Kevin Smith, who recently suffered a near fatal heart attack, revealed on the Fatman on Batman podcast that he will be appearing on an upcoming episode of The Flash alongside his long time buddy, Jason Mewes, with the duo set to play security guards.
“I guess I can spoil it here. At one point, like you know, I did my first episode of Flash, and they asked Jason Mewes to be in the episode. He was up in Vancouver, so I was like ‘He’s always by my side, so he’ll be there anyway, absolutely.’ So this time around, there’s a scene that had two security guards in it, and so the writers of the episode, Kristen and Lauren, asked me specifically. ‘We’re wondering, do you and Jay want to play the security guards?’”
“And honestly, I did not want to do it, because I knew it required that I wear pants. Like, there’s only so far in the world that I can take [my usual] outfit, and believe me, I’ve stretched it to its limit. …But I knew if I was playing a part, where I wasn’t being me, I had to be the security guard. I couldn’t be the security guard in jorts. They probably would cut that. So I knew I’d have to wear an outfit and sh*t, which included pants. So I was like ‘Oh f*ck, I don’t wanna do it.’ But I knew if I said no, I’d never hear the end of it from [Jay]. Cause he’d go ‘We had a chance to be on a f*cking Flash together, and you didn’t f*cking take it!’ So I said ‘Alright, we’ll do it.’ “And they suited us up like security guards. And for the first time, I think since my father died, I wore dress pants. So we shot a scene, Jason and I, where we play two security guards in The Flash. And it’s not Jay and Silent Bob, but Jason speaks and I don’t. So there you go.”
Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes will appear on The Flash episode titled, “Null and Annoyed,” with the air date to-be-announced.
Smith also seems to be recovering from his heart attack as updates on his social media pages indicate he is making appearances for the Jay & Silent Bob Get Old tour and Hollywood Babble-On events.
