Smith also jump started the careers of two of his friends, Jason Lee (who before ''Film/{{Mallrats}}'' was one of the most well known professional skateboarders in the country) and Creator/BenAffleck by casting them in major roles in ''Film/{{Mallrats}}'' and ''Film/ChasingAmy'' before they both went off to fame and fortune (both would appear in all of Smith's other Askewniverse movies).
