Jack Black      

Actor, Comedian & Musician; Known for "School of Rock"

Actor, musician and comedian Jack Black was born Thomas Jacob Black on August 28, 1969, in Santa Monica, California. One of the more popular character actors of recent years, Black's acerbic wit and high-energy antics have made him a standard bearer for the Generation X demographic.

Black's breakthrough role was in "High Fidelity" (2000), and he soon co-starred opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in 2001's "Shallow Hal." His animated film project "Kung Fu Panda" scored big at the box office in 2008—the same year that Black appeared in the comedy "Tropic Thunder." In 2009, he starred in "Year One," and more recently appeared in "Kung Fu Panda 2," "The Big Year" and R.L. Stine's "Goosebumps."
