Jack Black debuted his faux sequel to the hit 80s comedy Teen Wolf on a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Although MTV is currently airing the latest season of the Teen Wolf television series, it’s not very similar to the Michael J. Fox movie people of a certain age remember from way back in the day.
Jack Black said he and fellow Tenacious D member Kyle Gass got together to film a sequel to the cult classic. In order to spread the good word about his non-existent project, Black debuted the “sizzle reel” for his follow-up Adult Wolf on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night talk show.
The sequel picks up years after Scott Howard’s days as a high school basketball star. The teen wolf and his dad spend most of their time in a trailer wondering what went wrong. Since their hearts are filled with bitterness and regret, they are forced to spend their days covered with an enormous amount of hair.
However, the guys are spurred into action when Scrubs alum John C. McGinley stops by to pick on them. Fed up with being treated as trailer park trash, they decide to get waxed. Unfortunately, they don’t have the $9,000 required for the procedure.
As fate would have it, a father and son basketball tournament is getting ready to take place. The grand prize is, of course, $9,000. Scott Howard and his dad suit up and hit the court, where they encounter McGinley and his NBA superstar “son.” It may sound very weird, but the fake Teen Wolf sequel is actually a lot of fun.
Helping Jack Black and Kyle Gass with their project are Ed Begley Jr., Rachel Bilson, and John Wall. For those of us who roll their eyes every time we heard about MTV’s Teen Wolf show, it’s kind of a cool concept. If you didn’t grow up watching the Michael J. Fox flick, then the joke might be lost on you.
If this sort of nostalgic stuff isn’t your cup of tea, then perhaps you’d be more interested in MTV’s show. The third season is currently airing on the network right now.
