Jack Black

His role in 'High Fidelity' (2000)
Wild-eyed and manically comic, Jack Black went from character actor in small roles in Mars Attacks (1996, directed by Tim Burton) and Enemy of the State (1998, with Will Smith), to stealing the show in High Fidelity (2000, starring John Cusack) and landing leading roles in Shallow Hal (2001, co-starring Gwyneth Paltrow), Orange County (2002) and School of Rock (2003). Black was also the star of Heat Vision and Jack (1999, with the voice of Owen Wilson), a tongue-in-cheek TV series directed by Ben Stiller that was made for Fox television but never broadcast. Black is also half of the rock duo Tenacious D, who briefly starred in their own HBO series (1999). In 2004 he co-starred with Stiller in Envy (directed by Barry Levinson).Source: answers.com
You must never underestimate the power of the eyebrow.More Jack Black quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm not thinking about forcing my kids to watch my movies. It's always awkward when someone says: "Hey, I wrote a song, can I play it for you?" That would be the dynamic, if I was like: "Hey, you're my son, watch my work!" I don't want to put them in that awkward position. Just because when they get older, that's when I'm worried, that they'll judge me and say: "Yeah, my father's [hand over mouth] Jack Black. He was in that cheesy movie." So, I'm going to keep it all high quality. It'll be a quality controller.More Jack Black quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't think of myself as a great improver. A lot of times there's long periods of silence when everyone in the recording studio is looking at their watch and waiting for me to say something. And I'm searching desperately in my brain for anything before something dribbles out.More Jack Black quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's a mistake to just go make a movie where the whole thing is talking down to the kids like, "Ok, we gotta bring the IQ of this movie down because it's a kids movie" You don't have to do that, kids can laugh and parents can laugh at different parts and that's fun, and you see that with all of the great kids movies.More Jack Black quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Funny songs, that’s my ticket. I can’t remember when it started or why it started, it’s just something that I NEEDED.More Jack Black quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
