Jay and Silent Bob Reboot: Kevin Smith Confirms Matt Damon's Return as Loki

Years ago, Kevin Smith put religion square in his comedic crosshairs with his film Dogma. As one of the deepest, most thought out movies of his career with thematic elements that pushed the boundaries from his previous works, it still remains one of the best of his entire catalog. Now, the director has confirmed what we heard rumblings about yesterday. He has posted via Instagram that his good friend Matt Damon will be returning for the upcoming Jay and Silent Bob Reboot as the fallen angel, Loki. 

If you’ve seen the @jayandsilentbob trailer (link in my bio) then you know #mattdamon came back! Matty was part of the fun in #jayandsilentbobstrikeback so when we started #JayAndSilentBobReboot, we reached out to Matt to see if he wanted to return to the scene of the crime. When he confirmed, I started thinking about how to best use good Will Hunting and which role he could play. Then @jenschwalbach suggested “Why don’t you use him as Loki?” I scoffed like a hardcore Kevin Smith fan, replying “I can’t play with Loki. Loki died.” Jen smiled and said “Well it’s a good thing you don’t know the writer, or else you might be able to change your idea.” And just like that, my wife made the movie better. I asked costume designer @ruckusaurus to put together a Loki-looking ensemble, found a church, and broke out my life size Dogma action figure. And with that, I was able to do mini-sequels to *all* my #viewaskew flicks in the middle of #jayandsilentbobreboot! Wanna see how it all comes together? Check out our @fathomevents Sneak Preview screenings on October 15th and 17th or come watch the flick with me and @jaymewes when the @jayandsilentbob Reboot Roadshow hits a theater near you! #KevinSmith #goodwillhunting #90skids #viewaskewniverse
