Jay and Silent Bob have been the cult favorite BFFs for over two decades. The duo — who have been seen in countless films, comic books and TV shows — is played by real life childhood friends, writer/director/actor Kevin Smith and actor Jason Mewes. The characters made their debut in Smith’s first feature, the indie classic Clerks, and have gone on to appear in all of Smith’s “View Askewniverse” films. With news that another Jay and Silent Bob movie is on the way, Looper created a video looking into the origins and popularity of two. From drug addictions to studio interferences, get the untold story of Jay and Silent Bob above.
Another famous onscreen pair, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are set to reunite for a new X-Files project.
