Kevin Smith has joined forces with newcomer Chris Hemsworth as the Avengers star takes on the Jay and Silent Bob reboot.

Smith, who starred as Silent Bob in the cult 90s movies including Clerks and Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back, posted an adorable snap with his pal, writing a caption about the actor being such a newcomer to the industry.

Sometimes I like to highlight unknown actors in our industry – and I think *this* fresh face from young Hollywood might soon find fame and fortune on the Silver Screen! Kevin wrote.

Hes newcomer @chrishemsworth and Im predicting right here that Chris is gonna take Tinsel Town by storm one day!

The boy is like a god who thundered down from another universe! But its not some kinda dark world because this guy is no black hat – hes an artistic avenger whos just looking to book his first gig on the way to his ultimate endgame: a S.A.G. card!



So Im gonna take a chance on this up and coming charismatic kid from Australia and help him out on his star trek with a low key role in @jayandsilentbob Reboot.

He went on: Hes a killer comedic actor but I keep telling him that the *real* moneys in @marvelstudios movies. In a just world, hed get to at least screen test for them.

The 48-year-old added: Regardless, Ill keep you posted on Chris Hollywood progress. He should go far, because Chris is a super nice charmer whos crazy talented and incredibly generous with his time.

If you can get past the guys unorthodox looks, youll find a whole Hems worth of raw, untapped talent!

Meanwhile, the Marvel actor, who recently revealed hes not into the idea of saying goodbye to his character Thor, shared a string of similar photos, dubbing Kevin the man, the myth, the legend.

Details surrounding the reboot are pretty scarce, although Kevin has previously compared it to the original, saying that its literally the same f***ing movie all over again.

Sounds promising.
