Rachel's Blog: Jay and Silent Bob go to Degrassi High-igh-igh-igh

It'll be a clash of pop cultures next week, as indie movie cult figures Jay and Silent Bob enrol at Degrassi High.
"It's like When Worlds Collide, y'know? I'm a big fan of things like when Spider-Man and Daredevil meet. I go ape-(bleep) and bust a nut," said director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy), who is finally getting his chance to take part in the cult series he idolizes by starring in a three-episode arc on Degrassi: The Next Generation.

This is so cool! I've gone all fan-girly. I think Degrassi is the only show that I'll ignore people through (mostly they know now not to even bother asking what I want for dinner in while it's on). And I was definitely the only person in the cinema cracking up over Doherty's Degrassi jacket in Mallrats. (via Boing Boing)
