I don't know if this will compare with Jack Black's duet with Cee-Lo Green (from Gnarls Barkley) on "Kung Fu Fighting." But it's funny. Jables, along with Ben "Mr. Furious" Stiller and Robert "Iron Man" Downey Jr. last night collaborate with a holographic Gladys Knight (from like 30 years ago, by the looks of it) on American Idol, on, of course, "Midnight Train To Georgia." You can buy it on iTunes, or see it probably all over YouTube. The three of them are co-starring in a movie directed by Stiller, Tropic Thunder, which looks hilarious.

I think that this movie thing is cute, but I'm glad to also report that Jack's day job - TENACIOUS D - is playing a few festival gigs in Europe this summer. Hopefully they'll be doing some stateside shows at some point too.

By the way, the Gladys thing was a bit weird. I've seen the holographic thing done with Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley, who are no longer with us. But Gladys is still alive. So that was kind of weird. But still funny.
