Watch then, then watch "The Polka King" with Jack Black
1/29/18. I watched this documentary out of curiosity after watching The Polka King, in which Jack Black plays Jan Lewan. Have to say that Black makes him a much more appealing con man than Lewan actually was in real life. As surreal as Black was as Lewan, you can see why people greedy to make a killing handed over thousands of dollars to him to make a fast buck. Maybe a better way to view this is to watch this first and then watch Black's "The Polka King." You can then appreciate just how good Black is at making Lewan an attractive con man who was able to bilked millions in the end.
