Lee gives his thoughts on his role in the movie Mallrats:
Oh, that wasn’t a cameo! I was one of the stars, shame on you. But I enjoyed it tremendously and I enjoyed Kevin Smith, we got along beautifully. Tell you a funny thing about it, though – in the movie, I’m supposed to be telling somebody that they shouldn’t feel bad about losing a girl because I had lost a girl once and I still remember her and blah blah blah. I went home and my wife said, What’s this about that girl you were talking about? And I said, Honey, it’s just movie! But it took me a while to pacify her.
