Hollywood star Jack Black was just like his slacker character in new movie School Of Rock before he became a successful actor.

The 34-year-old, who also fronts rock band Tenacious D, plays unemployed musician DEWEY FINN who cons his way into a music teaching job and then proceeds to teach the kids to perform heavy rock.

Black says, "Dewey is 82 per cent me, I've figured it out scientifically. He's basically me without any of the success I've had."
