Jack Black

Powered by imdb

Jack Black was born Thomas Jacob Black in Santa Monica, California, to Judith Love (Cohen) and Thomas William Black, both satellite engineers. He is of British-German (father) and Russian Jewish (mother) ancestry. Black attended the University of California at Los Angeles. While at UCLA, he was a member of Tim Robbins's acting troupe and it was through this collaboration that led to his 1992 film debut in Bob Roberts. Although he was just a background voice in his first film, Jack's appearances in such television shows as The X-Files, his breakthrough performance in High Fidelity, and his rock-comedy band, Tenacious D, have created an ever-growing cult following.  See full bio on IMDb »
