Jack Black to Receive Comedic Genius Honor at MTV Movie and TV Awards

Posted 2022/05/27 14 0


The 2022 MTV Movie and TV Awards will honor comedy actor Jack Black with a Comedic Genius Award. Black will be only the fifth person to receive the award, which will be presented at this year’s ceremony that will be broadcast live on June 5, as someone who has made a significant contribution to comedy in their career. Having been known for movies such as School of Rock, Kung Fu Panda and the recent Jumanji movies, and providing a lot of entertainment via social media apps such as Tiktok, Black is very much deserving of the accolade.

Although it is hard to believe, Jack Black’s career has spanned almost four decades, and in that time, he has become known as one of the most competent comedy actors in the business, becoming a leading man in many movies over his time in the Hollywood A-list. As the latest recipient of the Comedic Genius Award, Black follows in the footsteps of Sacha Baron Cohen, last year’s recipient, Melissa McCarthy (2016), Kevin Hart (2015) and Will Ferrell (2013).

Of course, Black’s skills have not been restricted to acting, having toured the world with Tenacious D, a folk-rock group formed with Kyle Gass. The group has released four studio albums, including 2018’s Post-Apocalypto, two movies, a six-episode animated series, and other media. In addition to his all-out comedy work, Black has also starred in more serious roles, including the film Bernie, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination in 2013, and Peter Jackson’s King Kong.

Jack Black Is Returning To The Kung-Fu Panda Franchise

Like many movie franchises, Kung Fu Panda is branching out into the world of television with a brand new series entitled Kung-Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight, and Jack Black will be reprising his role as the voice of Po in the show. However, there have been no additional announcements of who else will be returning to the franchise with Black, or when the series will air, an official synopsis has been released below.

“Jack Black returns to Kung Fu Panda in the new series Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight. When a mysterious pair of weasels set their sights on a collection of four powerful weapons, Po must leave his home to embark on a globe-trotting quest for redemption and justice that finds him partnered up with a no-nonsense English knight named Wandering Blade. Together, these two mismatched warriors set out on an epic adventure to find the magical weapons first and save the world from destruction — and they may even learn a thing or two from each other along the way.”

The Dragon Knight will be the sixth installment in the Kung-Fu Panda franchise, following on from three movies, an NBC Holiday Special and the Nickelodeon series, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, and the Prime Video series Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny. This will be the first time Black has voiced Po in a series, with Mick Wingert taking over the role in both previous shows.
