An actor, musician and producer, Jack Black most recently starred as Bernie Tiede in Richard Linklater’s dark comedy Bernie. Hailed as “Brilliant” by The Los Angeles Times, Black co-stars with Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey in this true-life tale of murder in a small Texas town. Black is also the lead singer of the rock-comedy group Tenacious D, which he co-created with Kyle Gass. The duo recently released their third full-length album and completed a sold out world-wide tour. Black’s cumulative box-office grosses reach somewhere near a billion dollars having starred in such blockbusters as Kung Fu Panda films, Tropic Thunder and King Kong. His other screen credits include the comedies The School of Rock (for which he also teamed with Linklater and received a Golden Globe nomination), The Big Year, Nacho Libre, Bob Roberts, High Fidelity, Saving Silverman, Shallow Hal, Orange County, Envy, Shark Tale, The Holiday, as well as the independent dramas Jesus’ Son and Margot at the Wedding. Jack was a member of Tim Robbins’ experimental theatre group in Los Angeles, the Actors’ Gang, where he met Gass and later worked with Robbins where he made his feature film debut in Bob Roberts which Robbins directed.
