The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman makes a cameo in the Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) attend ‘Hollywood Chronic Con’, where they confront Kirkman to avenge the deaths of Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Glenn (Steven Yeun).
During a panel for Kirkman, a fan asks how The Walking Dead ends and Kirkman says that Carol (Melissa McBride) “actually eats” Daryl (Norman Reedus).
Asked if that means Carol dies and turns into a flesh-eating walker, Kirkman says, “Uh, no, she just eats Daryl. Oh, f—k. Spoilers. I’m really sorry about that.”
Without warning, Jay and the mostly-mute Bob pop up and subject Kirkman to a painful “purple nurple,” where Kirkman says, “F—k! What the f—k was that for?”
“That’s for killing Glenn and Carl!” Jay yells, backed by a snarling Silent Bob. Defeated, Kirkman says, “Fair enough.”
For Smith, who is an avid Walking Dead fan and has also appeared multiple times on Talking Dead, this was a way to tie in his friendship with Kirkman and one of his favorite shows. Smith, who suffered a near-fatal heart attack in 2018, said that he knew he had to do the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Smith said he “had no f—king regrets,” but he did have “this one sense of, ‘Oh, man, I wish we had made Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.’”
