Trivia (4)

Son of Mel White. Until the early 1990s. Mel White was a speech and ghostwriter for such evangelical, far-right Christian figures as Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and Billy Graham.

He got his first impulse toward writing scripts from his favorite teacher in second grade, the mother of playwright Sam Shepard.
Isn't a fan of classic rock music. He wrote School of Rock (2003) specifically so Jack Black could perform his own favorite rock music.

Personal Quotes (1)

On Chuck & Buck: "The original nugget came from a scene early in the film where my character Buck grabs Chuck's balls. I thought it would be a real uncomfortable thing to start a movie off with a scene of a guy grabbing another guy's dick. Totally unrepentantly. Not like in your typical Dumb-and-Dumber-type comedy or an earnest gay movie. From that idea I started to ask myself, "What situation would lead to this?"
