Jay and Silent Bob are back in an upcoming reboot from Kevin Smith – the genius behind the Jay and Silent Bob and Clerks franchise. While it’s exciting enough to know Smith and Jason Mewes are coming back to reprise their roles as the iconic characters, it seems like there’s going to be some fantastic casting decisions considering the latest Instagram post by Smith.
As you can see, not only are he and Mewes dressed as their characters, we have Joe Manganiello, Craig Robinson, Frankie Shaw, Justin Long, and Jordan Monsanto joining them.

Here come da’ Judge! @jayandsilentbob had to go to court yesterday with a comedic legal dream team that included a pair of #zackandmirimakeaporno veterans! On the bench was the honorable @mrcraigrobinson, who fought frigid Pittsburgh winter weather with me a decade ago to make a Porno. Speaking of Penguins country, Pittsburgh’s own @deathsaves Dungeon master Mister @joemanganiello was our Bailiff (with producer @jordanmonsanto playing his twin). The creator, star and director of my favorite show, @sho_smilf (as well as my costar in the #hollyweed pilot) @frankieshawisag joined us as the Prosecutor! And for the Defense – my @tuskthemovie brother-in-sewn-up-arms, the genius @therealstephenblatt as the Lawyer (who sounds an awful lot like a Bobby Long-less Brandon St. Randy)! Reboot looks like my extended family scrap book, with cameos from folks I’ve worked with for years (and a few famous folks I’ve never met before but am looking forward to making pretend beside). And these fine folks flew all the way to #nola the day before #mardigras to fling funny around and make my movie better. And since I know what they got paid, I’m relatively sure they didn’t do it for the meager money. There’s a lot of love in this photo (which more resembles the key art for a “Night Court” reboot than the actual scene we shot yesterday). I appreciate that love and send it right back to my fellow thespians for making the cross-country Reboot-y Call! #KevinSmith #jasonmewes #craigrobinson #justinlong #frankieshaw #joemanganiello #deathsaves #jayandsilentbobreboot #JayandSilentBob #JayandSilentBobStrikeBack #indiefilm #indiefilmmaking @dpronlevy @traceylandon @destrofilms @jaymewes @jayandsilentbob @jordanmonsanto @kylebonokaplan 📸 @saban_films @universalpictures @skitbags @hideoutpictures @legionmofficial
We also know that Brian O’Halloran will be joining them and MAYBE we’ll be getting Jason Lee, considering a teaser look at Brodie’s Secret Stash, which Lee’s character was the owner of. On top of this, Smith revealed that a Mooby’s will be in the film, which was the food franchise in Dogma and Clerks 2, where Dante and Randall worked once the Quickstop burnt down.
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is expected to be released in the fall and will follow the characters as they: “return to Hollywood to stop a reboot of ‘Bluntman and Chronic’ movie from getting made.”
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
