    After high-profile roles in commercial fare such as “School Of Rock,” “Nacho Libre” and “The Big Year,” Jack Black has tapped into a series of smaller and more idiosyncratic opportunities, starting with Richard Linklater’s true-crime dramedy “Bernie.&r...

    Watch: Jack Black Runs For Office In Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks Video For 'Senator'

    As the 2012 presidential race is just getting heated up, who better than Jack Black and indie rock oldies the Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks to remind us that the candidates are generally much more raw (perhaps not this raw) than their public personas they spend so much time massaging.

    Would We Have Been Better Off With Robert Smigel's Version Of 'Green Lantern' Starring Jack Black?

    Hal Jordan Conjured Up Superman & 5 More Things You Need To Know About The Unmade Comedic ScriptBefore Ryan Reynolds put on the CGI suit as Hal Jordan in "Green Lantern," the franchise was eyeing a completely different direction. Way back in 2004 Robert Smigel -- best known for his TV Funhouse shorts on "Saturday Night Live" and the creator and voice of Triumph The Insult Comic Dog -- had penned a comedic take on the character that had Jack Black set to star. In that incarnation, Black would've played a reality TV star who gets chosen to wear the power ring with comedic results. Needless to says, fans weren't so hot on this idea and while tha...

    Today In Unexpected Pairings: Jack Black & Michael Winterbottom Teaming For Comedy 'Bailout'

    Nothing quite gives a movie star a kick up the ass like two high-profile critically-eviscerated box office flops in a row, and the diminishing returns in Jack Black's career since "School of Rock," aside from the occasional gem like "Margot at the Wedding" and "Tropic Thunder," seemed to reach a trough in the last couple of years with "Year One" and "Gulliver's Travels." Fortunately, the actor seems to have taken stock -- birdwatching comedy-drama "The Big Year," with Owen Wilson and Steve Martin, is faintly promising, and he's reteamed with Richard Linklater on the dark comedy "Bernie," opposite Shirley MacLaine and fellow comeback-kid Matth...
