Kevin provided IMDfrief casting news during his interview. Smith confirmed that actor Justin Long will appear in Reboot and implied that we’ve seen the character that he is playing before.

Justin Long first worked with Kevin Smith in his 2008 film Zach and Miri Make a Porno as adult film actor Brandon St. Randy. At first Kevin teased that if viewers enjoyed Long’s performance as Brandon St. Randy in Zach and Miri Make a Porno they would also like Long’s character in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. He then immediately confirmed that Long would be returning to the character of Brandon St. Randy for his Reboot role.

This will mark Justin Long’s fourth appearance in a Kevin Smith film, having also appeared in Smith’s “Canadian Trilogy” 2014 film Tusk and 2016’sYoga Hosers before joining the cast of Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.
