Jack Black stopped by “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to chat with the Emmy-winning talk show host about his upcoming Universal Pictures film “The House with a Clock in Its Walls.” Fallon gave a shout out to Black’s Grammy-winning band Tenacious D, who has a new album dropping and upcoming tour dates, starting next month.
Fallon surprised Black by bringing out one of the actor and singer's favorite toy instruments, the Sax-A-Boom, which he notably helped make popular during past Tenacious D shows. Fallon asked him if he could play it, and in true "School of Rock" fashion, he happily obliged and delivered an epic performance, while The Roots joined in. (Check it out in the video embedded above).
As previously reported, Jack Black recently received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and will kick off a Tenacious D tour on Nov. 3 at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, New York (Tickets). The tour precedes the release of the comedy duo’s new album, which is due out this year and marks their first new album release their 2012 album Rise of the Fenix.
