Now in its second year in Tampa Bay, MegaCon is taking the nostalgic route with its first celebrity guest announcement.

Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes, of Clerks fame, will bring their Jay and Silent Bob Get Old podcast to MegaCon Tampa Bay for a live recording.

Smith and Mewes will also be available for photo ops and autographs at the convention running Sept. 29-Oct. 1 at the Tampa Convention Center.

Smith hit big with the low-budget comedy Clerks, in which he wrote, directed, co-produced and acted as Silent Bob. Now he's known as a quintessential geek, owning his own comic book shop in New Jersey where he shoots his reality show Comic Book Men.

As the foul-mouthed other half of Jay and Silent Bob, Mewes performed alongside Smith in Clerks, Clerks II and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. He's also a co-executive producer on Smith's Hulu series Spoilers with Kevin Smith.

Tickets for MegaCon Tampa Bay start at $25 for single day passes and go on sale Thursday. Multi-day and premium passes are also available at megacontampabay.com.
