Actor Brian O'Halloran, best known for playing Dante Hicks in "Clerks" and working on many of Kevin Smith's other films, was in town not long ago working on the James L. Brooks comedy, playing a waiter in a Reese Witherspoon and Paul Rudd date scene shot at Union Trust (717 Chestnut).

He also worked in the area on M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening," but before both of those projects, O'Halloran spent some time in Bucks County shooting the teen-sex comedy "Hooking Up," out tomorrow on DVD.

O'Halloran plays a high school principal and father of a student who aggressively pursues her chemistry teacher, played by Bronson Pinchot.

Corey Feldman also co-stars as a 25-year-old cokehead who dates and is abusive toward a high school girl in the film written and produced by Doylestown-raised Jeff Siegel, a Central Bucks East grad, and directed by Levittown-raised Vincent Scordia, who attended Neshaminy.

The actor says he was happy to play a parent, and says it was a "refreshing little break" that this time he wasn't the one doing all the dirty talk, which "Hooking Up" is certainly full of.

"I felt like these guys are really pushing the envelope, like how Kevin pushed the envelope in 1993. Back with 'Clerks' I learned the term 'snowballing' then I read this script, and read about 'seagulling' and 'rainbow parties.' I'm not a prude, I've heard a lot of things, but I hadn't heard of those."

Next up for O'Halloran, who performs a lot of theater in the New York area, is a film he's helping to develop called "Keeper of the Pinstripes," based on a children's book "Boy of Steel," about a child overcoming adversity to become a Yankees batboy. Alex Rodriguez and Hideki Matsui are signed on to appear, O'Halloran says.
