We know that writer/director Kevin Smith is currently getting ready to get to work on Jay & Silent Bob Get Rebooted and now we know that it’s not just the two main characters who will be returning from the world that Smith has built on film.

Now we know that Smith alumni Brian O’Halloran is coming back too.

O’Halloran starred in Smith’s first movie, Clerks, as the downtrodden Dante Hicks and returned in several movies such as Mallrats and Dogma, so he’s no stranger to what is known as the Viewaskiewniverse.

“Yes, I’m definitely going to be a part of that,” says O’Halloran, “We’re going to have a couple of very funny bits with the Kevin Smith characters that I’ve portrayed. I’ve portrayed a number of them at this point, so I think we’re going to bring a variety of them back.”

Smith had been planning on going back to the Clerks and Mallrats movies and it was likely O’Halloran was going to return as Dante, however with both those projects falling through, it looks like we’re getting O’Halloran back… will it be as Dante behind the counter of the Quick Stop that he and Randall Graves bought at the end of Clerks II.

Are you excited for the return of Jay, Bob and Dante?

Let us know… and we’ll keep you posted as more news comes along.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
