Neil Gaiman Twitter-Agrees To Star In Kevin Smith's Bluntman And Chronic

Neil Gaiman Twitter-Agrees To Star In Kevin Smith's Bluntman And ChronicYesterday, Kevin Smith tweeted;

Mr. @JayMewes is doing a BLUNTMAN & CHRONIC cartoon and we need an Alfred voice, all British and whatnot. It's gotta be you – @NeilHimself!

That would be Neil Gaiman, with whom Kevin Smith has enjoyed Twitter badinage in the past. Neil's response?

@ThatKevinSmith @JayMewes sure!

I believe that is legally binding, Twitter or no.

Bluntman & Chronic, stoner analogues of Batman and Robin first appeared as a fictional comic in Smith's Chasing Amy, and was intended to be the obligatory appearance of the Jay And Silent Bob characters, until they invaded the main plot later in the movie. Since then the comic has appeared for real, drawn by the likes of Mike Allred. Well, now it appears we are getting a cartoon…
