Jack Black Would Not Be Opposed To Playing Penguin in Matt Reeves ‘Batman’


So it appears Josh Gad might have some competition for the Penguin role in the upcoming Matt Reeves Batman film. Jack Black revealed that he thought that the chance to play Penguin might be fun. Black talked about this subject during the promotion for his film, The House with a Clock in its Walls. 

I mean, I hate to put myself out there and say that because then when I don’t get that part, it was, ‘Oh, Jack tried to get the thing.’ I didn’t try anything! I’m just saying maybe that would be good.

He then followed up by imitating Burgess Meredith’s iconic cackle as the Penguin from the 60’s classic Batman TV series. If nothing else, he was well read on the subject. How do you think Jack Black would fare as the Penguin or would you prefer Josh Gad? Perhaps you have someone entirely different in mind. Share your casting choices with us at GVNation.
