Casey Abrams and Jack Black Like 'Fat Bottomed Girls' on 'American Idol' Finale (VIDEO)

Jack Black & Casey Abrams, 'American Idol' finaleThroughout his time on 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) this season, Casey Abrams was always memorable and always a little ... unique. With his quirky sense of humor and no-holds-barred attitude on stage, there was really only one performer that could match him in personality and stage presence.

A lot of people don't realize that Jack Black first came into the public eye as one half of musical duo Tenacious D. The pair tackled Queen's 'Fat Bottomed Girls,' and it was as silly and fun as you'd expect.

We don't know if Abrams has any acting ability, but if he can bring the same kind of charisma and charm he brought to the stage every week, we could see him making fun spot appearances in comedy films. The performance also made us wish we could get a new Tenacious D project before too long.

Jack Black can rock out on stage and fill the big screen but lately he can't keep away from the tube as well.

Appearances on the 'The Office' plus the children's show 'Yo Gabba Gabba' were not enough. Now, Zap2it tells us, Black plans a January appearance on 'Community.'

The Daily Show: November 30, 2006

Jon StewartThis wasn't a particularly strong episode. Maybe I only feel this way because I was in a bad mood while watching the episode. I don't know. At least I laughed at the Popemobile within a Popemobile and the family of Vilsack ducks. Oh, speaking of Vilsack... I must praise the TDS writers for not going for a ballsack joke. It would have been easy. Too easy.

"Summit of All Fears": Bush met up wit Maliki again. So awkward.

SNL lines up three new episodes before New Year

tenacious dSaturday Night Live will have three new episodes, back-to-back, before breaking for the Christmas holiday. Here's the schedule of hosts and musical guests:
  • Matthew Fox & Tenacious D, December 2
  • Annette Bening & Gwen Stefani, December 9
  • Justin Timberlake, December 16
I may actually watch the Matthew Fox episode just because I'm curious to see how they make fun of Lost. Let's hope it's not a Q&A monologue with rabid Lost fans. That's too easy. Plus, Tenacious D is always a hoot. Hopefully we'll see Jack Black in a few sketches (He would make a great Hurley!) The Justin Timberlake episode also intrigues me just because he seems to be up for anything the SNL writers throw at him. I expect we'll see the SNL holiday special on the following Saturday, December 23rd.

The kids, they love Jack Black

jack black nickelodeonI'm guessing that we'll see the School of Rock version of Jack Black, rather than the Tenacious D version when he hosts Nickelodeon's 19th annual Kids' Choice Awards on April 1. I'm pretty sure F*** Her Gently isn't considered family-friendly. Black says of the honor, "I have a lot of secret plans for when I host the awards, but I can tell you I'm going to bring the super-duper, freaky-deaky, ultra-clowny super dance!" That man is going to drive those kids wild.

Voting begins on March 6 at Nickelodeon's website. A few nominees in the television category are after the jump, or you can check out the full list (including movies) here. Let's just say it ain't the Oscars. And that's OK.

SNL: Jack Black/Neil Young

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 19th 2005 6:56PM

Jack BlackWell this was a pleasant surprise. After the past few mediocre episodes (save for the handful of great sketches in last week's Baldwin explosion), I wasn't expecting much from this. Sure, Jack Black is great and all, but lately I've just come to expect to be disappointed from SNL. Fortunately, the writers put together a nice set of laughs (and a couple extra guests) which is a good thing since this is the last episode we're getting until Scarlett Johansson hosts on January 14th.
