Jack Black wants to rock the elementaries

TORONTO, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- Jack Black hopes his irreverent film "School of Rock," where he teaches fifth graders about rock and roll will become regular TV fare.

Jack misses Pee-Wee Herman's Playhouse, apparently.

"I miss Pee-Wee -- that was not only the best children's show at the time, it was the best TV show, period," Black told Zap2it.com Wednesday.

Although Black's doing well in film, with "High Fidelity," "Shallow Hal," "Orange County" and the upcoming "School of Rock" under his belt, he said he's willing to do a regular TV show with wacky double-entendres, much like Paul Reubens' character.

A fan of classic '70s family films like "Bad News Bears," "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" and "Meatballs," Black says he thinks children today don't appreciate sanitized schmaltzy family films.

Black is at the Toronto International Film Festival debuting his film.
