As filmmaker Kevin Smith introduced it, method acting is here — and it comes in the form of Method Man and Redman teaming up yet again to join forces on the Jay and Silent Bob reboot. While we’re in a period where everyone is making reboots of classic shows, this is one is going to take a different approach and essentially make fun of reboots.
“Jay and Silent Bob find out that Hollywood is making a reboot of that old movie that they had made about them, and they have to go cross the country to Hollywood to stop it all over again,” Smith recently explained of the film on an episode of his Fat Man On Batman podcast. “It’s literally the same fucking movie all over again. It’s a movie that makes fun of sequels and remakes and reboots while being all three at the same time.”
As for the duo, Smith started his most recent Instagram post about the film saying that the movie will answer the question of how high. It was a must for him to grab these two and he said how, even with the craziness of a shoot, they were picture perfect. It’s clear that some actors, and people, just have chemistry.
“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!”
You can read the full Instagram post below that contains details on a couple of catch-phrase words as well as Smith describing their single take was one of the top ten memorable moments in his entire career.

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
