Rosario Dawson returns for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

Director Kevin Smith’s upcoming Jay and Silent Bob Reboot has added another character from the View Askewniverse. Rosario Dawson, who played Becky in Clerks II, will return for Reboot, as confirmed by one of Smith’s Instagram posts. In the photo, he’s still dressed as his character, Silent Bob. You can check out the photo in the player below.

Both Smith and Jason Mewes are reprising their title roles alongside other returning stars, and new faces, from their cinematic canon. Jay (Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) were first introduced as drug dealers hanging around outside the Quick Stop 25 years ago in Smith’s directorial debut, Clerks. They’ve continued to appear in Smith’s cinematic canon including MallratsChasing AmyDogmaJay and Silent Bob Strike Back and, of course, Clerks II, as well as the animated film Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie. The new movie will take jabs at reboots, remakes, and sequels while simultaneously being all three at the same time.

Dawson will also be seen in the upcoming Zombieland 2: Double Tap, will voice one of The Last Kids on Earth, and can be seen on The CW’s Jane the Virgin.

There are very few people I love in this business as much as @rosariodawson! So when Ro-Dawg Rebooted with us, I was reminded how she can take boring old Kevin Smith lines and make magic! Getting the always-in-demand Dawson into @jayandsilentbob Reboot required Ro to go above and beyond and take a few flights to get #neworleans. It would’ve been more than understandable if she couldn’t make it. But my friend made moves and interrupted her busy life and work schedule to come play with us in the #viewaskewniverse once again. I can honestly say she made the movie better! When she was wrapped, Rosario gave me this giant hug and said “I’m happy you’re still here.” This woman is who I aspire to be in life: a consummate professional and an incomparable human being. The only stain on her otherwise stellar resume is that she’s now played two #viewaskew characters. One more and they’ll kick her out of Hollywood. #KevinSmith #rosariodawson #jayandsilentbobreboot #clerks2 #friendship #sabanfilms
