Star of Clerks, Mallrats, and Chasing Amy
Indie film icon, Jason Mewes, is perhaps best known as the vocal half of the on-screen comedic duo, Jay and Silent Bob with writer/director Kevin Smith. 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.
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 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. Mewes also plays Ben Shapiro in the feature K-11, directed by Jules Stewart. Mewes recently wrapped Spoilers, alongside Smith in an ambitious online show airing on Hulu.
Mewes is the Creative Producer at SModCo Internet Radio (SIR), which launched in May 2011, as well as the Creative Producer at SModCo Internet TV (SIT), which launched in May 2012 and lives online as a YouTube channel. SModco produces Mewes’ weekly video blog called, Mewes Views, which was also the first SIT video to air. Mewes’ podcast with Smith, Jay and Silent Bob Get Old, is fast approaching it 200th episode.
