In an upcoming episode of The Flash titled Null and Annoyed, frequent guest director Kevin Smith will step in front of the camera for a small cameo with his friend Jason Mewes.
Smith is no stranger to The Flash, directing episodes such as Killer Frost and The Runaway Dinosaur. However, instead of directing the action from behind the camera this time, he will be getting filmed in a small cameo appearance with his friend Mewes. This was revealed on his podcast Fatman on Batman where Kevin explained how he got the cameo in the first place:
“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?’”
However, despite this role being fairly small, Smith as very hesitant in taking it. This is for one key reason that he revealed shortly after first explaining his cameo:
“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.’”
Taking the role, despite having to wear pants, it seems as if it is going to mirror the duo’s relationship in the Jay and Silent Bob series. While the titular characters won’t be making an actual appearance, Smith admitted that he doesn’t talk, but Mewer does.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West and Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West/Kid Flash.
The Flash Season 4 continues next Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
