario Dawson among them — as well as friends, family and former neighbors of Smith’s, including the cast of his AMC reality series “Comic Book Men” and three generations of his family.

That’s not to say that “Clerks III” is all cameos and in-jokes. It’s a story of aging, reflection and community that finds Smith trafficking in the same snarky-yet-wounded humanism that’s been the stock-in-trade for fellow New Jersey writers from George R.R. Martin to Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen to Brian Fallon of the Gaslight Anthem.

How to get tickets:Kevin Smith is taking new ‘Clerks III’ on the road

The original “Clerks” launched the View Askewniverse, which has since grown to include eight live-action films, a “Clerks” animated series, comic books and a video game. But “Clerks III” is shot through with melancholy nostalgia and a wistfulness not seen since “Clerks II,” the last time Dante and Randal were his stars.

“At the end of the day, I feel like when I get to play with these characters I throw a bit more into it, I care,” Smith said. “I’m deeply invested in their storyline.”

“Clerks III” will be presented by Fathom Events and Lionsgate in more than 700 cinemas across the country, 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13 through Sunday, Sept. 18. For tickets and a full list of participating theaters, visit

Smith is also taking the film on the road for the “Convenience Tour” roadshow experience, launching 1:30 and 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 4 at the Hackensack Meridian Health Theatre at the Count Basie Center for the Arts, 99 Monmouth St., Red Bank. Other area dates include 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7 at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, Pennsylvania and 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9 at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

Class LL Indoor Track Championships: Danbury’s Smith wins 3 events, Luldowe’s Keeley 2; Hall boys, Glastonbury girls win team titles

Class LL Indoor Track Championships: Danbury’s Smith wins 3 events, Luldowe’s Keeley 2; Hall boys, Glastonbury girls win team titles

NEW HAVEN — Alanna Smith and the Danbury girls track team kicked off the CIAC Class LL Indoor Track Championships at Floyd Little Athletic Center on Friday with a win in the 4×200 relay.

For Smith, it was the beginning of a dominant night.

The Danbury girls won the 4×200 relay in 1:46.50. Florence Dickson ran the first leg followed by Smith, Giuliana Robles and Briana Gilliard.

Smith, competing in her first state indoor track season, also contributed with wins in the 55 dash (7.14) and set a meet record when she won the 300 in 39.58. In the 55, she started strong and produced her typical surge at the end.

“This has been really exciting for me, it was great to start off with the 4×200 win and then the 55,” Smith said. “It’s always important to contribute points for your team.

“I was really excited for the 300 because I was focused on breaking the meet record. I have been working toward that all indoor season”

Smith entered the indoor season coming off an impressive outdoor track season last spring when she was named the GameTimeCT All-State Outdoor Track Player of the Year. At the 2021 Outdoor Track State Open she had three wins in the 100 (12.03), the 200 (24.49) and the 400 (56.78). At the Class LL meet she won the 200 in a meet record 24.85, won the 100 (12.25) and was second in the 400 (59.24). She ran a 200 PR/school record in 24.21 at the New York Showcase on June 18 and 100 PR (11.83) at the New York Showcase.


The Wilbur Cross boys came away with a pair of wins with Blake Battaglia winning the 55 hurdles (8:01) and Nikita Omelchenko winning the 1,600 (4:22.03).

Battaglia needed a late kick to win his event with John Regalbuti of Southington coming in a close second in 8.02.

“I was a little nervous because it was a very close race,” Battaglia said. “It was an exciting race. I needed a strong surge at the end and the lean at the finish line got the win for me.”

Elite distance runner Aidan Puffer of Manchester decided not to run the 1,600 and that opened the door for Omelchenko. He took an early lead and cruised to victory.

“The plan was to take the lead, keep a good pace and finish strong,” said Omelchenko , who has committed to UConn. “I was hoping Aidan Puffer would be in the race for the challenge of racing against him.

“It’s been a good season and I’ve been building up my strength to go faster.”


Tobias Ruffo won the 600 (1:25.92) and the team won the 4×400 relay (3:30.02) to lead Hall to the boys team title with 88 points. Greenwich was second with 55 points and Manchster third with 46.

“We had the depth tonight and so many guys came through,” Hall boys coach Jeff Billing said. “We had a qualifier in every event and we scored points in 12 of 15 events. This is our third straight Class LL title and I am so excited for these guys.”

Brooke Strauss won the 1,000 (2:58.32) to lead Glastonbury to the girls team title with 91.5 points. Danbury was second with 63 points and Fairfield Ludlowe third with 62.

“We had a well-balanced effort tonight, that was the key for us,” Glastonbury girls coach Brian Collins said. “Our depth came through with points in 12 of 15 events and that’s what you need in a meet like this.

“Connecticut has so many great athletes, you really need to be your best to win a team title. Tonight it worked out for us.”


Puffer produced one of the most impressive finishes of the night, lapping the field in the 3,200 to win in 9:18.42. Zachary Taubman of Staples was second in 9:40.48. The meet record of 9:06.06 was set in 2020 by Conard’s Gavin Sherry.

Puffer skipped the 1,600 to focus on the 3,200

“When you are running past runners and the challenge isn’t there, you just let your mind go,” Puffer said. “You focus more on your splits and the pace. I actually went out a little fast the first mile and I felt it in my legs. So I slowed down to maintain a better pace.

“The focus now is to do well in the 3,200 at the State Open.”


Esme Daplyn of Greenwich took the lead in the first lap and pulled away to win the 600 in a personal best 1:38.82.

“This season I’ve struggled with my starts and I’ve been working on it,” Daplyn said. “So today, I said to myself why not go for it and start out front. In the middle of the race I heard a couple of the girls coming closer to me and that pushed me for a strong finish.”


Anna Keeley of Fairfield Ludlowe took the lead coming off the starting line in the 1600 and held on to win in 5:05.21. Brooke Strauss of Glastonbury came on strong at the end and was second in 5:05.99.

“It depends on the competition, but I like to get out front early,” said Keeley, who has committed to run at Duke. “This is a good way to start the states heading toward the State Open and New England meets.”

Keeley cruised to a win in the 3200 in 10:56.24. Brooke Strauss of Glastonbury was second in 11:16.07.


Steven Deitelberg of Fairfield Ludlowe won the boys pole vault (14-0), Grace Gianquinto of Amity won the girls pole vault (9-0), Marques Singleton of McMahon won the boys shot put (45-7.75), Shayna Millard of Newtown won the girls shot put (30-11), Tyler Bartlett of Fairfield Ludlowe won the boys 1000 (2:35.67), Gianluca Bianchi of Greenwich won the boys 300 (36.22), and Tia Stapleton of Faifield Ludlowe won the girls long jump (16-11.25).
