Best known for his roles in the Jay and Silent Bob movies and the endless epic quotes spat out of this fowl little mouth like "Snootchie Bootchies, I am the C.L.I.T. Commander!, and Boo boo kitty fuck," Jason Mewes can be kicked down but he can't be stopped. With a long history of drug use, Jason has overcome and stays on the path of showcasing his skills and his vicious sense of humor. Long gone are his days of Mallrats, Clerks, Dogma, and a bunch more movies that could keep us here all day, but the memories (and the re-watching over and over) of these cult classic we've all grown to know and love will ride or die with us forever.
These days Jason continues to keep it moving with tons of new projects and by co-hosting a wildly popular show with his bestie Kevin Smith aptly called, "Jay and Silent Bob Get Old" on Kevin's Smodcast Internet Radio. Taking the show on the road solidifies the love for Jason's work worldwide and this Friday you'll get to be part of the fun when "Jay and Silent Bob Go Down Under" premieres on EPIX at 10pm (EST). Before all of the shenanigans, laughs, and sex stories that special will be bringing (trust us, we pre-screened it), we got the chance to talk with him to get the scoop on his past, his future, and his ever exciting present.
OC Weekly (Ali Lerman): You and Kevin have done so many projects together and are such good friends but be honest, do you ever get sick of each other?
Jason Mewes: No we actually don't. I think because we don't have a normal friendship. We met when I was thirteen and he was like seventeen. Even before the drugs and everything, I always thought he was cool because Kevin has always been a different kind of dude. He was like an older mentor brother. As time went on and I started using drugs, he tried to help me and he's always been trying to help me out. It's just a different relationship with him. It's hard to explain. People have these weird ego confrontation things and we don't have anything like that. We never fight or argue, there is never anything like that going on.
