The 1992 political satire Bob Roberts is a particularly relevant film to watch these days, not just because 2012 is an election year, but because Carl DeMaio, frontrunner in the San Diego mayor's race, has a cameo.
Oh wait, that's not DeMaio. That's Jack Black as a teenage actor, long before he even joined Tenacious D.
OK, we'll confess we've made this comparison several times already, most recently in our Carl DeMaio A-Z guide. But this time we've got something fresh: A reaction from Black himself. ---
For his review of the film Bernie last week, our critic, Anders Wright, spoke with Black about his role as a soft-spoken murderer in a small Texas town. But he also took a minute to ask to talk about Black's doppelganger, DeMaio.
His response was priceless.
Anders Wright: So, in a recent issue, we compared Carl DeMaio, a weasily Republican candidate, with the character you played in Bob Roberts.
Jack Black: That's what this mayoral candidate is like? But he doesn't look like he's 12 years old, because that's what I think of when I think of me in Bob Roberts. I look like I was just a child.
No, but he is very youthful-looking. There are similarities.
