Cinema icon, Jason Mewes, is perhaps best known as the potty-mouthed vocal half of JAY AND SILENT BOB, the on- screen comedic duo who first appeared in Kevin Smith’s seminal 1994 indie film, CLERKS. Mewes would reprise his role as the celebrated character five more times on the big screen from 1995 to 2006, in films including MALLRATS, CHASING AMY, DOGMA, ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO, and JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK. His character would become a sort of James Bond of the mid-90’s low budget film – a fast talking, foul-mouthed, over-sexed, but ultimately harmless and likeable guy. For his successful and brow-raising portrayal, MTV honored him with 2007’s Dirtiest Mouth Award.

With cult-fans following his controversial antics, Mewes has captured audiences with his rebellious banter against his unspoken other half and longtime friend, Kevin Smith (Silent Bob). Since the beginning of the duo’s offbeat work together, Mewes and Smith have continued to build on their beloved character driven roles from the Jay and Silent Bob series. It’s been over a decade since fans last saw the duo in live action, but they’re back along with a star-studded cast in the upcoming comedy film, JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT, scheduled to hit theaters on October 15th through Saban Films. The film pokes fun at the entertainment business, at remakes, sequels, and reboots, but also includes a more personal tale of what it’s like for Jay to become a father. A sequel to the 2001 parody, JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK, the duo embarks on a cross-country mission to stop Hollywood from filming a reboot of ‘Bluntman and Chronic’ from getting made.

Most recently, Jay made his directorial debut on a film titled MADNESS IN THE METHOD, which was released in select theaters, on demand and digitally in August 2019, with a DVD and Blu-ray release to follow later in the year. The film follows a fictionalized version of Mewes as he tries to change Hollywood’s perception of him. Upon advice from best friend Kevin Smith, Mewes tracks down a secret method acting book to reinvent himself as a serious actor – with disastrous consequences!

Starting in October, Jay and Kevin will be hitting the road with “The Jay and Silent Bob Reboot Roadshow” where they will tour the film in select markets. In addition, Jay can be seen touring comedy clubs across the country with his solo show, “A- Mewes-ing Stories,” where he shares stories about his life and encounters over the years.

In addition, the duo has built a cult following with their insanely popular, award-winning podcast, Jay & Silent Bob Get Old. For over eight years, in what’s been described as “Lake Wobegon days with anal jokes,” Jay has told the story of his tumultuous life. To date, the podcast has completed over 235 episodes and has been named one of the best on iTunes.

Outside of his work with Smith, Mewes has starred in the Wunderkind Pictures feature, NOOBZ, an indie “gamers” film about four friends and Gears of Wars players who embark on a quest to survive a road trip and win a Gamecon Championship. Mewes also appeared in the film, ROCK JOCKS, about a group of dysfunctional government employees who find themselves responsible for shooting down an asteroid on track for the Earth. In 2010, he appeared in the mobster comedy, THE LAST GODFATHER, alongside Harvey Keitel and Blake Clark. Most recently, he has guest starred on several television series including The Flash, Hawaii 5-0 and Z Nation.
