News on Jack Black, Dub Narcotic, Milky
Although Jack Black is riding high on the success of his new film "School of Rock," which was No. 1 in its first week in U.S. theaters, he says there are two roles he's really coveting. Black tells Billboard he'd love to play the title character in the forthcoming remake of "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and Ozzy Osbourne in the untitled biopic currently in development.
"No actor can play Ozzy better than I can," he says. "I was born to play Ozzy." Black even pleaded his case to Osbourne's wife, Sharon, when he appeared recently on her talk show.
Black is gearing up to begin work on the long-awaited film starring he and his Tenacious D bandmate Kyle Gass, "Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny." As previously reported, the group's "Complete Masterworks" DVD arrives Nov. 4.
