"Extra’s" Jerry Penacoli had an entertaining conversation with "Bernie" stars Jack Black and Shirley MacClaine, talking with them about their upcoming dark comedy -- and some hot topics in the news.
The hilarious Jack Black was at The Grove to talk with Mario Lopezabout his plans to attend the upcoming annual Renal Teen Prom for kids with chronic kidney disease. The dance takes place this Sunday at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, Calif.
Here's a preview of what's opening in theaters this weekend, including the dance remake "Footloose"; the family drama "Fireflies in the Garden," starring Julia Roberts and Ryan Reynolds; the comedy "The Big Year," starring Steve Martin, Owen Wilson and Jack Black; and the sci-fi thriller prequel "The Thing."
While best-selling author Ellen DeGeneres made a special appearance at The Grove promoting her new book, "Seriously... I'm Kidding," "Extra" surprised the superstar host by bringing out one of her famous pals... Jack Black!
Jack, who was at The Grove performing in a concert benefiting The Miracle Project -- an organization dedicated to helping children with autism, read a passage from Ellen's book while he was behind the stage, out of Ellen's sight.

The stars of "Kung Fu Panda 2," Jack Black and megastar mom Angelina Jolie, sat down with "Extra" at the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival to talk about the film, tattoos and having more children. Jolie, who has six kids, added to her famous tattoo that shows the latitude and longitude of each child's birthplace.
Does the new tattoo mean she will adopt again? Jolie replied, "Well if they know that it's latitude and longitude they would have figured out quickly that it was Brad's birthplace." She added, "It doesn't take much investigation to figure that one out. It's Shawnee, Oklahoma."
