THE HOLIDAY

JACK BLACK (Miles) first came to widespread recognition as the sarcastic music store worker in the Stephen Frears comedy High Fidelity. In 2003, Black received a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Actor category for his performance in School of Rock. Black played a failed rock musician who masquerades as a substitute teacher at a private school in the hit comedy directed by Richard Linklater and written by Mike White.

The following year, Black produced and starred in the hit comedy Nacho Libre directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) and written by Mike White, Jared Hess and Jerusha Hess.

Black portrayed filmmaker and showman Carl Denham in Peter Jackson's 2005 epic King Kong, which also starred Naomi Watts, Adrien Brody, Andy Serkis and Colin Hanks. He provided the voice of Lenny in the 2004 animated feature Shark Tale, which also featured vocal performances from Will Smith, Angelina Jolie, Renée Zellweger and Robert De Niro.

The multi-faceted Black is lead singer of the rock-folk comedy group Tenacious D, which he created with friend Kyle Gass. The band had a variety series on HBO in 1999. Their 2001 self-titled debut album was quickly certified gold. Tenacious D recently starred in their first feature film, Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny.

Black's previous screen credits include the Barry Levinson comedy Envy with Ben Stiller, the Farrelly brothers' Shallow Hal, which also starred Gwyneth Paltrow, Orange County from director Jake Kasdan and writer Mike White, Saving Silverman with Jason Biggs and Steve Zahn and the independent drama Jesus' Son with Billy Crudup. He made his feature film debut in 1992 for director Tim Robbins in Bob Roberts.

Black recently wrapped production in Michel Gondry's Be Kind Rewind and the untitled Noah Baumbach Project. Both films, in which Black has lead roles, will be released in 2007.
