Jack Black had a hilarious and action-packed appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, where he discussed his role in the popular Kung Fu Panda franchise. The talk show host, Jonathan Ross, kicked off the interview by acknowledging Black as the “king of comedy,” highlighting his iconic performances in movies like School of Rock and Tropic Thunder.

Black, who is known for his energetic and comedic style, didn’t disappoint the audience with his appearance on the show. As they delved into talking about Kung Fu Panda 3, Black shared his excitement about being part of a successful franchise and the love he received for his character, Po, the panda.

In Kung Fu Panda 3, Po embarks on a new adventure where he meets his biological father, creating comedic friction with his adopted father. Additionally, Po has to become a teacher to a group of baby pandas, teaching them the ways of kung fu in order to protect themselves from a new evil villain. Black cheekily mentioned that his favorite villain so far was Donald Trump, adding a touch of humor to the conversation.

The actor also touched on real-life politics, expressing his faith in the voting public and his hope for change in the upcoming election. He jokingly mentioned that if things didn’t go as expected, he might have to “move somewhere or mount the resistance.”

Talking about the plot of Kung Fu Panda 3, Black revealed that Po discovers the existence of a secret village of pandas, contradicting his belief that he was the last panda on Earth. Drawing parallels to the film Gorillas in the Mist, he humorously referred to this revelation as “pandas in the mist.”

Ross, showing off his enthusiasm for Black’s skills, asked if the actor had mastered any martial arts moves. Black confidently listed the different martial arts he had learned since childhood, including Karate, Judo, and Kung Fu. Demonstrating his skills, he showcased a move which involves twisting the fist at the last second, creating an impactful punch.

The conversation turned towards the star-studded cast of Kung Fu Panda 3, with Black mentioning the presence of Angelina Jolie, who plays the tiger lady in the film. He amusingly shared that he attends Easter egg hunts at Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s place every Easter, despite being Jewish.

Another iconic figure that Black had the chance to meet during the promotion of the film was the legendary Jackie Chan. He described the experience of finally meeting Chan, whom he admired for years. Unfortunately, Black couldn’t show off his masterful martial arts skills to Chan during their meeting, but he did mention that Chan was aware of his proficiency in different forms of martial arts.

Switching gears to his personal life, Black spoke about his two young boys, Sammy and Tommy. Tommy, who attends a martial arts class called Young Ninjas, occasionally surprises Black with surprise attacks to his groin. Black joked about the importance of martial arts practitioners learning not to target sensitive areas, especially when it comes to their fathers.

Jonathan Ross then brought up the topic of Black’s versatile acting career, asking if there was a side of him that desired to take on more serious roles. Black explained that before his breakthrough in comedy, he had dabbled in various roles in theater and school. He mentioned that he still occasionally takes on darker roles, jokingly attributing it to his “evil face” and expressive eyebrows.

To add a final touch of entertainment to the interview, Ross challenged Black to a marshmallow-eating competition, inspired by a scene in Kung Fu Panda 3. The two men took turns stuffing as many marshmallows into their mouths as possible, leading to a messy and hilarious display of their competitive spirit.

Overall, Jack Black‘s appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show was full of humor, energy, and insights into his role in Kung Fu Panda 3. The interview showcased Black’s comedic talents and left the audience eagerly anticipating the release of the film.
