Personal Quote:

The Jay character is kind of based on who Jason was when he was about 14 years old. In the movies he's a bit more well spoken than he was at that age. Silent Bob - there is no affiliation to myself. I needed a guy to stand next to Jay and not say much, being that Jason was going to be saying a lot. - on resemblances between real life and his characters. See more »

Trivia:

Was approached by Dimension chairman Bob Weinstein to do a Jay and Silent Bob/Hellraiser crossover movie in the same vein as the old Abbott and Costello meets the Wolfman type crossovers. Smith declined. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently references Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) and its sequels, John Hughes movies, Steven Spielberg movies, Degrassi High (1987), and comic books. See more »
