If you’ve grown up with Kevin Smith’s filmography for as long as many of us film fans have, you know that Ben Affleck is an actor who played a huge role early on in his career. From Mallrats to Clerks II, Affleck at least showed up in virtually every piece of celluloid Kevin Smith put out there, and the two are often linked together, in spite of the fact that they seemed to have grown apart over the years.
Kevin Smith has been open about the fact that he didn’t speak with Affleck for nearly a decade and didn’t want to get in touch with him for fear of confirming that they were no longer friends. But, the hatchet has been buried, Affleck is in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, and it looks like they’ve genuinely rekindled a lost friendship.
This is bolstered by Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes’ recent handprint and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, as Affleck spoke on there behalf. You can check out the full speech down below!
All in all, as a fan of Smith since the ‘90s, it’s great to see this bromance continue on, and while the two often work at completely different planes in terms of the content they put out, I certainly hope we’ll get to see the two work together intimately in some future projects again down the line.
