Tonight on the program, we've got writer, filmmaker, podcaster and TV host Kevin Smith in the red chair. Smith has often been effusive about his relationship with his wife, the actor and former USA Today reporter Jennifer Schwalbach Smith, whom he first cast in 2001's Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (she played a diamond thief named Missy). Since then, she's appeared in cameos and larger roles in various other Smith movies, such as Jersey Girl, Clerks II and Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Here are a few other directors who've cast their wives, husbands or other manner of partners in their films.
Don't forget to tune into George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight on December 19 at 7 and 11:30 p.m. on CBC TV to catch Smith in the red chair.
