Kevin Smith: Free Red State Tickets For NYPD

NEW YORK (WFAN) — Director Kevin Smith joined Boomer & Carton on Wednesday morning to extend an invitation to all NYPD members for the screening of his new movie, Red State.

First, Smith wanted to clear the air about something: He did not write Good Will Hunting.

“Before (Matt Damon and Ben Affleck) made that movie, everyone was just like ‘there’s no way two dopey actors who haven’t been in anything of any note wrote this movie,’ so they started looking for people that might have helped,” Smith said. “At one point, they pointed a finger at me, where I’m like ‘I don’t write beautiful things!'”

Smith will screen Red State at Radio City Music Hall on March 5. The director said he will have plenty of room to admit New York’s Finest.

“I know for a fact we’ll never sell out Radio City Music Hall, it’s six thousand seats,” Smith explained. “I only had a month to sell it with only using Twitter and jumping on radio and stuff like that.”

“Every New York City cop who wants to go see Red State that night, we’ve got the extra tickets. They are welcome to them.”

Tickets for Red State range from $54.50 to $124.50.

Boomer & Carton have dreams of publishing a comic involving their alter-egos,  Mega Boom and the Great Cartini. Smith, who owns a comic book shop in his home town of Red Bank, N.J., has some constructive criticism for the duo.

“It’s never a good idea to include your name in your superhero name,” Smith said.

    I want to thank you Boomer for speaking up this morning in reference to the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Specifically when Smith said it didn’t bother him that she got the words wrong. I mean, you can sing off key, that happens, but mincing the words while the world is watching? Shame on him for commenting that he thought “who cares”. But good for you for saying, “I care” Made me proud, and didn’t surprise me. You’re a class act. Thanks again Bro……. You Rock!
