It’s the funny man’s birthday (August 28)! Believe it or not, his first name isn’t Jack, that’s actually his middle name. The actor’s real first name is Thomas. He first acted at 13 for a TV commercial for the video game Pitfall. Since then, he has made us laugh and even cry…he actually has serious acting chops.
Here are 8 of our favorite (Thomas) Jack Black scenes that made us laugh.
- School Of Rock
We all wished that Jack Black was our music teacher!
- Nacho Libre
His views on stretchy pants give us life.
- High Fidelity
There can’t be a list about Jack Black without having one scene of him dancing. Fair warning: there’s strong language!
- The Holiday
Get schooled on movie soundtracks and catch a cameo of Dustin Hoffman. What more could you want from a scene?
- Orange County
We still wish that someone would create those shirts and hats he invented.
- Tropic Thunder
His character, Jeff Portnoy had way to many good scenes to only pick one.
- Saving Silverman
Jack Black and Neil Diamond? We are in love!
- Year One
The way he says, “fetch” gets us every time.
