Jack Black does Office duty

Jack BlackIn the tradition of pulling out all the stops for post-Super Bowl TV, The Office has snagged funny man Jack Black to guest star in the hour long episode, reports Entertainment Weekly. Producers aren’t releasing details about Black’s appearance, but NBC released a news statement about the plot of the episode, which reads: “Some of the office workers try to secretly watch a bootlegged Hollywood movie during the workday. The movie stars Jack Black and other notable Hollywood actors.” Rumors are flying that one of these “other notable Hollywood actors” includes Jessica Alba. Sounds like a pretty good day at the office. The episode will air immediately following the Super Bowl broadcast on February 1st.

    ke, I am right there with you. Huge addict. I bought all the seasons and re-watch for a laugh. Jack Black is great too.
    curious – do you like A.Development/30 Rock or The Extras?

  5. ke • December 29, 2008 @ 9:12 PM

    Jo, i’ve never seen A.Dev. but I probably will soon. yes, i’m a big fan of 30 Rock (though not as much as The Office) and i loved Extras. i think ricky gervais is hilarious.
    On another note, i recommend Damages with Glenn Close. one of the best dramas on television.

    Wow! we must be on the same wavelength – I bought Damages last month but have yet to see it. I lent it to my sister and she loved it, so I will get into it once I finish my last night shift Jan 1st.

    I think highly of Gervais as well, I have both versions of The Office, the British and American and love them both.

    Two other good series are Rescue Me and Nip/Tuck.

    Try to pick up A.Dev., I would be interested to know what you think of it.

    I like Jack Black too, but I just can’t picture his sense of humour jiving with The Office type of “humour”. Just so different.
