Interview | Jack Black and Jenny Slate talk The Polka King
To say that Jack Black is happy that his Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was the movie to unseat Star Wars: The Last Jedi from the top spot at the box office is an understatement. Watch our interview with him below to see him react to the news.
At the 29th Annual Palm Springs Film Festival, Black is doing a jig for another reason, as well. And this time, literally. He stars in the Netflix film The Polka King, which tells the true story (with a lot of liberties taken) of Jan Lewan, a Polish immigrant and polka legend who develops a plan to get rich that shocks his fans and lands him in jail.
Jenny Slate plays the larger than life character’s wife, Marla, who feels invisible next to her husband, and decides to take matters into her own hands in order to try to gain fame of her own.
