Is Jack Black quitting acting?!

2016-02-13 18:00

Los Angeles - Jack Black has hinted he may quit acting.

The School of Rock star admits he has had a good run playing a wide variety of characters in his long-standing acting career but feels he is back to square one.

He said: "One movie left, and then it's goodnight everybody ... At the beginning I was so thrilled to have a part, that first big great part in High Fidelity opened up the universe to me, and I was getting all these offers, and then I did a few other films and then I did School of Rock, and that was where all the planets aligned and that was the best possible situation."

However, from then on, the 46-year-old actor and comedian admits he became "bored" of starring in the same type of role.

He added to the Huffington Post newspaper: "And then you start going 'Ok, I've already done that kind of thing, I've done the loveable loser, I'll do another loveable loser, I'll do this and that,' and then you say, 'I don't want to do another loveable loser, just because I'm bored of it,' so then you start narrowing things down and saying no more and more, until I arrive at this place, where I've done so many things, it keeps on narrowing the things I want to do that are left."
