Kevin Smith, HuffPost Live Host?

Because Kevin Smith still and primarily uses an AOL email address (!), he is utterly familiar with HuffPost Live and a major fan of the nascent network. From the get-go of his half-hour chat alongside Jason Mewes with Alicia Menendez this afternoon, he kept dropping hints about wanting to be a host himself.

Fan Tweet Morphs Into $69,000 Kevin Smith Cartoon Feature

Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie will start rolling out this spring by means of a Red State USA-style cross-country road show, with the two leads in tow for lively post-show podcast Q&A. From today’s announcement:

Kevin Smith Blows Up Movie Critic TV Show Format

In each episode of Spoilers, he will have 50 citizen co-hosts.
