Jack Black Returns to Role of Scheming Musician in “The Polka King”

Maya Forbes and Wallace Wolodarsky’s adaptation The Polka King follows the true story of how a beloved local music legend dubbed The Polka King got caught up in a ponzi scheme and the inevitable chaotic aftermath that follows.

Playing the titular Polka King will be none other than Jack Black, which makes us want to believe that this character is somehow a distant relative to Dewey Finn, Black’s seminal character in 2003′s School of Rock

Also, Jenny Slate, Vanessa Bayer, Jason Schwartzman, JB Smoove, and Jackie Weaver make what look to be a pretty fantastic supporting cast.

The Polka King will begin streaming on Netflix on Friday, Jan. 12th.
