Some new additions to the Jay and Silent Bob reboot as an Instagram post by director Kevin Smith informs us that rappers Method Man and Redman will have a scene in the film. Method Man and Redman will be nice additions to the film, even though the two are best known as rappers, they’re no strangers to the screen, having starred in their very own film in 2001’s How High and also had their own sitcom, Method and Red that unfortunately only lasted one season.
Method Man, of course, is a member of the Wu-Tang Clan, who in my opinion delivers a deeper and more intellectual style of rap. Redman, while not a member of the Wu-Tang Clan is also well established on the mic, the duo have released two albums together. You can check out Kevin Smith’s lengthy Instagram post below.

Method Acting! In @jayandsilentbob Reboot, we finally answer the immortal question: How high? So @jaymewes and I turned to the only men who might be able to solve this eternal mystery: @methodmanofficial & @redmangilla! Holy fuck, what a great night we had on set! It was a gigantic, packed day where we had a hundred extras and I was in and out of costumes – and in the middle of it all was the Mef and Red scene. But the moment we called “Action,” the legends launched into the single best first take I ever shot in 25 years: they were pitch-perfect and hysterical (and a little touching)! It was so good, I could’ve cut their whole performance from that one take! But my friends flew all way to #nola to say this shit, so we did another two shot, a pair of singles and then picture wrapped our secret sauce! I’ve had millions of memorable moments over the course of my career. But watching that magic take unfurl is in my Top Ten! And when I heard #methodman and #redman say “Snoogans” and “Snootchie Bootchies”? I was lifted! Many thanks for bringing absolute fire, my friends! #KevinSmith #jasonmewes #jaymewes #JayandSilentBobReboot #indiefilm #JayandSilentBob #wutang #acting #JayandSilentBobStrikeBack #indiefilmmaking
Wow, so if Kevin Smith can somehow get Cheech and Chong and Harold and Kumar to appear in the film, he will have assembled what is the most comprehensive ensemble of on-screen marijuana users to ever grace the screen. I for one am glad Smith has returned to comedy, and for the time being, left the horror genre alone (Tusk was f*****g disturbing).
If you liked the original film and are a fan of Smith’s work (which I did and I am) then you’re all for this reboot, and if you’re not, well then this film simply isn’t for you. Those of us who are in on the film won’t have to wait too long as the flick is eyeing a fall release.
