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.

  • Often competes for the same parts with 'Philip Seymour Hoffman' (qv). On the _The School of Rock (2003)_ (qv) DVD audio commentary, he jokingly calls Hoffman "my nemesis."
  • Born on the same day as 'Jason Priestley' (qv).
  • Member of the band 'Tenacious D' (qv).
  • He and his wife, 'Tanya Haden' (qv), became the parents of a boy, Samuel Jason Black, on June 10th, 2006.
  • Auditioned for the role of "Cubby Barnes" in _Ransom (1996)_ (qv).
  • Huge fan of Professional Wrestling.
