Jack Black on his Muppets Role


As production moves forward on Walt Disney Pictures’ The Muppets, EW was able to catch up with Jack Black and ask him some questions about his cameo role.

“I will be playing myself,” Black told the site on the red carpet of his new movie Gulliver’s Travels, “It’s kind of like ‘Being John Malkovich.’ It is a new twist on the Muppets. Very cerebral and meta.”

No stranger to meta cameos, Black previously applied a post-modern approach to playing himself when he guest-starred in an episode of “The Office” in 2009, appearing in a fake film trailer that the cast viewed throughout the episode.
