The actor helps out his New York rocker pals...

THE MOONEY SUZUKI have recruited famous fan JACK BLACK to help out on their new video.

The actor and Tenacious D star plays the role of the band’s manager in the video for the new US single ‘In A Young Man’s Mind’. At the start of the video, Black is seen in the back of a car, giving ‘advice’ to the band, as well as screaming down the phone at nightclub owners.

“They had a great time filming,” a source close to the band told NME.COM. “He’s a fan and they met when the Mooneys did a tour with The Strokes. He’s a fan and was happy to appear!”

The Mooney Suzuki are keen to return the favour and will be making a cameo in the forthcoming Tenacious D movie. Before that hits the screens, they will come to the UK in May for a tour to promote their album ‘Electric Sweat’, which is released on May 12 via Columbia. Last year, the band toured with the likes of [a][/a] and fellow New York friends The Strokes.

The shows are at:

London Boston Arms (May 9)

Cardiff Barfly (10)

Leeds Cockpit (11)

Glasgow Barfly (12)

Liverpool The Masque (13)

Manchester Night & Day (14)

Coventry Colosseum (16)
