Kevin Smith Reveals Latest Addition To Jay And Silent Bob Reboot
Kevin Smith may have wrapped production on Jay and Silent Bob Reboot this week, but the creator is still dropping news about the upcoming movie.
The director and co-star has been keeping fans well informed about the filming process on social media, giving frequent updates on the movie’s newest cast members.
One of his last production posts revealed Joey Lauren Adams’ return to the View Askewniverse.
Adams is best known to Smith fans for playing Gwen in Mallrats and Alyssa Jones in Chasing Amy.
The actress reprised the role of Alyssa for a cameo in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and it appears she’ll be doing the same in Reboot.
@joeylaurenadams is back as indie comic icon Alyssa Jones, when @jayandsilentbob Reboot!
Neither #jayandsilentbobstrikeback nor #jayandsilentbobreboot could have happened without me knowing Joey.
Because we met, I made #chasingamy in the first place - and Amy is where the idea of #jayandsilentbob as the basis for #bluntmanandchronic originated (as a commentary about the differences between the slapsticky Jay and Bob in #mallrats versus the slacker Jay and Bob in #clerks),”
“And both Strike Back and Reboot hinge on their comic book alter egos somehow f****** with our heroes’ real lives.
So of course Joey had to be there when we returned to the #viewaskewniverse.
This woman not only made me a better artist, Joey also made me a better person.
When I saw her on shoot day, I said “See all these trucks?
All this equipment and all these people came all the way to #neworleans today - all because you and I met 24 years ago.” I’ve done some of my best work with #joeylaurenadams - and I’m hoping Reboot ranks right up there with Amy and Rats.
With Joey on board as Alyssa Jones - one of my favorite characters in any of my #viewaskew movies - we’re that much closer to the goal!”
