Hope that's really the case.

Thought it was pretty terrific, in an understated way. In the end credits, the theater seemed genuinely shocked that the vast majority of the cast was made up of real life denizens.

I'm going to see The D at Brixton Academy in the UK on June 7th. Can't wait. Yeah JB does seem to be really laid back and not full of himself unlike so many other hollywood actors

comes off as a genuine one

He does come across like a genuine guy. I give his stuff a shot but I just can't get into his work. He over does it like Sandler and that stupid baby voice crap. School of Rock, the Nickelodeon awards and the cartoons - he makes stuff that a lot of little kids really dig. And really the whole message of "SoR" encouraging kids with music I dug, even though I didn't care for the film all that much. But he did do "Pick of Destiny" and if you're a musician you'll laugh your ass off. Anyone who can get/got Dio (RIP) to perform in his film gets a pass from me.

Tenacious D's last couple albums (and movie) have been mediocre but their first album and other early songs like 'Jesus Ranch', Cosmic Shame', etc are fucking amazing...lots of respect for Jack Black.

First saw them live at Amoeba Records in San Francisco. Waited in line and they signed my Tenacious D poster. They couldn't have been more awesome and nice, especially since they seemingly stayed to sign everyone's stuff.

I'm just gonna do some cock push-ups while you do.

See if he thinks he could have done a better job than Ryan Reynolds.

Right now he's Chris Farley without the drugs and about a hundred pound lighter. He knows this as was seen in The Fatties clip from Tropic Thunder. I think I watched 20 minutes of that before turning it off. The problem I have with Black is 90 percent of his characters are just self absorbred jerks. He's probably not like that, but it just puts out this negative vibe that I really don't want to pay money to see. I would really love to see him get into other projects.

He just doesn't give a shit. The new D album is insane though.

I will be seeing BERNIE this week

Glad to see AICN covering it. My fav JB film, and one of Linklater's best. The 'greek chorus' from East Texas does not disappoint.

Certainly not a bad actor, by any means. Has that sort of vibe you get from a funny guy, a genuine funny guy.
