Jack Black Reveals He's Going on Tour with Tenacious D & Shows Off His "Tiger Roll" on 'Ellen'
When it comes to having fun, Jack Black knows it all! The actor stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and revealed that he's heading out on tour with his band Tenacious D for the first time in six years. But that's not all. Jack gave all of us a sneak peek at his rock 'n' roll "power move," the Tiger Roll!
"My band is coming back again," Jack revealed to Ellen DeGeneres, adding that he gets a little nervous before performing for Tenacious D fans.
"I get a little jittery, but I know at the end of the day that I get such a thrill from performing live with ‘The D.' Once I get out there, the adrenaline will take over."
When Ellen asked Jack if he gets in shape before touring, the hilarious actor shared his interesting some of his exercise routines, including his love of "running."
"I know you don’t look at me and think, 'Oh, marathon runner.' But there's a lot of exercise going on up there because the stages are huge. You got to run over there and rock those people face to face, and then you got to run all the way over there. And continue breathing well and rocking all the while!" Jack explained, with a touch of humor of course.
"So I do a lot of jogging with my guitar, you know how basketball players will run with their basketball? You got to be used to exercising with your instrument of choice. I mean it’s a lot of work, but its worth it."
Jack added that he does "a lot of cardio to keep my rock chops going," including playing a lot of frisbee. Yup, frisbee.
"I love frisbee," Jack admits. "I like to get out there and get tactile with something. I'm kind of like a dog," he joked. "I don’t catch it with my teeth, but if I see a shiny disc, that’s all I need!"
Something else Jack enjoys doing is tumbling on stage, a move he likes to call the Tiger Roll.
"It’s one of my power moves in my arsenal," he confesses. "It's not like a set thing. I don’t always do the tiger roll. It’s a special thing. If I do it, it will blow your mind."
Ellen says she'd love for Jack to blow her mind, so she bribes him with a bag full of "Ellen" underwear, and he accepts her request to show off his infamous tumble.
