BE KIND REWIND
JACK BLACK has appeared in many motion pictures, but it was his scene-stealing performance as John Cusack's sarcastic music store employee in Stephen Frears's acclaimed comedy High Fidelity that cemented his place in the hearts of audiences.
In September 2003, Black proved his box-office draw with a # 1 opening for Paramount Pictures - School of Rock from producer Scott Rudin, director Richard Linklater and writer Mike White. Black received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy.
In December 2005, Black was seen in director Peter Jackson's cinematic blockbuster King Kong, joining a cast that included Naomi Watts, Adrien Brody, Andy Serkis and Colin Hanks.
Black most recently was seen co-starring in Noah Baumbach's Margot at the Wedding opposite Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Jason Leigh. He starred in and produced the box-office smash Nacho Libre, directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite); and in the ensemble comedy, The Holiday, directed by Nancy Meyers and also starring Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz and Jude Law.
Black will next lend his voice to the title role of Dreamworks Animation's Kung Fu Panda, which will be released in theaters on June 6th, 2008. He recently completed shooting the Ben Stiller-directed feature Tropic Thunder for Dreamworks in Hawaii. In January he begins filming Year One for director Harold Ramis and Sony.
As the lead singer of the rock-folk comedy group Tenacious D, which he created with friend Kyle Gass, Black starred in the 2006 feature film Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny. Their self-titled album was released in 2001 and quickly certified at gold-selling status.
His screen credits also include the Farrelly brothers' Shallow Hal opposite Gwyneth Paltrow. Jake Kasdan's Orange County and Jesus's Son with Billy Crudup. Black made his feature film debut in Tim Robbins' Bob Roberts.
