Minnesotta. The land of ten thousand lakes, cold winters, and some Great Lake-front property. It's the state responsible for Brenda and Brandon Walsh. It's where one heck of an Overnight Delivery was sent. It's also the state where you want to make porn. Err... Well, it was said to be the state Kevin Smith was traveling to for his upcoming comedy Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Not anymore. Smith found a much better state suited for 30-somethings looking to start an amateur porn business -- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!

His View Askew message board has been heating up with bits of news about the upcoming comedy focusing on Zack and Miri, two people who have reached their thirties, have rent problems and a reunion looming, and decide to get into the amateur porn business. The location was moved to Pittsburgh, because it's cheaper (and coincidentally, it happens to be 10 years after the last time he shot there), it will include studio and location shooting over a roughly 40-day period, and Smith hopes to have some news about who will join Jason Mewes on the cast in the next few weeks. In the meantime, we can muse. My vote: Eliza Dushku could make tough girl, fighter porn with a different Dawson, James Van Der Beek, who can pull off some loserishness and toughness -- because every amateur needs a special talent. I don't know why, but my brain refuses to think of anyone else. Who would you cast as some young 30-somethings who get into porn, and just what would their specialty be?
