As filming continues on Jay & Silent Bob Reboot, Kevin Smith has offered another casting update on his return to the View Askewniverse, with the filmmaker revealing on Instagram that Joe Manganiello (Justice League), Justin Long (Tusk), Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine) and Frankie Shaw (SMILF) will all feature in the movie, along with producer Jordan Monsanto (the wife of Jason Mewes). Here they are, posing with Smith and Mewes…

Here come da’ Judge! @jayandsilentbob had to go to court yesterday with a comedic legal dream team that included a pair of #zackandmirimakeaporno veterans! On the bench was the honorable @mrcraigrobinson, who fought frigid Pittsburgh winter weather with me a decade ago to make a Porno. Speaking of Penguins country, Pittsburgh’s own @deathsaves Dungeon master Mister @joemanganiello was our Bailiff (with producer @jordanmonsanto playing his twin). The creator, star and director of my favorite show, @sho_smilf (as well as my costar in the #hollyweed pilot) @frankieshawisag joined us as the Prosecutor! And for the Defense – my @tuskthemovie brother-in-sewn-up-arms, the genius @therealstephenblatt as the Lawyer (who sounds an awful lot like a Bobby Long-less Brandon St. Randy)! Reboot looks like my extended family scrap book, with cameos from folks I’ve worked with for years (and a few famous folks I’ve never met before but am looking forward to making pretend beside). And these fine folks flew all the way to #nola the day before #mardigras to fling funny around and make my movie better. And since I know what they got paid, I’m relatively sure they didn’t do it for the meager money. There’s a lot of love in this photo (which more resembles the key art for a “Night Court” reboot than the actual scene we shot yesterday). I appreciate that love and send it right back to my fellow thespians for making the cross-country Reboot-y Call! #KevinSmith #jasonmewes #craigrobinson #justinlong #frankieshaw #joemanganiello #deathsaves #jayandsilentbobreboot #JayandSilentBob #JayandSilentBobStrikeBack #indiefilm #indiefilmmaking @dpronlevy @traceylandon @destrofilms @jaymewes @jayandsilentbob @jordanmonsanto @kylebonokaplan 📸 @saban_films @universalpictures @skitbags @hideoutpictures @legionmofficial
Smith has promised that Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will feature a host of familiar faces from the View Askewniverse – with Brian O’Halloran’s Dante Hicks and Jason Lee’s Brodie Bruce already confirmed – as well as cameos “from the worlds of movies, TV, music, and podcasting”. In addition to the above, Smith has previously revealed that The Flash stars Grant Gustin, Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanagh will appear, having worked with Smith on numerous occasions on their DC superhero show.
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will see the hapless stoners returning to Hollywood in an attempt to block a reboot of the Bluntman and Chronic film from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
