Same as he ever was

Anyone who's seen Jack Black as Tenacious D will be completely unsurprised by his portrayal of Reed Richards-shtick-a-like Jack Austin in the pilot for Heat Vision & Jack, an utterly goofy send-up of the whole "hero fleeing from the evil government agency" genre. In this case the nemesis is Ron Silver, playing himself, as a superhuman villain in the employ of NASA, which wants the former astronaut back...or at least his solar-enhanced brain. Fox sat on this pilot for seven years, but it's finally loose on Viral Video. Can Original Video Asininity be far behind?

I have it on DVD so you could watch it on a real TV someday, if you'd ever like to borrow it.

I'd just wind up watching it on my laptop anyway, but thanks.

Word on the street is that Jack Black is currently working on adapting Heat Vision and Jack to a feature film format.

There have been movies inflicted on America that weren't half as silly - or half as entertaining. I'd probably go see it.
