We learned that Jack discovered that he would do well in the entertainment industry when he was a child. They say that his acting skills were expressed through freeze-frame acting. This ability was fostered when his parents decided to enroll him in a special school for children who had difficulty coping with the normal school curriculum. Before that, Black appeared in a television commercial for a video game. That was in 1982 when he was just a teenager – he was 13 years old – and his parents decided to send him to a special school for children who could not cope with the normal curriculum.
As an actor, Mr. Black is known for numerous film and television roles. He is probably best known for his role as Master Po Ping in the Kung Fu Panda franchise or as Hal Larson in the romantic comedy Shallow Hal, filmed in 2001.

Jack Black Bio – Is He Dead?
Born as Thomas Jacob Black on August 28, 1969, in Santa Monica, California, Jack spent most of his early life in the beach town in Los Angeles County – Hermosa Beach. When his parents’ marriage broke up, ten-year-old Jack lived with his father Thomas William Black, but regularly visited his mother Judith Love, who worked as a satellite engineer with the Hubble Space Telescope.
Jack’s ethnic origins were identified as British-German on his father’s side and Russian-Jewish on his mother’s. The conversion of his father to Judaism gave Jack an identity in the Jewish faith. While attending a Hebrew school, he also attended Crossroads High School for the Arts and Sciences, the California Poseidon School in Santa Monica and the University of California, Los Angeles. In his second year at university, he dropped out of his studies to focus on building a career in the entertainment industry.
Black teamed up with Kyle Gass to form Tenacious D, a rock band group that gained popularity in the mainstream due to its comedic and satirical lyrics. In 2015 the band won a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance.

This was the latest incident in which rumors about Jack’s death circulated on the internet.

The only difference was that in the 2016 incident, a message about his death was posted on Tenacious D.’s official Twitter site. In short, the man is alive and well. The Twitter message was the work of some unknown villains.
