We’ve always thought of Jack Black as a sorta comic book character. So it’s kinda fitting that he will star in a new video game called Brütal Legend. The game (due out sometime in 2008) will star metal roadie, Eddie Riggs voiced by Black, on his tour of destruction through a mystical world of rock and roll legend.
Riggs, armed with a battle axe, guitar and a V8 engine will battle ogres, demons and other assorted mythological creatures. His goal is to assemble an army of headbangers and attempt to save the day and get the girl. The game also has several big names donating their vocal talents to the cause. The likes if Lemmy Kilmister, Rob Halford, and Ronnie James Dio will all lend voices to the game.
For those that can’t wait that long. Lay your eyes on the game’s trailer now!
