Actor Jack Black turns "School of Rock" role into reality

Actor Jack Black turned his "School of Rock" role into reality this week when he plucked two preteen musicians from obscurity and asked them to perform with his rock band in New Zealand.

Black who plays a cash-strapped teacher who turns his class into a rock band in the 2003 comedy was touring New Zealand's South Island with his two-man band, Tenacious D, when he spotted the boys performing for money in central Christchurch on Monday. Impressed, Black asked the young duo to open his Christchurch gig on Tuesday, according to media reports.

The boys said they did not sleep the night before the concert and had practiced their song, Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower," only about 10 times before the performance, reports AP.

"I was just trying not to wet myself, honestly," drummer Max Tetley, 11, told New Zealand's TV Three of meeting the Hollywood star.

Guitarist Alex Philpott, 10, said the experience was "so amazing," and that he had seen "School of Rock" around 45 times.
