Given the Sports Putz’ willingness to use his unique skills (cough) to raise money to defeat cancer, I suppose 6+ hours of Bill Simmons chat could be considered collateral damage. But much like Truman’s decicion to level Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I hope a good deal of soul searching went into this on the part of ESPN.com

Bill Simmons: (12:09 PM ET ) Mike from Cleveland asks: “Dont know if you’ve seen Mr.Brooks, but Dane Cook is in it and when he dies I couldnt help but yell out THERE’S ONLY ONE WAY TO HAVE YOUR THROAT SLASHED to mock his playoff baseball commercials.”

Bill Simmons: (12:10 PM ET ) Glad you brought this up. I hate to give away a key plot point in an Oscar winner like Mr. Brooks, but here we go… if you don’t like Dane Cook, definitely rent this movie if you ever wanted to see something horrible happen to him.

    At least he’s leaving Werner Herzog out of his film criticism these days.

    Matthew (Columbus,OH): Hey Bill are you a fan of Kevin Smith? He just announced his new movie will star Seth Rogen (quickly becoming a huge comedy star) and Elizabeth Banks (a very underrated and good looking actress). The best part is the title “Zach and Miri Make a Porno.” Can this movie go wrong?

    Bill Simmons: (3:36 PM ET ) On paper, I like everything in that paragraph. I do like Kevin Smith – his movies always have just enough going on in them that you never feel like you wasted 90 minutes of your life. He’s on my short list of “Podcast Guests I want To Get,” along with Larry David and Hank Steinbrenner.

    Yeah, Kevin Smith would be edgy for a bozo who wrote for Jimmy Kimmel. God, I hate this guy.
