Indie film icon, Jason Mewes, is perhaps best known as the vocal half of the on-screen comedic duo, Jay and Silent Bob.
Mewes’ has reprised his role as celebrated character, “Jay,” in a number of hit films.
With cult-fans following his controversial antics, Mewes has captured audiences with 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.
In 2011, Mewes co-hosted the TV series, Cinema Enema, which also reviews film in an off kilter way. To date, Mewes’ podcast with Smith, Jay and Silent Bob Get Old, completed its 95th episode and is fast approaching #100. Mewes has taken the success of this series and executive produced the DVD version entitled, "Jay and Silent Bob Get Old: Teabagging in the UK" which is set to come out July 2012 and is currently available in the UK. Mewes’ most noted film credits include: Smith’s award-winning "Clerks", "Mallrats", "Chasing Amy", "Dogma", "Clerks II", "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back". This string of cult hits all celebrated and continued Mewes’ infamous role as “Jay,” a bawdy, fast talking, and over sexed but very likable guy. For his successful and brow-raising portrayal, MTV honored him with 2007’s Dirtiest Mouth Award. In 2010, Jason appeared in the mobster comedy, "The Last Godfather" alongside Harvey Keitel and Blake Clark, in which he played, “Vinnie,” a Mafia boss who trains his mentally impaired son as his successor. In 2012 Mewes stars as the lead in the comedy "Money Shot" in which he played “The Pimp” that gets even.
