I was shocked and perturbed to learn that Ethan.S was so disrespectful to Mewes and the aura that is NJ in the incident that Malcom described.
Ethan.S will always be reputable for his work in Mallrats and Chasing Amy (if I'm not mistaken, he made a voice contribution to Dogma as well) but his status among the upper echelon of badass actors has dissipated, at least in my opinion.
Mewes' badass stature transcends said echelon.
Obviously I don't know jack shit about the bad blood that was established between these guys at some point in the Viewaskewniverse, so my sudden acrimony for Ethan.S is a result of my respect for Mewes' seemingly effortless panache, a contention that is surely mutual for all fans of the skew.
I had read in numerous periodicals that Ethan was was a member of Dicaprio and Maguire's clique (If I'm not mistaken, they called themselves the "pussy posse" at one point) but I never thought he would've succumbed to a condescending Hollywood attitude.
I hope Ethan.S and JM can somehow resolve their differences in the future for the sake of the comedic aplomb that ES brought to his roles in the VA films.
p.s. what's your drink of choice Malcom?
