Black Haunted By Hoffman

SCHOOL OF ROCK star JACK BLACK is tortured by Oscar-winning actor PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN because they compete for the same roles, and Hoffman always wins. Black insists he is happy with his comedic roles, but feels it would be easier to land an acclaimed dramatic part if he didn't face such stiff competition from the Best Actor Oscar-winner. He explains, "He's tormented me over the years because we're like a similar body type, but he's always been a little bit better than me. "I never saw him at an audition; I would just see him in the movie. "I wanted that part in BOOGIE NIGHTS; I wanted that part in HAPPINESS... (but) I'm a huge fan of his."
