KUNG FU PANDA 2

JACK BLACK (Po) had a busy 2010 holiday season releasing the widely anticipated remake of "Gulliver's Travels” for 20th Century Fox in December. Black, who produced the film, starred as Lemuel Gulliver opposite Academy Award®-nominated Emily Blunt, Jason Segel and Amanda Peet. Currently in its fourth month of release, the film has grossed more than $218 million worldwide.

Black will gear up for a busy fall as he is scheduled to release "The Big Year” with Academy Award® winner Anjelica Huston and a comedy super cast of Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, Jim Parsons, Rashida Jones and Joel McHale in October for 20th Century Fox. He can also be seen in the Thanksgiving release of "The Muppets,” written by his "Gulliver's” co-star, Jason Segel, for Disney.

Most recently, Black finished filming "Bernie,” collaborating once again with his "School of Rock” director, Richard Linklater. Black stars as a small-town funeral director who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a wealthy widow (Shirley MacLaine) in small-town Texas. When she dies unexpectedly, he goes to great lengths to create the illusion she is still alive. Linklater, who also co-wrote the script with Skip Hollandsworth, will release the film for Columbia Pictures in 2011.

In 2009, Black voiced video game character Eddie Riggs (modeled after him) in the widely popular "Brutal Legend.” The game follows roadie (Riggs) into a fantasy world of heavy metal. Black was nominated and won for Best Voice at the Spike Video Game Awards in 2009. The year 2008 was very busy for Black, starting with lending his voice to the lead animated character of Po in DreamWorks Animation's "Kung Fu Panda.” Opening in June, the film earned more than $633 million worldwide.

Black was back on top of the box office charts in August for the Paramount release of "Tropic Thunder.” Directed and written by Ben Stiller, who also starred in the film, Black was joined by the star-studded cast Robert Downey Jr., Jay Baruchel, Brandon T. Jackson, Tom Cruise and Matthew McConaughey. The film was Number One in the box office for two straight weeks and has earned over $110 million domestically.

Being Number One is nothing new for Black. In September 2003, he proved his box office draw with a Number One opening for Paramount Pictures, "School of Rock,” from producer Scott Rudin, and writer Mike White. In the film, Black received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. The next year Jack reunited with White to release "Nacho Libre,” which marked the first production under Black & White Productions, formed in late 2004 by White and Black.

In December 2005, Black was seen in the highly anticipated cinematic blockbuster and Academy Award®-winning film, "King Kong.” Directed by Peter Jackson, the film opened at Number One and remained on top for three weeks in a row, and grossed over $540 million worldwide.

Black's other screen credits include the comedies "Bob Roberts,” "High Fidelity,” "Saving Silverman,” "Shallow Hal,” "Orange County,” "Envy,” "Shark Tale,” "The Holiday,” 2000's independent drama "Jesus' Son” and 2007's drama "Margot at the Wedding.”

Fans also know Black as the lead singer of the rock-folk comedy group Tenacious D, which he created with friend Kyle Gass. Their self-titled album was released in the fall of 2001 with Epic Records and was quickly certified at gold-selling status. The band had a variety series on HBO that aired in 1999. The duo completed their first feature "Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny” for New Line Cinema, which released in November 2006.

Following "Pick of Destiny,” two documentaries were released in relation to the film. The first, directed and produced by Black, entitled "The Making of ‘The Pick of Destiny,'” reveals a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film. The second, "D Tour: A Tenacious Documentary,” focuses on the band's world tour in support of their film and soundtrack.

Black currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Tanya, and their two sons.
