Black's Hoffman Rivalry
Funnyman JACK BLACK has blasted Oscar winner PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN for "stealing" his dream film roles. The SCHOOL OF ROCK star, 36, would love the chance to appear in serious Hoffman films like CAPOTE, COLD MOUNTAIN and ALMOST FAMOUS. Black says, "I call him my arch enemy just 'cos he stole all the parts I auditioned for. "He's just a little bit better. But he'll never take my comedy crown."
