As previously reported, former WWE Superstar and current AEW talent Chris Jericho was revealed as having a role in the upcoming Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Filmmaker Kevin Smith shared some more details on Jericho’s role in the film on Instagram, along with some new set photos with Jericho, Smith, and Jason Mewes. You can check those out below.

Smith wrote that Jericho’s role is a “scene stolen from some of the 80’s road movies” he grew up watching. He wrote:

“I was there when #y2jayandsilentbob happened! Chris Jericho joined the Jay and Silent Bob reboot last week in a scene stolen from some of the 80’s road movies I grew up watching! This was the first time Jason Mewes shared screen time with Chris Jericho but it’s the second time I’ve worked with the Fozzy frontman (the first being on the forthcoming horror anthology #killroywashere). And both times, this super sweet Canadian kid has been cast waaaaay against type. If I ever get to make another movie after this one, I told Chris he’s gonna be a good guy (maybe we’ll finally do that Canadian James Bond comedy we talked about on the podcast that one time). After today, we only have 8 shooting days left on @jayandsilentbob Reboot, which is basically the entire third act. I’ve got 40 minutes of the movie already edited and I’ll cut more this weekend. Thanks to @dpronlevy, the movie is way better than I even wanted it to be (Reboot is easily one of my best looking movies to date). And starting at noon, it’s all cameos all the time from here on out, as fresh famous faces join us every day until we wrap!”
