Jack Black To Host Mtv Video Music Awards

The last time Jack Black hosted a major event in New York, he was upstaged by a giant ape. When it was announced Thursday that he will host the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards from Radio City Music Hall on Aug. 31, Black said he plans to control "the thunder." In a statement released by MTV, Black was quoted as saying. "I've got my top men working on it as we speak in my thunder laboratory. Radio City Music Hall will never be the same." Besides starring in King Kong, Black has also appeared in such music-oriented films as School of Rock and High Fidelity and will next be seen in Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny in November. He starred this year in the hit comedy Nacho Libre. MTV President Christina Norman said, "Jack Black is the perfect mix of comedy, rock, irreverence, and star-power that will set the tone for an amazing show."
