The Clerks director has signed on to direct an episode of Battlestar Galactica...Smith also revealed that he will not only direct an episode of the Heroes spin-off show Heroes Origins, but he has also been given full creative control to write the episode and create the character.
This is of course all awesome. I have not seen Kevin Smith direct something along the lines of this kind of genre. Then again, I dont really see much of Kevin's work.
