Jack Black's 17 Best Movie Roles

With over 40 films under his belt, Jack Black has quite the resume.

He made his film debut as a political groupie in 1992's "Bob Roberts." He was also Sean Penn's brother in "Dead Man Walking," the head of "The Nasties" in "The Neverending Story III," and target practice for Bruce Willis in "The Jackal."

But none of those roles made a mark: It's his wild child rock persona we loved in "School of Rock" and "High Fidelity," not to mention his teddy-bear soft side in "The Holiday" and the movies that prove he can more than hold his own as a dramatic actor. (Insert off-color joke here.)

In honor of Black's birthday, raise your goblet of rock to toast his 17 best movie roles.

30 Movies Turning 30 in 2014

There's always a time and place for nostalgia, but when it comes to movies from the 1980s, it goes beyond that. Throughout the decade, we hit cinematic milestone after cinematic milestone, with franchises being born that still resonate and fuel the box office today, some three decades removed. We can look at 2014 and see some good movies on the horizon. But when we look back at a year like 1984, its breathtaking to see how many seminal pieces of pop culture were born into existence. 1982 is sometimes called the greatest year for genre movies of all time, with an eye on science fiction. But 1984 goes maybe a step beyond that. These 12 months were jam packed with truly timeless classics. You may be awestruck staring at what came exactly 30 years ago. Nothing has quite topped it for sheer year-round, non-stop entertainment. These are 30 great movies that are turning 30 in 2014!

Apropos of nothing: Sequels you had no idea existed, from 'Ace Ventura 3' to 'Air Bud 8'

Bless you, direct-to-dvd industry, for churning out endlessly amusing extensions of movies that never should have been franchises in the first place. An EW staffer casually mentioned the third Ace Ventura movie earlier today, inspiring a group of us to reminisce about the most random sequels we could think of — sequels many of us were hearing about for the first time.

And so, in honor of both these little-discussed gems and the gift that is Friday afternoon, here’s a list of the genre’s most unassuming entries. Caution: It’s about to get all nostalgic up in here. (Like that’s a surprise.

Before They Were Famous… They Were in The X-Files

Gary Collinson with a selection of star names who made an early 'before they were famous' appearance in The X-Files...

Over the past few months I’ve been revisiting Chris Carter’s classic science fiction TV series The X-Files on DVD and besides jogging my memory as to just how good of a pairing David Duchovny’s Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson’s Dana Scully made, I’ve found myself surprised at the number of famous faces who’ve cropped up across the series’ nine-season run.

Now I’m not talking about those guest stars who were already firmly established (or pretty much on their way) by the time they made an appearance – the likes of Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead), Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest), R. Lee Ermey (Full Metal Jacket), David Faustino (Married… with Children), Terry O’Quinn (The Stepfather), Burt Reynolds (Deliverance), Kurtwood Smith

Votd: 25 Actors Before They Were Famous, in 3 Minutes

Votd: 25 Actors Before They Were Famous, in 3 Minutes
[1] I've always had this fascination with seeing current rich and famous figures in their humble beginnings, and the success of tabloid columns and webpages devoted to that very topic suggest I'm not the only one. When some A-list faces are as familiar to us as those of our actual loved ones, seeing long-ago photos or videos of them is amusing in the same way that seeing pictures of your friends as little kids is amusing. "Before They Were Famous: 25 Actors in 3 Minutes" collects some especially amusing snippets of today's biggest stars, including Angelina Jolie, Ryan Gosling, Jack Nicholson, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, in some of their earliest acting gigs. Watch the video after the jump. They're not all first-time roles -- I'd argue that Seth Rogen in Donnie Darko hardly counts as even a pre-fame role, as he'd already starred in Freaks & Geeks by then -- but the clips collected here

Interview With Jeff Lieberman (Squirm, Satan's Little Helper, Just Before Dawn) - The Faces Of Indie Horror Month

Jeff Lieberman is a writer, producer, and director that has worked in the genre numerous times (Blue Sunshine, Squirm, Satan's Little Helper, Just Before Dawn, Remote Control) and outside of the genre including kid friendly fare like The Neverending Story III. Lieberman is a director that is all about the mood and atmosphere and uses that to create heart stopping suspense. Most of his films might not be the most familiar, but he has done a solid job right down the line on every single film. If anything, he can be counted on for consistency even if he works infrequently.

Who is Jeff Lieberman and what is he all about?

I usually leave it to others to speculate what I'm 'all about.' Outside of my work credits, from horror genre movies like 'Squirm' 'Blue Sunshine' 'Just Before Dawn' 'Remote Control' 'Satan's Little Helper' and numerous non genre more mainstream credits,
