KUNG FU PANDA Star Goes HAM on Korean Game Show
Jack Black is no stranger to getting a little crazy for a laugh. From highly opinionated record store clerk Barry Judd in HIGH FIDELITY, to SCHOOL OF ROCK’s rock diehard (and occasional substitute teacher) Dewey Finn, to his role in the comedy metal band Tenacious D, Black has endeared to fans with his distinctive M.O.: a blend of warmhearted soul and a dynamite, over-the-top demeanor. Rarely is there a dull moment when Black’s on screen.
Off screen, Black’s fun-loving je ne sais quoi has always seemed like the real deal, too. There’s little doubt Black knows how to have a good time, and have a good time he did when placed on South Korea’s popular INFINITE CHALLENGE TV series in January. As KUNG FU PANDA 3 released in Korea, Black stopped by the game show for some friendly competition.
Ultimately, the contest descended into a marshmallow eating bout, with Black furiously stuffing marshmallows into his mouth in a frenzy. Naturally, he emerged victorious in the eat-off. Turns out, Black had more than one reason to celebrate his trip to Korea: KUNG FU PANDA 3 debuted atop the Korean box office.
