Jack Black Good news for you Jack Black fans—Jack will be hosting the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, airing on August 31st. Said Black of his hosting gig, “Prepare yourself for a rip snortin’ humdinger.” Ah, I love a good quote, and Jack seems to sum up all of the goodness in one small quip. The awards will air live from Radio City Music Hall in New York and will include performances by Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Panic! at the Disco and Ludacris. MTV President Christina Norman had her own succinct quote about Black’s hosting credentials, stating he is the “perfect mix of comedy, rock, irreverence and star power.” Black has been in a string of films, including School of Rock and the more recent release, Nacho Libre. His band, Tenacious D, will have a semi-autobiographical film coming out on November 17th. If you are a Jack Black fan, check out his work with Tenacious D—some absolutely hilarious stuff, although not for the faint of heart. I admit some of the content makes me blush, but I can still laugh through the embarrassment.
