Jason Mewes: Jay & Silent Bob Get Old

Posted: Updated:

Jason Mewes rose to stardom in the '90s with a string of movies including ‘Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back,’ ‘Clerks,’ and ‘Mallrats.’

Jason and Kevin Smith have had many popular follow ups with their characters…here is one of their latest movies: ‘Jay & Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie.’

Fun facts about Jason Mewes: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) He is an American television and film actor, film producer and internet radio show host. He has played Jay, the vocal half of the duo Jay and Silent Bob, in longtime friend Kevin Smith's films.

2) While working toward a career in roofing, Mewes made his film debut in Smith's 1994 film Clerks as Jay. The film was a huge success; ever since, Mewes has been closely identified with the role, which he also played in Mallrats (1995), Chasing Amy (1997), Dogma (1999), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001), and Clerks II (2006). He also supplied Jay's voice in the short-lived Clerks: The Animated Series. He, along with Kevin Smith, performed in the films Scream 3 and Bottoms Up and on Canadian television series Degrassi: The Next Generation. He appeared in two episodes of a three-part story arc in which he and Smith film a new addition to Smith's View Askew films titled Jay and Silent Bob Go Canadian, Eh? at Degrassi Community School. They appear again on Degrassi (in a two-part episode), at the premiere of Jay and Silent Bob go Canadian, Eh? in Canada. Mewes, Smith, and Degrassi star Stacie Mistysyn made the cover of the January 29, 2005 issue of Canadian TV Guide.

3) In 1998, he starred as "Gary Lamb – Ground Activist" in a series of Nike commercials directed by Smith. From 2010-2012, Mewes was cast as "Jimmy the Janitor" for 26 episodes of the Canadian television series Todd and the Book of Pure Evil.

They followed up that movie with a comedy tour, and this Thursday, you can see the guys together on Jason's 40th birthday at the Comedy Store in Hollywood when they present "Jay and Silent Bob Get Old."
