Jack Black’s Recent Projects
Most recently, Jack Black went back into the game with Jumanji: The Next Level, the sequel to 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Additionally, during his short-lived “retirement,” Black provided a cameo in Quibi’s Home Movie: The Princess Bride, as well as Netflix’s Waffles + Mochi. He can also be heard in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2. Additionally, away from acting, Black produced Happily. He was also the host and executive producer behind NBC’s Celebrity Escape Room special. As a musician, furthermore, Tenacious D provided a single for The Croods: A New Age. He and Kyle Gass also lent their hard-rocking chops to “Time-Warp: Tenacious D Rock-Y the Vote.”
Certainly, while the prolific actor-musician keeps himself busy, Jack Black reportedly wants to spend more time working close to home in order to stay near his family — particularly during his kids’ adolescent years. With that noted, it’s possible that Black will opt to stay away from major, world-spanning blockbusters in the years moving forward, but we’ll have to wait and see what this multi-talented actor has in store in the years to come.
