Jack Black, Kung Fu Panda

(DreamWorks Animation)

In this animated flick for kids, a panda called Po (Jack Black) sets out to become a martial-arts expert and battle a villainous snow leopard (Ian McShane). Black, who’s also starring in the live-action Tropic Thunder this summer, was joined on one recording session by Dustin Hoffman, who plays Po’s mentor. ”He gave me a couple of tips,” says Black. And did Black reciprocate? ”Are you kidding me?” he says. ”It’s a one-way street when it comes to master-student relationships.” (June 6)
