Jack Black on School of Rock TV Series: 'I Have Nothing to Do With It'

School Of Rock TV Series

When School of Rock begins its first day on the small screen, might the original Dewey Finn make a cameo appearance?

Not so fast, says Jack Black, star of the 2003 film comedy.

In August, Nickelodeon ordered a 13-episode adaptation of the Paramount Pictures flick, which starred Black as a wannabe rock star who poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious private school.

But according to Black, there are no immediate plans for him to work on — let alone appear in — the small-screen adaptation.

School of Rock is cropping up in the strangest places, on Nickelodeon and on Broadway with Andrew Lloyd Webber. And I have nothing to do with any of them,” Black said Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour, where he was promoting his new geopolitical HBO comedy The Brink. “It’s kind of like one of my kids grew up and did things without my approval.”

When asked if he would like to be involved in the TV version, Black added: “No, my plate’s pretty full. I don’t like looking back. I only look forward.”
