When I first heard of Jack Black, I thought they were talking about Frank Black, the guy who used to sing with The Pixies and then did so solo stuff as well. But Jack Black has been in a variety of movies, some serious, some … well … not so serious.

I watched School Of Rock over Spring Break. Pretty funny. A role just ripe (and right) for him and his style. But it seems that he’s going to shift gears a little bit because he’s been cast in Peter Jackson’s (of Lord of the Rings infamy) remake of King Kong.

This should be interesting….(and no, he’s not playing the big ape.)
