Reuters – ‘Kung Fu Panda’ and ‘Jumanji’ actor Jack Black jokingly announced his retirement on Tuesday (September 18) as he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
At a ceremony attended by previous colleagues including Tim Robbins, Richard Linklater, Mike White and Tenacious D. star Kyle Gass, Black said “I thought no-one was going to come to my stupid thing and you all came. Look at all, you beautiful people. Thank you for the love. And I’ve wanted one of these things for so long since I was a kid. Oh man. If you get one of the stars on the sidewalk, that means you’ve made it and I finally feel like I’ve grasped that sweet brass ring and then the question ‘Where do we go now?’. In the immortal words of Axl Rose, ‘Where do we go now?'”
He added “I’m here to announce my retirement. No. I got the thing. I got the thing. Why continue? Once you get the thing… I made it. I have made it and I’m going to focus on diet and exercise.”
Black is currently starring opposite double Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett in the Eli Roth directed ‘The House With A Clock In Its Walls,’ made shapes with Roth as he posed for photographs on the star.
Black, primarily known for comedies, has starred in such films as ‘Shallow Hal’, ‘King Kong’ and ‘Tropic Thunder’. He is also the lead vocalist of the musical group Tenacious D.
