Pal Jack Black thought he'd rock as Satan

‘King Kong’ star Jack Black says he begged his pal Dave Grohl to make a cameo as the devil in the forthcoming blockbuster movie.

Satan appears in the Peter Jackson-directed movie, and the actor was convinced the Foo Fighters frontman would be perfect for the role of Lucifer, reports

Black revealed: “I asked him to be in ‘King Kong’. We wanted him to play the devil but he was too busy.”

Black added: “He doesn’t have a major part – but he is a big influence.

“I don’t believe in the devil but I’ve always liked him as a character, kind of like Darth Vader. Satan pretty much invented rock.”
