Over the past few years, movie fans have seen a lot of iconic actors announce their retirement plans. All the Oscar winners like Daniel Day-Lewis and Robert Redford ended their careers after they had starred in There Will Be Blood and Butch Cassidy and also, Sundance Kid, All the President’s Men and also, The Last of the Mohicans. Now we have another actor, the comedian and Jumanji star named Jack Black.
“Maybe one more movie,” the actor said.
“I’m kind of enjoying the idea of early retirement….I’ve been saying for a long time that this is the last movie. We’ll see. I can’t really say what my next thing is because it’s too early; it’s a jinxer. I’ve got a couple of tricks up my sleeve. But not too many. I’m looking to wrap it up pretty soon. Ride off into the sunset.”
Black had revealed that his retirement comes from being away from his family, and he is open to the idea of a TV show in Los Angeles. This actor had talked about one more would-be retiree, Quentin Tarantino.
“We’ll see. I’m not a big five-year plan kind of guy though. I don’t really look down the road. I kind of take it day by day. And if something comes up, you know, obviously if [Quentin] Tarantino comes a-knocking, I’m gonna do that movie…Maybe I’m going to pull a Tarantino and say, ‘Guys. I’ve done 99 movies. I’m going to do one more. Gonna go out on top!’”
Jack Black had made his feature movie debut in Bob Roberts, which is a mockumentary and has been directed by Tim Robbins.
