Jason Mewes Talks About Jay and Silent Bob, Working with Kevin Smith — and His Roofing Job

Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith have been playing and talking about their fictional weed-dealing duo Jay and Silent Bob for 17 years, starting with 1994's Clerks through to 2006's Clerks II. For the past few years, they've presented a live podcast Jay and Silent Bob Get Old, which stops at the Castro Theatre on Friday (Oct. 28) as a double-feature with Smith's freaky new horror film Red State (in which Jay and Silent Bob do not appear).

After six films, two comics, and an animated series, there still may be something new to come for Jay and Silent Bob, says Mewes, but if not, the legacy has been surprising and strong. Halloween costumes are encouraged at this Castro gig, by the way, and we think this pair would be awesome to emulate.
