Kevin Smith’s View Askewniverse is returning to theaters, people. Initially intending to finish this shared world with 2001’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Again, the director modified his thoughts and added Clerks II to the sequence 5 years later. Now after greater than a decade and Clerks III falling by way of, Smith is as soon as once more returning to his cinematic playground with Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which can see the duo as soon as once more heading again to Hollywood to trigger bother after they study that the Bluntman and Continual film being rebooted.
Other than Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith clearly reprising Jay and Silent Bob, respectively, up to now the one different actor who’s been confirmed for this “reboot” is Brian O’Halloran, who will reprise his Clerks character, Dante Hicks, in addition to different members of the Hicks prolonged household. Since Smith promised that Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will function “an all-star forged of cameos and acquainted faces,” we have gathered another View Asknewniverse characters (and in a single case, somebody taking part in a fictional model of themselves) who’re additionally price bringing again.
Of all of the characters Jason Lee performed within the View Askewniverse, Banky Edwards is the one who would match most seamlessly into Jay and Silent Bob Reboot‘s story. As Chasing Amy followers will keep in mind, Banky co-created Bluntman and Continual with Holden McNeil (we’ll get again to him later), and on the finish of that film, Holden had offered all his publishing and artistic rights to the comedian guide sequence to Banky, making him the first inventive marketing consultant on the Bluntman and Continual film. Jay and Silent Bob have been capable of squeeze their share of the royalties out of Banky in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Again, however with a reboot now within the works greater than 15 years later, the duo would little doubt goal him once more to vent their frustrations and persuade him to close down this new manufacturing. We would even be cool with Lee reprising Brodie Bruce from Mallrats (who presumably nonetheless has his comedian guide store), however Banky ought to be the precedence.
Since Jeff Anderson wasn’t willing to reprise Randal Graves for Clerks III, it is uncertain that he’ll wish to return for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. However we will not depart Brian O’Halloran’s Dante Hicks all by himself on the Fast Cease, so why not convey again Rosario Dawson to play Becky Scott. Dante lastly admitted in direction of the top of Clerks II that he was in love with Becky and proposed to her. If these two married and nonetheless stay a contented life with each other, then it could be nice if Becky may hang around behind the counter with Dante throughout his Jay and Silent Bob Reboot second(s) so he can have somebody to speak with, even when she’s possible not as educated about film trivia as Randal is. Together with Becky additionally will increase the prospect we may see her and Dante’s little one, who would will possible be in center college by the point Jay and Silent Bob Reboot occurs.
