BIOGRAPHY:

Jack Black was born in Santa Monica, California, and attended the University of California at Los Angeles. While at UCLA, he was a member of Tim Robbins (I)'s acting troupe and it was through this collaboration that led to his 1992 film debut in Bob Roberts (1992). Although he was just a background voice in his first film, Jack's appearances in such television shows as "The X Files" (1993), his breakthrough performance in High Fidelity (2000), and his rock-comedy band Tenacious D have created an ever-growing cult following.

  • His parents, who were both rocket scientists, divorced when Black was 10. His mother worked on the Hubble space telescope.
  • He and his wife eloped after dating less than a year. They were married in Big Sur, California by the same minister who performed 'Shane Stanley' (qv) and 'Val Barri' (qv)'s ceremony in 2005.
  • One of his closest friends is 'David Grohl' (qv).
  • Attended Crossroads High School for the Arts and Sciences.
  • Sang backup vocals for the songs in _Bob Roberts (1992)_ (qv).
  • Appears in a parody of the Council of Elrond scene shown during the MTV movie awards. Lord of the Rings director 'Peter Jackson (I)' (qv) later cast him in _King Kong (2005)_ (qv).

The Frat Pack name is a reference to the film _Old School (2003)_ (qv), which features Vaughn, Ferrell, and Wilson, due to the wide number of films featuring the seven actors. Black's "Frat Pack" films include _The Cable Guy (1996)_ (qv), _Envy (2004)_ (qv), and _Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)_ (qv).
