‘Jay and Silent Bob Reboot’ Adds Shannon Elizabeth Among Others!!!

As filming on Jay and Silent Bob heads into its final days, Kevin Smith has taken to Instagram to reveal two more additions to the cast of his View Askewniverse return, with Shannon Elizabeth (Justice) and Jennifer Schwalbach (Missy) reprising their roles from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Harley Quinn Smith (Yoga Hosers), Alice Wen (Mr. Student Body President), Treshelle Edmond (Master of None) and Aparna Brielle (A.OP. Bio) as the new ‘Girl Gang’, and pro wrestler Chris Jericho – who recently worked with Smith on the upcoming anthology horror Killroy Was Here – in an as-yet-unrevealed role.

And Justice for all! It didn’t feel like a true sequel until @shannonelizabeth stepped on the set of @jayandsilentbob Reboot. But it’s almost like she stepped out of a box that was sealed when we wrapped #jayandsilentbobstrikeback – because Shannon hasn’t aged at all! Time marches on, and it’s marched all over my face and Jay’s face – but not Shannon’s! The love of Jay’s life returns to kick our primary plot into gear – and Shannon returned to us from #africa, where she’s been living lately, working to save elephants and rhinos with her @shannonelizabethfdn! So @jaymewes and I were especially appreciative Shannon not only came back but also came far, leaving behind the noble work for a minute to do some silly shit with old friends. One of the hidden highlights of the shoot for me thus far was overhearing #jasonmewes remind #shannonelizabeth that she was his first onscreen kiss. 18 years after we all got together and struck back, we’re reuniting to Reboot! #KevinSmith #jaymewes #jayandsilentbobreboot #neworleans #nostalgia #memberberries🍇#boobookittyfuck

I was there when #y2jayandsilentbob happened! @chrisjerichofozzy joined #jayandsilentbobreboot last week in a scene stolen from some of the 80’s road movies I grew up watching! This was the first time @jaymewes shared screen time with #rawisjericho but it’s the second time I’ve worked with the #fozzy frontman (the first being on the forthcoming horror anthology #killroywashere). And both times, this super sweet Canadian kid has been cast waaaaay against type. If I ever get to make another movie after this one, I told Chris he’s gonna be a good guy (maybe we’ll finally do that Canadian James Bond comedy we talked about on the podcast that one time). After today, we only have 8 shooting days left on @jayandsilentbob Reboot, which is basically the entire third act. I’ve got 40 minutes of the movie already edited and I’ll cut more this weekend. Thanks to @dpronlevy, the movie is way better than I even wanted it to be (Reboot is easily one of my best looking movies to date). And starting at noon, it’s all cameos all the time from here on out, as fresh famous faces join us every day until we wrap! #KevinSmith #chrisjericho #jasonmewes #jaymewes #roadmovie #sabanfilms #neworleans

For #internationalwomensday, let me introduce you to our Reboot Girl Gang! In #jayandsilentbobstrikeback, @jayandsilentbob met up with a Girl Gang in a van. So in the Reboot, the stoner duo meet up with another Girl Gang in a very similar van (I’m telling you, it’s almost the same movie). And as most reboots feature a familiar story freshly presented with a young and diverse new cast, we follow the example and go full “Force Awakens” with our Girl Gang! But that’s not the only movie with origins in the 70’s that we share a little DNA with: #jayandsilentbobreboot has some #badnewsbears in it, with me & @jaymewes as Buttermaker and the Girl Gang as our North Valley Bears (but with the van, we’re more like #thebadnewsbearsinbreakingtraining). @aparnabrielle plays our plucky Jihad, @treshelleedmond plays our Silent Bob-ish Soapy, @alysswhen plays our mysterious international podcaster Shan Yu, and my favorite actress ever @harleyquinnsmith plays Milly – who’s kinda like the Justice of this Girl Gang (minus the romance with Jay, naturally). And like the last Girl Gang that changed Jay and Silent Bob’s lives, these quick, quippy young ladies will take our heroes on the adventure of a lifetime, ending at that most wretched hive of scum and villainy – Hollywood! #KevinSmith #jasonmewes #jaymewes #harleyquinnsmith #aparnabrielle #treshelleedmond #alicewen #JayandSilentBobReboot #JayandSilentBob #SilentBob #jenschwalbach #reboot #indiefilm #indiefilmmaking #neworleans @dpronlevy @traceylandon @destrofilms @jayandsilentbob @jordanmonsanto @kylebonokaplan 📸 @saban_films @universalpictures @skitbags @legionmofficial @hideoutpictures

You think I’d miss Missy? @jenschwalbach played one of the original Girl Gang in #jayandsilentbobstrikeback so when she shot her scene today in @jayandsilentbob Reboot, it was like returning royalty! Part of the fun of filmmaking for me is putting people I love in front of the camera. That way, the whole flick functions like a very expensive family photo album! And Jen is who I think of when I think of family – both in real life and in the movies too! Also: for those keeping count, this is the fourth Mooby’s fast food joint we’ve built for the #viewaskewniverse flicks, starting with Dogma in 1999. So 2019 also marks the 20th anniversary of Mooby, the Golden Calf! #KevinSmith #jenschwalbach #jayandsilentbobreboot #neworleans #moobys #viewaskew
